Gather up your favourite soft toys, and your little people of course, and head down to the beautiful grounds of the Rippon Lea Estate on Sunday 26 February 2017, for the inaugural Teddy Bears' Picnic hosted by the National Trust.

This year's event is Rippon Lea's 27th Teddy Bears' Picnic! 27 years of entertaining Melbourne children and their beloved teddy bears, for a day of entertainment and summer fun.



You couldn't ask for a better venue to host a Teddy Bears' Picnic. The Rippon Lea Estate in Elsternwick is a beautiful property, originally built in 1868 for a wealthy Melbourne businessman Frederick Sargood, who made his money selling soft goods on the goldfields.

The estate is now under the care of the National Trust of Australia, and is open for tours, exhibitions and private hire.

Rippon Lea's Teddy Bears' Picnic is one of the regular events held at the historic venue, which welcomes Melburnian families to enjoy the beautiful grounds on a fun day out.

Held in the gardens of Rippon Lea, the Teddy Bears' Picnic invites families to enjoy roving entertainment, performances, market stalls and an array of activities. The Melbourne Football Club pay a special visit, so you can test your footy skills out and rub shoulders with some of the AFLís up and coming stars.

Don't forget to enter the famous Teddy Bear Parade and Teddy Bear Treasure Hunt.

Food trucks will be serving delicious savoury and sweet options. Be aware there is no ATM onsite at Rippon Lea (it is a historic estate after all!) and most vendors accept cash only.

Gates open at 10am sharp, be sure to get in quick as prizes for the Teddy Bear Hunt are limited.

Grab a picnic, a blanket, your mates, your extended family, and most importantly, your teddy bears, in what promises to be a great day out for everyone.
