Events on HDC Land

HDC manages two spectacular spaces that have become the city's key event and activation spaces - Honeysuckle precinct and Market Street Lawn.

HDC owns and licences spaces in these precincts for events and activations. If you would like to hold an event in any of our spaces, please contact our events team at

Honeysuckle precinct

The Honeysuckle waterfront precinct is a spectacular urban space that showcases the working harbour to the world. It has been redeveloped from a working industrial area to an attractive residential, commercial and retail area on the harbour's edge.

Connected by a very popular promenade, Honeysuckle is the destination for walkers, runners and cyclists and is a key recreational destination for people visiting our city. Honeysuckle has become the city's premier large community event space and has hosted events like New Year's Eve celebrations, the Winter Heat festival and the Red Lantern walk.

New Year's Eve

Market Street Lawn

Market Street Lawn

The Market Street Lawn, opposite Queen's Wharf, is a community open space in the former heavy rail corridor. It provides access between the city and the waterfront and is a perfect location for small to medium events and activations.

Market Street Lawn is currently under construction and is due for completion in late 2018. When it is open, it will reflect what the community told us it wanted to see - attractive public space with seating, shade, engaging water feature, open green areas and amenity to support all sorts of activation.

Community Events

Since the Honeysuckle Public domain and Market Street Lawn was created we have held a range of community events in the spaces. These include the Commonwealth Games baton relay, Street Feast, Petting Zoos and Game Changers.
