The Best Spots To Devour A Picnic Basket In Sydney

When it comes to places to have a picnic in Sydney, the world is your oyster. Sydney has it all, with magnificent beaches and beautiful parks, needless to say, we are spoiled for choice. 

A picnic is the perfect idea for any occasion; say a romantic date for two, a birthday celebration with mates or family gatherings on a Sunday afternoon. Here at Pretty Green, we believe that picnic hampers are the perfect gift - ideal for any event! 

Given the year we’ve just had, most of us had to think outside the box when coming up with ways we would celebrate those special occasions, in a safe way. Picnics quickly became a popular choice. Now that summer is well and truly here, enjoying a picnic with loved ones is ideal in these warmer months. 

Luckily for you, Pretty Green has an extensive range of picnic hampers that suits any affair. Whilst enjoying the hamper’s delish treats and refreshing beverages, you’d also be supporting local Aussie producers. All of our products are locally sourced and 100% Australian made. Plus, all of our gifts are wrapped in sustainable packaging and securely packed in a colourful biodegradable box! 

Below are just some of the many fantastic places to hold your next picnic; all located within Sydney.
