They are responsible for facilitating iconic large-scale events such as New Year’s Eve and Carols in the Domain plus bespoke experiences and weddings. 

Melissa has a passion for creating inclusive events, curating festivals and showcasing Australia’s vibrant entertainment industry. These experiences attract thousands of people to Sydney's leading event venues and world-class green spaces.  

Before joining the Garden in 2016, Mel worked on hallmark events such as Australia Day, the Swans Tickertape Parade, Chinese New Year Parade and World Youth Day.

As restrictions on events and public gatherings are eased in Sydney, the community is looking for places to connect and be entertained in a COVID-safe place. We are seeing producers opting for boutique-style events in venues full of fresh open air and lush green landscapes like the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney and Domain.
