There are fridges under the palm trees and cool boxes alongside the wave pool. These are not just regular fridges though. Each one is a work of art, a canvas displaying colourful birds, flowers or there are contemporary designs that I don’t quite understand. Cool boxes and fridges turned onto their sides with no doors, have been filled with colourful plants to create planters. People have let their imaginations run wild.
The Darwin Fridge Festival is unique to Darwin, a quirky addition to the festival scene that came about completely by accident. The ‘fringe’ festival became the ‘fridge’ festival through a typing error. It runs until 27th October with fridges dotted around the Darwin Waterfront.
