    Wordless, witty and fun, STOMP has become a global phenomenon. Eight performers use non-traditional instruments - everything from supermarket trolleys to Zippo lighters, plastic bags to garbage can lids, and even the kitchen sink - to hammer out an explosively feel-good rhythm. Loved by audiences of all ages!

    Come and see what all the noise is about! 31 July - 5 August 2018.

  • Jersey Boys

    Jersey Boys tells the true-life story of four guys from the wrong side of the tracks, the rise to stardom of Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons, one of the most successful bands in pop music history. The band sold more than 175 million records and were inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame for their worldwide hits, including Can’t Take My Eyes Off You, Walk Like a Man, Bye Bye Baby, Sherry and Big Girl’s Don’t Cry, which all feature in the musical.

  • Inspiring Locals - Street Art Project

    The Novotel Sydney Rockford Darling Harbour is excited to be a part of ANZ's 'Inspiring Locals' initiative, which aims to improve understanding, financial capability, and inclusion of Aboriginal Australians.

    Australian artist, Adnate, had been commissioned to paint a ten storey tall mural of Aboriginal activist Jenny Munro, on the Novotel Rockford’s main wall, facing Harbour St. This is part of a series of portraits that will appear across Sydney in the run up to this year’s Archibald Prize. 

    It is a truly exciting development in Darling Harbour as Jenny Munro is a true leader for her people, having achieved significant breakthroughs in her fight for aboriginal rights.

    The painting of the 10-storey mural will commence late June and is set for completion at the end of July. So keep an eye out for its development!

    Jenny Munro

    Founder of the Redfern Aboriginal Tent Embassy, Wiradjuri elder Jenny Munro has been fighting for Aboriginal housing rights for more than four decades.

    In 2014 Jenny Munro began the Redfern Tent Embassy to protest the establishment of a commercial precinct on the area known as ‘The Block’ in Redfern, Sydney. After more than 400 days of occupation, the Redfern Tent Embassy declared a victory, with $5 million committed by the Australian Government to guarantee the construction of low cost housing for poor Aboriginal people.

    Jenny Munro continues to fight for Aboriginal rights and sovereignty, motivated by what she sees as a system that continues to oppress Aboriginal Australians. 

    Adnate

    Matt Adnate is one of street art's most influential big wall painters. His works portraying indigenous children have captivated viewers around the world. Adnate strongly believes in giving back to the communities to which his subjects belong.

    Beyond deepening his own understanding of Aboriginal culture, Adnate hopes that his art might trigger greater public engagement with indigenous issues.
