Celebrating its sixth year, Pyrmont Festival returns in 2016 with a giant 10-day program to showcase the best of the Mudgee Region and Pyrmont.
Guests have the chance to experience both the country charm of the Mudgee Region, coupled with the best of the city, including a plethora of wine dinners and tastings, photographic exhibitions and art displays.
This year, participating Mudgee Wineries include Burrundulla Wines, Robert Stein Vineyard, Huntington Estate and Pieter van Gent Wines. Pyrmont eateries, including Blue Eye Dragon, Café Morso, Flying Fish, Bar Zini, The Apprentice, Brio, The Persian Room and Pyrmont Point Hotel will showcase the best of their dining experiences with Mudgee wines to match at lunches, dinners and tastings across the 10 days.
The highlight of the festival will be a two-day free headliner event in the City’s award winning Pirrama Park on Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 May. An event designed for the whole family, with live music, local and Mudgee region artists showcasing renowned Mudgee Sculptures, rides and children’s entertainment and approximately 100 stalls where guests can meet wine-makers, participate in tastings and sample a broad range of fine foods.
Pyrmont Festival is a product of industry collaboration with Mudgee Region Tourism, Mid Western Regional Council and Mudgee Wine Grape Growers Inc, presented by Pyrmont Ultimo Chamber of Commerce with the City of Sydney. It is a unique opportunity for Pyrmont, just two kilometres from the CBD, to demonstrate its position as one of Sydney’s fastest growing tourist, creative, cultural and dining precincts.
The Mudgee Region is the third largest grape-growing region in NSW and one of the oldest wine regions in the state. Just a 1.5-hour drive from the Blue Mountains, Mudgee can also be reached by plane from Sydney Airport via a 50-minute flight, with flights departing each day.
The Star is Principal Partner and and IGA is Corporate Partner.
