It is a unique opportunity for Pyrmont to demonstrate its diversity as a dining and lifestyle precinct just two-kilometres from the CBD. The festival events span across art galleries, Pyrmont Wharf, Pirrama Park, Sydney TAFE and The Star, as well as restaurants, bars, bottle shops and cafes.

The Mudgee Region just 3.5-hours drive from Sydney in Central NSW is one of the State’s first established wine regions and the ideal location to reset your senses. It is renowned for its food and wine with more than 40 family-run boutique wineries, as well as excellent art, music, nature and historical experiences.
