Unlikely alliance proves a festival winner

It is an unlikely combination that works.

Celebrating its sixth year, Pyrmont Festival returns in 2016 with a 10-day program to showcase the best of the Mudgee Region and Pyrmont. Country cool meets city funk. 


The country folk hit the big smoke and get together with the inner-city hipsters for a festival that celebrates wine, food and fun, including wine dinners and tastings, photographic exhibitions and art displays.

Participating Mudgee wineries include Burrundulla Wines, Robert Stein Vineyard, Huntington Estate and Petersen’s, Mudgee Ridge, Moothi Estate, Walter Wines, Burnbrae Wines and Manners Wines. 

Pyrmont eateries featured are Blue Eye Dragon, CafĂ© Morso, Flying Fish, Bar Zini, The Apprentice, Brio, The Persian Room, Zebra Lounge, Le Trader, Quarryman Hotel, Dunkirk Hotel, Ovolo 1888, Gourmandise de Paris and Pyrmont Point Hotel, showcasing 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 and Sunday, May 14-15. 

An event designed for the whole family, with live music, local and Mudgee region artists showcasing sculptures, rides and children’s entertainment and approximately 100 stalls where guests can meet winemakers, 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 an 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 is three hours west of Sydney (on a good day).
