Food Activities in Sydney Australia

> >Good food month

Do you fancy activities in Sydney Australia associated with food? The Good Food Month Festival is one of the Sydney events that makes the city so appealing to its residents and tourists.

You have to be there in October for the festival, which is a great event dedicated to food from all around the world.

It used to be known as the Crave International Food Festival but it has slowly evolved into a :good food month".

Here are some of the cool activities that run during a whole month:

  • Famous chefs share their passion for cooking. They make mouth watering dishes that look stunning and are extremely difficult to replicate by us, ordinary folks.
  • Growers bring their fresh produce to stalls at Pyrmont Bay Park close to Darling Harbour, every first Saturday of the month, in the mornings. And of course there are cooking shows.
  • From time to time the Harbour Bridge closes one Sunday in October for the Breakfast on the Bridge experience. People bring their picnic rugs and food baskets to have breakfast with great views. 

Check out this video to see how traffic was stopped to get Sydney-siders to spend a great rainy morning on the Bridge.

  • The Rocks Markets are becoming the new destination for cheese, with producers coming from New South Wales and other states to promote their cheeses and gourmet dairy products.
  • Various food festivals happen across many suburbs that have a rich tradition of ethnic food. 

For zesty, yummy, luscious and memorable eats go to:

  • Strathfield for Korean, Chinese and Indian tastes;
  • Leichhardt for Italian pizza and pasta; 
  • Ashfield for Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai flavours;
  • Summer Hill for Egyptian, Turkish, Lebanese bites;
  • Auburn for Middle Eastern and South East Asian food.

Food is really big in Sydney. People like to go out often for a nice dinner. So what better way to spend a warm spring evening than at the Noodle Markets in Hyde Park?

For 2 weeks, during weekday evenings in October, Hyde Park is a huge open air dining room. With dozens of stalls around the park and tables and chairs everywhere, people came in droves, straight from work, for a good night out.
