What’s on Guide: Queen’s Birthday EditionJun 1, 2018


With the Queen’s Birthday Weekend coming up, there’s certainly a lot to do in Sydney this week, whether it’s grabbing a delicious Italian cocktail for Negroni Week or spending a few days in the NSW Central Ranges. Read on to see what awaits you during this royal week.

Negroni Week @ The Morrison
225 George St, Sydney CBD

Your favourite Italian cocktail is getting an entire week dedicated to it, and better yet, The Morrison is celebrating this delicious drink in coordination with Oz Harvest, Australia’s largest food rescue charity.

Over 7 days from the 4th-10th of June, The Morrison will be crafting 7 different negronis, with an interactive event that allows you to see this classic mixed drink made right before your very eyes. The seven negronis on offer are: bottled negroni, blood orange negroni, sour negroni, old school negroni, oyster sbagliato, peach fizz negroni and, finally, rose negroni. So whether you’re more of a classic type or looking for a bit more of a modern fizz, The Morrison knows what to serve up. Be sure to drink for a cause and free up a day (or several!) in your calendar to get your negroni fix.

Long Weekend @ Logan Wines
1320 Castlereagh Highway, Apple Tree Flat

Get down to Logan Wines in the beautiful suburb of Apple Tree Flat to enjoy some delicious wines during the Queen’s Birthday Long Weekend. Sip on a chardonnay or pinot noir as you enjoy the view from the architecturally-designed tasting room or take a walk along the grass, taking in the crisp air before the chilly winter air truly arrives.

During the weekend, there will be live music and grazing plates available everyday from 12pm – the only thing you need to bring is a picnic blanket! You’ve never seen the NSW Central Ranges like this before, and you might not have the opportunity again, so indulge your inner wino. You know what they say – everything happens for a riesling.

Queen’s Birthday Party @ Bungalow 8
3 Lime St, Sydney CBD

Party all weekend long at Bungalow 8’s Queen’s Birthday Weekend Party, with a huge roster of live music acts, late night DJs and more.

Bungalow 8’s Club Cali late night DJs will jam long into the night, playing until 3.30am each night. You can enjoy this musical marathon with some special English offerings, with $10 Bombay Gin Tonics or $12 Yorkshire Puddings with Gravy.

For those adults out there with children, come in during the day on Sunday for a more responsible time out, with a Kids Corner from 12-3pm that has a range of activities for the little ones, including Giant Jenga and a graffiti wall. Sounds like there’s something for everyone.

Harvest Long Lunch @ Noonaweena
1442 George Downes Drive, Kulnura

Noonaweena is hosting two Harvest Festival Central Coast long lunch sittings on the 9th and 10th of June during the upcoming Queen’s Birthday weekend! Known for their blending of contemporary architecture lodgings with the serene beauty of their surrounding landscape, this is a lunch you’ll cherish for a long time to come.

As you savour some delicious local produce lunch platters (which is best paired with a local wine, beer or Eastcoast juice), a group of ‘Blues on the Mountain’ musicians will provide backing music that will give your meal a soothing ambiance. You can enjoy these shared platters for 2 people for just $40 per person, and if you want to stay overnight, Noonaweena also offers accommodation from $340 per room per night.

Gin Tasting & Matching Canapes @ RACA
89 Macquarie St, Sydney CBD

Ever wanted to sample multiple types of gin but never had the opportunity? Well now’s your chance! The Royal Automobile Club of Australia is helping you channel your inner James Bond on the 9th of June with 5 varying gins on offer with matching canapes to boot. 

Gin specialist Patrick Tully will be there to guide you along the way, explaining and highlighting the subtleties on each of the gin types, be it a Citadelle Reserve Gin all the way from France or Four Pillars Dry, a homegrown gin from Victoria! The second star of the show is of course the food, with gin cured salmon, smoked duck breast, venison carpaccia and Sydney rock oysters being just a few of the delectables partnering up with your spirit. I don’t know about you, but this sounds like a grand way to cap off the Queen’s Birthday Weekend.
