The Harvest Picnic It’s our 21st birthday and we are going to rock!

Join us to celebrate this momentous milestone.

Great Entertainment

Karen Martini celebrity chef, restaurateur and TV presenter will be joining us in the Cooking Demonstration marquee. Karen’s food has a distinctly Mediterranean influence. Discover her passion for fresh herbs, fennel, coriander seeds, cumin, garlic, cheeses, olives, anchovies and virgin olive oil.

Paul Wilson, executive chef at the Botanical and the Half Moon and author of the acclaimed cookbook "The Botanical, Inside the Iconic Brasserie", will be showcasing his recipes with sustainable fish and seafood cookery.

Justin Wise from The Press Club will be demonstrating why he was the 2009 Young Chef (The Age Good Food Guide) in the Cooking Marquee.

Iconic rocker Darryl Braithwaite, one of the country’s premier performers with a career spanning more than 30 years will spearhead the line up at The Rock this year.

Also joining us for the first time will be the African Drumming ensemble. Orchestrated specifically for families, this will be an interactive gig with drumming and dancing to the individual West African music and culture.

The Best of Victoria

We will be showcasing the best boutique food and wine that Victoria has to offer. Taste exotic barbecue flavours, magnificent regional wines, unusual cheeses, the finest preserves, full flavoured ice-cream and a great variety of delicious smallgoods. Sample delicious freshly caught calamari served in sauces from Bangerz. Try and resist the handcrafted chocolates from Colliers using the finest Swiss Couverture.
