Australian Artisan Cheese & Wine Experience at The Squires Landing
The Australian Artisan Cheese & Wine Experience is a short course showcasing the best of Australia’s cheese making talents matched with some great Australian wines. After 10 years of this unique culinary experience having been hosted from Fort Denison (2007-2017) and more recently from Cockatoo Island (2017-2018) we are thrilled to have secured an even MORE impressive venue from which to host this Agritourism showcase at the The Squire’s Landing, Circular Quay.
This experience is a fantastic introduction to the local and growing boutique cheese industry. Unbeknown to many, Sydney Harbour has a rich history in Australia’s milk and cheese industry being the location where cattle from England were off loaded from the First Fleet boats in 1788 onto the sandbank that is today famously known as Bennelong Point. Originally called Cattle Point, the cattle were held there in make shift enclosures in the area now home to the Opera House. Agritourism Events Australia are bringing farmhouse Australian cheese back to Sydney Harbour.
