The Australian Artisan Cheese & Wine Experience was held on Fort Denison between 2007-2017 and Cockatoo Island June 2017-March 2018. 

We are now offering this experience from The Squires Landing, Circular Quay, The Rocks over 4 months between July and September 2018.

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.
