NSW North Coast – start working up an appetite! Tastings on Hastings is back for its 15th delicious year, and we very literally couldn’t be more excited. Or peckish.
The culinary delight of the mid-North, Tastings on Hastings, brings to light the magic of the region’s farmers, wine growers, food producers, brewers and artisans; feeding the minds, stomachs and souls of the Greater Port Macquarie region and far beyond.
But wait! There’s more!
Whilst the main delectable event will be held on Saturday 28 October, smooshing previous years’ two days events into one mouth-watering extravaganza, a banging roster of satellite events has been drawn up to truly round out the experience. And our waistlines. These immersive experiences will take you to the source of the golden stuff – straight to the wineries, restaurants and farmers markets that’ll be exhibiting on the day.
We all know trekking home in a food coma is zero fun. Stay at Port Macquarie YHA so you can enjoy a cheeky brunch the next day! Located halfway between Sydney and Byron Bay, Port Macquarie YHA is more like a resort than a backpacker hostel. Guests can relax in the poolside cabana, swim, or snooze in a hammock under palm trees.
Make new friends with a BBQ in our cosy courtyard, enjoy loads of entertainment in the games and TV/movie room, and hang out with Cheeky, our pet parrot. Tastings is but a five minute stroll (read: rolling distance) away, so you can eat and sleep til' your heart is content.
