Huskisson's Beer & BBQ Fest is Back 

Huskisson is undoubtedly one of our favourite weekend trips from Sydney. There's just something about the sea air, pristine white sand beaches and laid-back vibes. And if you're a foodie, there's even more reason to visit.  

This June Huskisson Hotel in Jervis Bay is hosting the Beer & BBQ festival of our dreams. Some of the best breweries in Sydney and Canberra will be converging on the coastal town alongside BBQ food trucks, a mechanical bull and a wood-chopping comp. Regional produce and local businesses will be championed throughout the festival that will also feature live music and a hot wing challenge. And for the kiddos, there'll be face painting and a 13-metre jumping castle! Sounds like a weekend well spent to us.
