Is there a better way to end the week than by sipping wine, listening to live music and tasting the region’s best seafood, all against the spectacular backdrop of the Brisbane River? If this sounds like your idea of a perfect Sunday, then boy do we have the perfect event for you. After the immense success of its previous two editions, Sea to the City, Brisbane’s delicious bug and oyster trail, is back for another round.

Once again taking over Brisbane’s famous Eagle Street Pier precinct on Sunday 30 May, Sea to the City is an all-afternoon-long alfresco dining experience involving a few of Brisbane’s best riverside restaurants. The stars of the event though, will be the specially curated menus focused on worshipping the flavours and forms of bugs and oysters in all their glory.

Madame Wu, Coppa Spuntino, Rico’s Bar and Restaurant, Fatcow Steak and Lobster, Massimo Bar & Restaurant, Naga Thai and City Winery are just a handful of the 15 amazing restaurants and bars getting in on the action, serving mouth-watering unique dishes that hero the region’s best oysters and bugs from pop-up stalls around the precinct.

Seafood not your thing? Not to worry, pop-up food stalls and crustacean-free menu items mean that there will be plenty of options for even the pickiest of eaters—so there is no excuse to miss out.  Make sure to end your week the right way by treating yourself to a day filled with wine, live music, river views and, of course, an epic array of fresh seafood.

Sea to the City will be free to attend with no need to get tickets—which means you have more to spend on as much wine and seafood as your wallet and stomach can handle.
