Sea to the City Brisbane

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 debut last year, Sea to the City, Brisbane’s delicious bug and oyster trail, is back for round two.

Once again taking over Brisbane’s famous Eagle Street Pier precinct on Sunday 13 October, Sea to the City is an all-day-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. Mr & Mrs G Riverbar, Il Centro Restaurant, Cha Cha Char Wine Bar & Grill, Saké Restaurant & Bar, Jellyfish Restaurant and Blackbird Bar & Grill are just a handful of the 17 amazing restaurants getting in on the action, serving mouth-watering unique dishes that hero the region’s best oysters and bugs.

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.
