Townsville BMW Sensation Food and Wine Festival

For the first time ever the historic Victoria Bridge in the CBD will be transformed to host the inaugural Townsville BMW Sensation Food and Wine Festival.

This is a two-day wine & food event not to be missed celebrating all things epicurean. Linking Townsville’s premier dining precinct – Palmer Street – with the newly revitalised CBD.


5 course degustation-dining event prepared by Townsville’s finest five restaurants. I’ll be there along with Sandalford’s Chief Winemaker Paul Boulden to share our expertise throughout the evening.

I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a delightful winter Sunday afternoon in Townsville. It’s going to be a great event sure to engage and delight all palates. The Victoria Bridge will be transformed into a colorful al fresco style cafe.


Plus  you will get to enjoy unique performances by the talented and dynamic Steve Clisby and his band who will be at both events.

For full details go to the Townsville BMW Sensation Website.

Look forward to seeing you there.
