Untamed Gourmet

From kangaroo to unusual brews, desert lime and more. Discover wild new flavours across October with our celebration of native Australian ingredients.

Treat yourself to something delectably different as Sydney’s beautiful historic precinct transforms into a total foodie-fest.

Untamed Gourmet is a celebration of original Australian ingredients. Renowned for its flora, fauna and wild, uninhibited spaces, The Rocks brings these rare native flavours together to create dining and experiences that are as unique as the Aussie landscape.

Try dishes with a deliciously indigenous twist or explore native food stalls at The Rocks Markets - you can even catch live cooking demonstrations using unique local ingredients. Kangaroo prosciutto, anyone? How about a Wattleseed Espresso Martini? Or maybe you’ll go for Murray River Cod with Desert Lime and Warrigal Greens. Divine.

In between bites, check out some of the creative ventures, including the Wayne Quilliam Photography exhibition, Nokuna Thumpun Mungi (Look Hunt Eat); A beautiful visual journey that unravels the stories behind indigenous food and ingredients. It’s a feast for your senses at The Rocks this October.
