BBQ Festival’s are all the rage right now; just look at how packed out Meatstock gets every year. It’s no revelation that Aussies love their BBQ so the more of these things popping up around the country the better. Enter the Australian Hotel and Brewery who will be putting on an epic three-day BBQ Food Fest in Rouse Hill this November to celebrate all that is delicious about smoked meats and Aussie craft beers, sitting along with family-friendly entertainment and live music headed by Thirsty Merc.
With a focus on low-and-slow BBQ, the festival will be made up of various food trucks offering tender and smokey BBQ meats as well as a few other cuisines, some desserts, and tinnies from Australian Brewery. There’ll be a bunch of activities set up to really nail that family festival vibe, from face painting and showbag stalls to rides and market stalls.
