The Pyrmont Festival is back again in 2017 with a two-week long event to advertise the best of both the Pyrmont and New South Wale’s stunning Mudgee region. Pyrmont will play host to the event from May 13th – 27th, giving visitors the opportunity to experience the country charm of the Mudgee Region as well as the best the city has to offer, which for most people means lots and lots of incredible drops of cool-climate wine.
