The Rocks Aroma Festival 25th July 2010

mmm coffee, I will be making an effort to get to this...

Pack your passport and explore divine taste sensations at The Oasis, The Continent, The Orient and The Latin Quarter.Camel Rides at the Aroma Festival

Try cups of coffee for $2; warm up with tea, chai and hot chocolate; give in to temptation with chocolate dipped strawberries and cute cupcakes; and enjoy free entertainment at four unique destinations in The Rocks.

This year the Aroma team will attempt to break their Mona Lisa coffee sculpture world record with a brand new iconic image and the famous harbourside camel rides are back!

10am to 5pm, Sunday 25 July.

This is always a bit of fun, notwithstanding the crowds. If anyone is doing it, you gotta try cold filtered coffee.

Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it this year as I will be walking 33km as part of my Oxfam training!

I'm expecting that I'll actually be in at the pointy end of the city on Sunday, but I'm actually on the good ship HP something-or-other, and we'll be a part of the official welcoming committee for the Plastiki as she arrives at the end of her journey from San Francisco.
