For the first time ever, Circular Quay will be transformed into an Island beach village for 4 full days and nights in the middle of winter! 

Picture this: sand, an Island Bar, coconut beach huts, fish BBQ, palm trees, beach chairs and tropical cocktails. As part of the Bastille Festival. East Circular Quay will transform into a New Caledonian Beach Village.

Just like Parisians have experienced the “Paris Plage” (“Paris-Beach) phenomenon, popping-up along the banks of the river Seine, Sydney-siders are about to welcome a Kanak beach village on Circular Quay during the Bastille Festival. Sip on a coconut cocktail, bury your toes in the sand and watch fire twirlers.

Inspired by the Kanak culture of the French New Caledonia Island, this beach village will warm you up with its island BBQ cuisine, on the menu find prawns and pineapple skewers or roasted pork with coconut glaze. And if you’re thirsty a Kanak bar serving tropical rums with vanilla from Lifou, fresh coconut and pineapple cocktails, a curated selection of French rosés and sparkling wines. After all, New Caledonia is FRENCH. For dessert Messina and KOI have it covered with “Noumea-Style” Ice-Creams

If you or the kids want to do something active, they also have Coconut Pétanque – a unique take on the French game of pétanque. 

There will also be a giant treasure hunt for brave hearts all around Circular Quay and the Rocks with prizes galore. Ahoy there! 

When:      11-14 July 2019
