Summer’s for being outdoors as much as possible – hell, go all Man From Snowy River and sleep out there in some sort of outback humpy, it’s only warm 1/4 of the year you know?

One great thing you can do outdoors is lounge around listening to tunes with your mates – and Cockatoo Island‘s really giving it to ya this year, in the form of their Campfire Sessions.

ICYMI, Cockatoo Island is smack-bang in the middle of Sydney Harbour, so it boasts siq views and a delightful ocean breeze. It’s the perfect spot for a vino/brewski with some pals.

Campfire Sessions is being programmed by music darlings 505, and features a whole slew of home-grown talent like Wartime Sweethearts and Brendan Gallagher.

Oh, and if sweet acoustic tunes + alcohol wasn’t enough to entice you, there’ll be swish artisanal cheese boards on offer too c/o McIntosh & Bowman. Cheese, wine and tunes? Sign us the hell up.

It was an Artisan Cheese & High-Tea kind of Afternoon…..
