Australians love our cheese, and we have everything from dedicated fromageries and festivals dedicated to the dairy foodstuff to cheese wheels filled with pasta and bottomless raclette sessions to prove it. Our stomachs are working overtime to digest all the lactose — and, honestly, we've never been happier.

And the love affair only continues with this cheesy annual event. Bon Fromage — a festival specifically celebrating European cheese — is returning in 2022, popping back up with a full in-person festival following a couple of disrupted years.

The whole thing will be taking place from Friday, June 3 until Sunday, June 5, coinciding with the city's favourite light and arts festival Vivid. With the festival taking over the Overseas Passenger Terminal's Cargo Hall, you'll be able to enjoy samples of cheese and wine as you take in the view of the Sydney Opera House during Vivid.

Across the weekend, one tonne of cheese will be given out, with a huge cheese buffet filled with Comté, cantal, emmental, brie, camembert, triple-crème, langres and Pont l'Évêque being set up as the centrepiece of the festival.

There will also be a market running where twelve of the country's top cheesemongers and chefs will be exhibiting and selling cheeses; a pop-up bar with wine, craft beer and spirits; and cheese-based masterclasses throughout the weekend.

Best of all, entry to the festival, all of the cheese tastings and the masterclasses are all free.
