Coffee lovers paradise for sure


The Rocks Aroma Festival is an annual event of all things coffee, and it is fair to say for all things that go so well with coffee simultaneously. The crowds tend to agree. I mean, come to this annual festival 45 minutes after the 10am opening time, and already the crowds are in full bloom ready for some decent doses of caffeine. Then again, The Rocks Aroma Festival hits Sydney Harbour once a year, and it is usually on a Sunday (well it always is) in July.

A choice when it comes to some Rocky Road


It can (kind of) feel like a Christmas in July celebration, and especially on a beautiful day. Funnily enough, speaking of the weather, the rain and the wind tends to hold off. That is a great sign.

Stylish coffee machine


So much coffee to adore, and at fairly cheap prices too. The hot rainbow chai tea was a delight: choose from either the cow or the soy for only $3 a cup, and it comes out of a hot water container covered in rainbows. Furthermore, every chai tea purchase at this stand gives you a free sample.

Fruit even gets creative here. Nice one.


Chocolate dipped strawberries (and other chocolate dipped treats, even in the gluten free form) are (also) ever so popular at this festival. Kind of like The Rocks Foodies Market on steroids. Walk on down, and the traditional "The Rocks Market" that sells crafts and jewellery to name, is still a highlight. Also the good old corn on the cob, fame of The Rocks when it comes to food.

The queue for some Spanish donut fare


Rocky Road in different flavours was also a treat here for $2.50 a pop. Furthermore, for something new, a strong Espresso Martini cocktail was a pleasant shock. Live bands continue to entertain and adore. The churros stand enjoyed a long queue at First Fleet Park, and if you want to increase your sweetener IQ, your wish has been granted, as a result of ample opportunities in order to do so. Furthermore, some free samples were handed out, including a 500ml carton of Oak Iced Coffee. Just remember to bring the water bottle to help yourself out. Love it. Looking forward to next years Sydney caffeine paradise ever some more. Amen, it is easy to get addicted.
