Back to Event list.

Curly Flat is proud to be part of the Budburst Festival once again, while we have hearty bistro style food, music and of course wines for tasting, the whole region comes alive and its a great time to visit to discover some hidden gems across this diverse and world class wine region.

Head out of town to discover the hidden treasures set in the maze of laneways that weave around the Macedon Ranges. On November 17 + 18, the region’s vignerons throw open their doors to everyone to celebrate Budburst, the buds bursting on a new vintage.

You will find lots to surprise you around the secret laneways – the beating heart of our region. There will be live entertainment, country hospitality, wine tastings, dinners, lunches and so much more! Each venue is open between 10am and 5pm on both days of the festival.

A weekend Festival Pass is only $22.50 pp if you buy online and $25 pp if you purchase at a venue during the Festival Weekend.

If you purchase on-line before 10 November 2018, early-bird tickets are $20 so get in quick!

The winery pass gives you access to over 100+ wine styles from 30+ wineries at 20 venues across the region over the two days. It inlcudes your own tasting glass and a Festival Passport guide giving information about the participating wineries, wine trails and key venues across the region.
