More than 1500 Sydneysiders, decked head-to-toe in their best white converged on the forecourt of the Museum of Contemporary Art for Sydneys inaugural Dīner en Blanc, a mysterious, impromptu and quite spectacular evening picnic.
From 6pm on Saturday evening, Australias global city put on fine weather, great tunes, delicious food, marvellous wines, plenty of white and some festive dancing in the shadows of the iconic Harbour Bridge and Sydney Opera House.
And as soon as it started, it seemed it had gone with the whole affair packed up and moved on before midnight.
Dīner en Blanc was launched by a group of friends more than 20 years ago in Paris and now brings together more than 15,000 people each year, to some of the worlds biggest cities such as New York, Vancouver, Barcelona, Mexico City, Singapore and many more.
This wonderful event was supported by the NSW Government through Destination NSW and was part of the Crave Sydney International Food Festival. Other proud partners included Pol Roger champagne, Terre a Terre and Spinifex wines and Santa Vittoria.
