The second Equinox – Autumn Celebration of the Senses festival will be a richer, more varied highlight and showcase of all that is great about the Blue Mountains in Autumn 2023.
Created and managed by Blue Mountains Tourism this year as a recovery project, Equinox – Autumn Celebration of the Senses will be a chance to immerse yourself in the wonderful bounty of life in the Blue Mountains.
Spanning the entire Blue Mountains region over four weekends between March 10 and April 2, the festival will be a convergence of fine food and craft beverages, music, art and entertainment and, of course, the spectacular natural environment.
Blue Mountains Tourism president Jason Cronshaw said: ``The inaugural Equinox festival was a success in that it provided a positive focus for businesses struggling to find a way forward through the pandemic.
``This time around, we have more time to include more businesses.
``There are so many excellent events and activities you won’t be able to choose just one.
``It’s going to be fantastic – I want to get along to everything!’’
Equinox – Autumn Celebration of the Senses 2023 is about harmony, warmth and connection.
It is nourishment for the body and soul through feasts and fabulous events tied together with the threads of local stories.
There’ll be an opulent masquerade ball, outdoor adventures, magic, live music vibes, markets, heritage, fireside storytelling, stargazing, Indigenous workshops and guided tours.
FEAST will be the culinary chapter and, like a box of chocolates, the collection of menus, events and flavours across more than 15 venues will surprise with every bite.
Lighting displays, dancing, trendy night spots with belly warming drinks, an adult craft beverage trail and a rediscovery tour for mature travellers are all on the program set against and within the breathtaking backdrop of one of the most recognisable landscapes on Earth.

This event is made possible by $2.6 million from the Bushfire Local Economic Recovery Fund, co-funded by the Australian Government and NSW Government. With the grant Blue Mountains Tourism, as the leading tourism authority in the region, will administer and manage the Blue Mountains Visitor Economy Revitalisation Project, a two-year destination management program that will reinstate the Blue Mountains as a key tourist destination in NSW and Australia.
