This November, head to South Wharf for Juniperlooza, a springtime gin festival where copious amounts of the herbaceous spirit will be enjoyed at the Boatbuilders Yard. A line-up of 18 independent Australian and international gin producers will all showcase their gin in two forms: in a classic gin and tonic and in a signature gin cocktail concocted by the gin makers. 

Visitors will be able to expect food from the Boatbuilders Yard kitchen and tasting sessions led by some of the country's best gin producers. Stick around for some navy-strength entertainment at this one-day riverside gin fest.

Early bird tickets ($35) are on sale now until August 31. From September 1 tickets will be going for $45.
