Looking for new places in Sydney to take your kids or enjoy Gluten-free treats?

Held usually between September & October each year, the Mid-Autumn (also known as Moon Festival) is a bit like the Chinese version of Thanksgiving; families come together far & wide to enjoy each other’s company. But most people will know it basically as that festival where your business partners, relatives and colleagues bombard you with moon cakes! Top tip: If you know someone’s gonna gift you the sweet stuff, try asking for Ice Moon Cakes instead! Trust us, they’re a whole lot better.
