Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Mountains, the Lakeside Long Lunch calls the picturesque Sydney International Regatta Centre (SIRC) home.
You’ll be travelling to ‘Gate A, Old Castlereigh Rd, Castlereigh 2749’ to land at the Lakeside Long Lunch. 
  • Shuttle
  • Ride Share
  • Taxi
  • Parking
In 2020, we’ve partnered with Busways once again to bring you shuttle buses too and from Penrith Trains Station (Thornton Estate Side), and Penrith Panthers League’s Club. Stay tuned for timetable and announcements to come! 
Remember to respect your bus driver on our transport provider. Terms and Condition apply, with a zero tolerance policy in play from the moment you mount out bus transport.

We’re pairing up with ride share providers such as Uber and Ola. Look for the beacon when targeting the ’Gate A, Old Castlereigh Rd, Castlereigh 2749' or 'Sydney International Regatta Centre’ to secure the correct drop off point.

Ask your driver to send you to the ’Gate A, Old Castlereigh Rd, Castlereigh 2749' or 'Sydney International Regatta Centre’ - signage will direct them to the appropriate drop off point.
Onsite parking is a plenty here at the SIRC - with pricing starting at $20 per car.


No, Lakeside Long Lunch is a fully licensed event. We’re confident you’ll find something hand selected for you on site.

Our team has been busy curating the finest in local and international cuisines. Let’s leave the food prep to the experts!

Lakeside Long Lunch is an all weather event – rain, hail or shine the show must go on. We’ve co-ordinated a strong all weather plan to ensure all safety issues are mitigated pre-event.

Unfortunately not – we work really hard to provide enough shade and seating for everyone

Unfortunately this is an 18+, human only festival. As much as we’d love to have your Rugrats and Pups, this is a fully licenced event. We want to ensure everyone at Lakeside has the best time possible.

Yourself, your ticket and a can do attitude. We advise you bring adequate protection from the sun (we’re known to have some stinkers our west) and bring a picnic rug to sit on. Everything else is covered here at Lakeside.

Lakeside Long Lunch runs from 12pm – 8pm on the 2nd of May 2020. Bars will begin closing at 5pm with the final bar closing at 5.30pm. No entry permitted after 5pm.

We do not provide refunds for any tickets you may have purchased. You can review our full T’s and C’s here.

Lakeside provides compete disabled access to all areas of the site.

As people of the people, we do not discriminate. Beer, wine, cider and spirits will be available throughout the day. Oh and if you’re off the sauce there will be plenty of water and soft drink to purchase.

You’ll be able to sign up for our great activations like Pinot & Picasso and Helicopter Rides at the Information Desk on site – like all good things, it’s first in best dressed. No pre bookings will be taken at this stage.

Entertainment line up will be posted on both the ticketing page via Eventbrite, the website and the Facebook Event listing when it’s completely confirmed!

COVID-19 Announcement

At the direction of NSW Health, we must sadly confirm that the Lakeside Long Lunch 2020 will be rescheduled due to the widespread outbreak of COVID-19. Though this is an extremely tough decision to make – we take the health and safety of our guests, staff, vendors and artists extremely seriously.

The Lakeside Long Lunch 2020 will now take place on the 3rd of October and promise the same great entertainment, great food and wine and the same great day out down by the lakes at the Sydney International Regatta Centre. We can also happily confirm, we’ve locked in Sneaky Sound System and Thirsty Merc to join Shannon Noll, Voli K, Suite Az and Top Shelf to consolidate the Lakeside Long Lunch entertainment line-up for this year.

All purchases for the May 2nd date will be honoured for the rescheduled October date – with purchasers notified by Monday the 23rd of March on how to obtain a refund if required.

We encourage everyone to follow the direction of NSW Health and Local Health Officials while urging you all to continue to support local businesses through these increasingly uncertain times.

Thank you for your patience and continued support – we look forward to having a vino and a boogie at Lakeside 2020 when it rolls around on October 3rd’
