I am a keen traveller. Currently rediscovering my own backyard and the rest of Australia. I enjoy nature, history and the quirkiness of what the world has to offer.
Follow your nose
Come and celebrate durian, a fruit that has been banned on public transport and certain hotels in Southeast Asia due to its intense odour! No such ban exists at Queen Vic Market, where they are celebrating the durian over two days.
The durian is a large-sized fruit with a thorn-covered rind and a strong odour. If Alfred Russell Wallace, a 19th-century British naturalist was alive today, he would be attending the Durian Festival on Saturday 15 & Sunday 16 May, 9am - 4pm. Wallace described the durian's flesh as "a rich custard, highly flavoured with almonds."
Sheds K and L of Queen Vic Market will be hosting all things durian. Wander through the sheds and explore the food stalls celebrating the 'King of Fruit', the durian. Dancing and entertainment will add to the festive atmosphere.
So follow your nose and try this unusual fruit at sheds K and L at Queen Vic Market. For more information, click here.
