For travellers who seek the finest that the world has to offer

Why Sydney has fallen in love with this boutique bespoke picnic service

Graze & Gaze luxury picnic service will deliver sumptuous food and elegant decor so all you have to do is relax and enjoy the time with your friends. 

When the NSW government eased the Sydney lockdown rules to allow five friends to picnic, they created a booming industry. Luxury picnics were soon spread over the harbour foreshore, Sydney’s parks and reserves. Everyone is talking about “picnicking”. 

Graze and Gaze ups the ante on cheddar and crackers. The company delivers a bespoke, picnic service where guests simply turn up and enjoy each others’ company. Its beautifully laid tables, throws and cushions have caught the eye of many admiring (and slightly jealous) residents.

But the company isn’t just about indulgence. For every picnic laid out, Graze and Gaze donate 10 meals to OzHarvest. So dining al-fresco with your loved ones can actually do some good.
