Here’s how to celebrate Macadamia Nut Day this weekend

Macadamia Nut Day

Macadamia Nut Day is on this Sunday, 4 September. Healthy and delicious, macadamias are an integral part of the Australian story and a product of which we can all be proud. #MacadamiaNutDay celebrates this, and more.

There are several activities happening across Australia this weekend, so get your tastebuds ready and get involved!

Three Blue Ducks limited edition macadamia palmier

Chef Darren Robertson and restaurant group Three Blue Ducks are releasing a limited edition Macadamia, Miso & Chocolate Palmier in celebration of Macadamia Nut Day this weekend. 

This nutty, chocolatey and slightly savoury flaky treat will pair perfectly with your morning coffee. Macadamias are baked throughout the palmier to showcase their buttery creaminess and little chunks are added for extra crunch.

The exclusive macadamia palmier will be available for purchase across the weekend of 3 & 4 September only from:

The Farm Byron Bay, 11 Ewingsdale Rd, Ewingsdale NSW

Three Blue Ducks Sydney, 1/85 Dunning Ave, Rosebery NSW
