Sweet Dreams Are Made of This: The Sydney Dessert Museum Pop-up is Almost Here

Sugar Republic, Sydney

Have you ever dreamed of leaping out of a giant birthday cake? Then this is the pop-up for you.

Fresh from sell-out seasons in Melbourne and Brisbane, Sugar Republic will take over the 6th floor of Myer George Street from 10 February for 12 weeks until 20 May.

The sweet digs include 12 sensory rooms that feature Instagram-friendly installations such as a wall of glowing neon art, a giant gumball machine you can stand in, a sherbet-filled rainbow bridge and house made of cookies.

New to the Sydney edition of the exhibition is a fantastical garden to tie in with the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory musical that recently opened at the Capitol Theatre.

Also onsite are a bubblegum-pink ball pit you can swim in, a swing surrounded by walls of fairy floss and the Wheel O’ Treats which is ready for you to spin (with prizes including lamingtons, bikkies and lollies).

The museum also pays homage to some of Australia’s favourite sweet treats and desserts including offerings from Arnott’s and Darrell Lea, Hubba Bubba, Wizz Fizz, Bubble O’Bills, Golden Gaytimes and the rainbow Paddlepop.

Swinging by on a Thursday or Friday night? Sugar Republic is holding 18 and over nights so the young at heart can explore the sweet space sans sticky fingers.

Sugar Republic is also returning to Melbourne in 2019 with fresh installations.

Our only word of caution? Prepare yourself for the inevitable sugar-high.
