From May 12 until May 19, we will once again by celebrating Australian Bacon Week. We urge you to join us by organising a car rental Sydney Airport wide and indulging in some (or all) of these bacon-related activities.

Cook it

If you’re staying in self-catering accommodation, you could try putting together your own bacon-inspired meal. Australian Bacon Week will see butchers and supermarkets around Sydney promoting the delicious crispy treat.

We like the sound of this bacon-wrapped asparagus recipe. It’s super easy to prepare – all you need is asparagus, pepper and, of course, our good friend bacon.

If you want to show your respect for bacon by not eating it, why not check out the works of Francis Bacon at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney? Bacon was a figurative painter who was born in Ireland in 1909. He is best known for his “Three Studies for Figures at the Base of a Crucifixion” painting, which was completed in 1944.

Read it

Or, you can take a car trip to one of the nine public libraries dotted around Sydney and pick up a book by (a different) Francis Bacon. He was a sixteenth-century English philosopher, and is renowned for such treatises as Novum Organum and the History of Life and Death.

Whatever you do this week, make sure you do it with bacon.
