WINE, dine and recline, it's all about relaxation at Rockhampton River Festival's Bar Ramundi Boardwalk next month.

Exclusively for the over 18s, the Bar Ramundi Boardwalk will be the place to be seen with a series of events designed to tempt the tastebuds and those with a penchant for elegance.

The festival kicks off in style with the Fitzroy Sampler on Friday, July 10, with a feast of gourmet selections, Tastes of Fitzroy, for $40 a person.

Local produce takes centre stage to a backdrop of your favourite drinks, live music and fireworks.

The following afternoon, Rockhampton's famous Delizie's High Tea will grace the boardwalk from 2pm with all the class and sophistication of the elegant ladies of the bygone era. Tickets are $65 each.

Later in the evening, from 6pm til late is the ultimate place to be seen.

Dress to impress in black and white, under the stars with a selection of tapas and gourmet bites at the Boardwalk Croc-tail Party.

With specially crafted cocktails like Strawberry Cyclone, Ginger Beer Barrage, Salty Croc and the delectably named Fitzroy Muddy, it's one event not to miss.
