There’s a lot to digest when considering a trip to Melbourne during the city’s annual Food & Wine Festival. Bon vivants converge here for a concentration of events held over 10 days. Learn to infuse gin, make sushi and perfect homemade Italian sausage. Book tickets to the riot that is the World’s Longest Lunch, reserve a seat at an express power lunch and sit in on whisky and biodynamic wine tastings. Or throw caution into the wind on a mystery bar crawl.
And the list goes on. Each year brings with it a fresh lineup of activities, and one will be spoilt for choice regardless of how long or short one’s stay is.
