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.


  • Get expert advice. Melbourne’s barometer of what’s hot on the food and drink scene is Broadsheet, a website devoted to chronicling the city’s new openings and latest events. Before going, have a look to see what their picks are. They cast a discerning eye and seem to know what’s good before everyone else.
