The city’s hallmark food festival is the perfect excuse to indulge
Each year the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival showcases the very best this delectable city has to offer. Culinary playgrounds will pop up across the CBD offering anything from sweet treats to French delicacies to fine drops from Victoria’s best wine producers. Safe to assume you’ll need to have your stretchy pants on hand for this one.
Wine and dine your way across the city with highlights including the River Graze, which sees a culinary playground set up along the Yarra Promenade, and Restaurant Express, a two course express lunch with matched beverages for just $40. Or for those looking to explore Victoria's regional highlights look out for the festival's regional long lunches. Each lunch serves a minimum of 100 guests and takes place in some of the state's loveliest locations – everywhere from beaches to vineyards.
