Embracing community spirit during unprecedented times

Now more than ever it is important to embrace community spirit and support the wonderful hospitality scene during its time of need. We want to use our platform to spread awareness of some of the great initiatives happening locally and further afield, realising that the more support and collaboration we can encourage as an industry, the stronger everyone will come out of this together.

The show will go on (in spring)!

We are excited to announce that Tasting Australia presented by RAA Travel will be held from 9 - 18 OCTOBER 2020. We’re so grateful for the support you’ve shown since our announcement that the 2020 festival will be postponed. Safety remains our top priority; we know that when Tasting Australia returns it will deliver more of the deliciously unique experiences you love.
