Tasting Australia is a celebration of eating and drinking. From long lunches held in special locations highlighting produce from the state’s best, to unique culinary experiences that leave you wanting more - Tasting Australia is sure to feed your curiosity.  

This year, one of the best ways to experience why Tasting Australia is so famous for informal excellence is at one of our delicious multi-course events. From a six-course Italian lunch to a 12-course Chinese feast, theris something to satisfy every taste.  

The only question left to ask yourself is - how many courses can you do?
