A Taste Of Melbourne
Explore the best food city in Australia on a Melbourne food tour with a local expert to the mouth-watering fresh produce markets and artisan stores that put this city on the map.
We begin at the Queen Victoria Market, the jewel in the crown of this food-lovers city since opening in 1878. There is no better place to learn about Melbourne’s fascinating culinary history and modern multicultural society.
Visit the meat and seafood hall, explore the stunning deli hall and be guided through aisle after aisle of fresh, seasonal produce. Enjoy perfectly made coffee, delicious Greek dips, freshly opened oysters and warm-from-the-oven Turkish pastries.
We’ll go to the renowned Books for Cooks store, Melbourne’s best place to find new and old books about wine, food and the culinary arts.
A local tram will bring us to the center of Melbourne’s historical arcades precinct. Enjoy stunning handmade chocolates at the Ganache Chocolate Salon and visit the Gewürzhaus spice store to learn about native Australian ingredients. Plus, tastings of regional Victorian honey and nougat.
We will explore the food-filled precinct around Degraves Street and Centre Place. By the conclusion of this Melbourne food tour you will understand why this city is the undisputed culinary capital of Australia.
This event is held in Melbourne’s CBD and runs for approximately 3 hours. We recommend guests wear comfortable shoes and dress according to the weather.
Queen Victoria Market is open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Monday and Wednesday, we replace the market with tastings through Chinatown and the underground Cheese Room.
Congratulations on the tour as it hit all the right notes and we covered so much ground thanks to your expertise and knowledge. Great little tastings, up-to-date ‘goss’ on where chefs eat after working, hidden restaurant treasures and historical snippets all added up to a most informative tour.
Turn food shopping into an adventure and discover some of the hidden gourmet spots of Melbourne. Chef Allan Campion, co-author of The Foodies Guide to Melbourne, takes his ‘food-bible’ on the road, revealing his favourite haunts and divulging the latest in foodie news and views.
Had a great day at the Melbourne food tour with Allan Campion and the queen Victoria market. Alan was a great host and very knowledgeable.
I would highly recommend Melbourne Food Experiences – the tour was fun and informative, the food was delicious, and they catered for my dietary requirements.
For the last three Christmas parties, Allan and the crew of Melbourne Food Experiences have ensured that our tours of Melbourne’s culinary best were fun, informative and eye opening to the foodie wonder that is Melbourne. From quick bites in the most unusual and underexposed, to something a bit fancy, I can confidently come into the city with friends and family for some beautiful food and a darn good gin cocktail!
