Tasting Australia is a journey of eating and drinking, following produce from paddock to plate and a celebration of real food heroes. 

The eight-day festival goes beyond consumption to uncover what South Australia’s food scene is all about: crusading local and seasonal produce; promoting its diverse culture, championing premium producers; indulging in a kaleidoscope of tastes and being treated to unforgettable experiences.

Since its inception in 1997, Tasting Australia has become one of Australia’s most anticipated culinary festivals. It celebrates a new milestone in 2016 when it becomes an annual event for the first time.

Food-lovers from across the globe descended on Adelaide and South Australia’s surrounding regions to experience Tasting Australia from Sunday 1 May to Sunday 8 May 2016.
