Melbourne foodies take note, the Taste of Melbourne festival returns this September. Taking place at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton from Thursday 15th to Sunday 18th of September, Taste of Melbourne brings together award winning chefs and the very best Melbourne restaurants under one roof.
Many more award winning Melbourne restaurants are expected to participate in various special events during the four day food and wine festival. The full listing will be revealed to the public very soon, so keep your eye on the Taste of Melbourne website for the very latest updates.
If any of the events at the Taste of Melbourne festival are of interest, it is worth looking at the just released early bird tickets, which are now on sale through Ticketek agencies and online at a discounted price. Currently there are a range of tickets on offer from Standard Entry (priced at $30) to VIP (priced at $100).
Please note that once you are inside the venue, the accepted 'currency' is crowns. $1 equals 1 crown and sample tasting dishes are priced from 8 to 12 crowns. Crowns can be purchased at various stations within the venue. You can also pre-purchase crowns with your ticket; for example the Premium ticket option includes entry and 30 crowns to use at the event for $55.
