Taste Tours celebrate a diverse Australia and are designed to build understanding across cultures through food. 

We recruit, train and employee amazing local people with stories to share and we only support independent family-run businesses. We operate tours in sometimes surprising locations that we know are full of high quality food businesses. These are places that are largely undiscovered by non-locals, and often receive unfair media reporting. We aim to break down stereotypes and share the untold stories of food and culture. 

You are supporting fantastic, vibrant local communities and businesses with every ticket you buy.

Food allergies, needs and


*All tours have a food alert. Please inform us beforehand of your needs, and where possible, we will organise alternative tastings for vegetarian, gluten free, no chilli and no pork, and many other common needs. 

We will note any food requirements that we are unable to cater for on a particular tour.
