Event History

Our origins from 1997.

Since 1997, Tasting Australia has become one of Australia’s most anticipated culinary festivals.

Tasting Australia is a journey of South Australia’s produce from paddock to plate and a celebration of real food heroes including Maggie Beer (Barossa food legend and Tasting Australia patron), Jock Zonfrillo (Restaurant Orana owner and chef), Simon Bryant (local chef and television personality), international food identities and more. 

The week-long festival surpasses just eating and drinking 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 dining experiences. 

Food-lovers from across the globe will descend on Adelaide and South Australia’s surrounding regions to experience Tasting Australia from 5-14 April 2019. 

The event is owned and managed by the South Australian Tourism Commission through its major events arm, Events South Australia.
