On this culinary and cultural adventure, discover how Melbourne’s culinary history and multi-cultural society has created such a buzzing and vibrant food scene as you explore its foodie haunts, hidden eateries and an authentic street food market.

Your experience will begin in the heart of the city, where you’ll fuel up with the best Italian espresso around before exploring Chinatown, stopping to taste delicate dim sum dumplings and traditional Chinese egg tarts from a beloved local eatery. In this diverse pocket of the city, you’ll also find plenty of Greek eateries, so stop and try some traditional baklava dripping in honey.

Visit the famous Spring Street Grocer, a spot that’s heaven for any foodie! With gourmet goodies and fresh produce, not forgetting the subterranean cheese cellar and gelato from their legendary Gelateria Primavera. 

Get lost in the city’s famous laneways and arcades, where hole-in-the-wall eateries are squeezed alongside standing espresso bars or Japanese izakaya, noodles are being handmade in the window or you might stumble across a specialist cheese shop. 

Then make your way to South Melbourne, where you’ll be able to wander through the market, stopping to taste produce, buy treats to take home with you and indulge in some tasty global street food which your local will recommend. Less well known than other famous food markets in the city, the market is a community hub and foodie’s playground which shows off the diversity of Melbourne’s food scene all under one roof.
