Food & Wine of Australia

(9 Days - Departs Daily on a Private Basis)

Melbourne & Yarra Valley, Barossa Valley, Adelaide & McLaren Vale, Sydney & Hunter Valley

This private gourmet adventure includes Australia's premier wine regions, insider visits to specialty food purveyors, market visits, superb dining, and tours of locations offering the freshest and most creative cuisine in Australia.

Begin in lively Melbourne, widely considered to be Australia’s cultural and gastronomic capital. Enjoy private touring of the city’s highlights, including the chic South Yarra neighborhood, the Queen Victoria Market, and seeing landmarks such as the Victorian Arts Centre, the Melbourne Cricket Club, Federation Square, and the beautiful Fitzroy Gardens. One day, enjoy a private excursion to the beautiful Yarra Valley to sample some of the region’s best wines and specialty foods. Also enjoy reservations at some of the city’s top restaurants, where chefs showcase native ingredients such as wattleseed, finger lime and lilly pilly.

Next, fly to the city of Adelaide, known for its gardens, heritage architecture, antiques shops and acclaimed restaurants. From there, travel into the nearby Barossa Valley—perhaps Australia’s premier wine region—to visit small wineries, sample local cheeses and stroll through historic towns. Also, visit the equally beautiful although less-known McLaren Vale wine region.

Continue to Sydney, Australia's most beautiful city. One day, enjoy a private food-focused tour of the city, and explore its excellent markets and vibrant neighborhoods with a local insider. Another day, take a private excursion to the Hunter Valley to visit its wineries, as well as historic towns known for their artisanal foods, antiques shops, and local arts and crafts. Alternatively, opt to continue touring Sydney’s museums, gardens, Aboriginal art galleries, craft markets, beaches and other city highlights.
