5 to Try - Food and Wine Experiences

At the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival we love to get out and experience it all - and you can too. Jump aboard a steam-train on the Victorian Goldfields Railway, enjoy a lunch date in the clouds or experience all corners of the globe without leaving Melbourne.
