Welcome to the Jungle

A plant-based party for the people.

Welcome to Australia’s newest and wildest celebration of plants and plant-based eating. Lush plantings and florals and plants-plants-plants set the scene for a party that’s 100 per cent animal-free, right down to the drinks. See some of Melbourne's best restaurants like you've never seen them before, in a party that gives plant-based good times a rollicking reboot.

"It's not about deprivation," says Smith & Daughters' Shannon Martinez, "it's about debauchery."

It’s food plus gardens plus drinks plus live music - and all plants, all the time.

- Shannon Martinez, Smith & Daughters, Smith & Deli
- Jerry Mai, Annam and Pho Nom
- Fancy Hank's
- Joseph Abboud and Tom Sarafian, Bar Saracen and Rumi
- Matt Wilkinson, Crofter
