Welcome to the Jungle

Presented by Wanderlust

Welcome to the Jungle, presented by Wanderlust, is Australia’s wildest and freshest celebration of plant-based eating and drinking. Lush plantings and florals 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, with live music from local legends The Tarantinos, 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.

Featuring food by:
- Shannon Martinez, Smith & Daughters, Smith & Deli
- Fancy Hank's
- Rumi
- Barrio Snack Bar by The Entrée.Pinays (feat. Pecks Road and Boba Bar Melbourne)

With drinks by the tiki-rocking legends from The LuWow, a zero-alcohol bar from Dan Murphy’s, music by The Tarantinos, and more great food talent to come.
