Tasting Australia 2021 – Not to Be Missed!


The programme for one of Australia’s best loved and most successful international festivals has been launched for 2021 and the spectacular food and beverage showcase has something for everyone.

Australia’s Favourite Food and Beverage Festival

With borders opening up right around the country, it’s an exciting time when we can start looking forward to safely attending big events once again. And it’s just been announced that Australia’s favourite celebration of eating and drinking – TASTING AUSTRALIA – will be returning to South Australia in 2021. Mark your diaries from 30 April – 9 May!

Best of the Best

The Festival State has a stellar reputation across the country for the way it does food and beverage. Spectacularly. It boasts magnificent wine regions and a legion of restaurants and cafes offering the highest quality home grown fresh produce. Not to mention a myriad of craft beers, cocktail and gin bars. It’s no wonder South Australia is so highly renowned for what it does best!

Wine pouring at Tasting Australia

The festival’s innovative offering will showcase the excellence of South Australian produce at over 140 events and all 11 regions. 

“With a focus on brilliant homegrown talent from Australia selected by our Food Curator Darren Robertson, we have created a program that truly celebrates everything we do so well in South Australia,” said Tasting Australia Director Simon Bryant. And he knows. Bryant is the Chef alongside gourmet supremo Maggie Beer from the celebrated TV show The Cook and the Chef.  “More than ever before”, he said, “the next Tasting Australia literally has something for everyone. From free events to family programming to events for craft beer enthusiasts – we have it all.”

Tasting Australia Airlines

You’ll be able to fly via Tasting Australia Airlines directly to two of South Australia’s most celebrated regions, Coffin Bay and Kangaroo Island.  No need to say, if you’ve never had a Coffin Bay Oyster you haven’t lived! So now you can either capitalise on what you already know and love about them, or make up for what you’ve been missing. As for Kangaroo Island, it’s one of Australia’s best loved holiday destinations. It’s also host to a blossoming wine region with a Cellar Door Trail. Famed chefs and passionate locals call Kangaroo Island home. It’s no wonder the island has a gourmet reputation as notable as its renowned wildlife.

Unique Offerings

South Australia’s seasonal produce is well worth celebrating. You can try it over a long Farm Gate Lunch at Yalumba, or a Flame Trees Feast with bio charring. Don’t worry, if you need to look that up. You’ll have the chance to learn more about it on the day! You might prefer to enjoy a Mexican inspired feast like you’ll never have experienced before, with a unique Cinco de Mayo Fiesta.  These are just some of the unique experiences on offer. And there’s so much more. The quality of produce and experiences are beyond anything you’ll have seen at any one festival anywhere else in the world. It’s no wonder people have been flying in to attend from Europe and the UK for years!
