Tasting Australia by Train: Melbourne to Adelaide


From $795.00
Let’s take the train!

This is no routine journey. Instead it promises a new style of culinary adventure led by three of the world’s most accomplished chefs. Asma Khan, Cheong Liew OAM and Jae Bang will be aboard as The Ghan’s dining and bar carriages are coupled to The Overland and make their debut passage from Melbourne to Adelaide. Tasting Australia is now on rail.

Settle in for a 10-hour day trip replete with curated experiences. Remarkable food and beverages are assured, but this mode of travel also offers its own kind of romance – conviviality and the meditation of passing landscapes.

Indian cuisine remains a muse to Khan, recognised as an unstoppable force in global hospitality. She began cooking as an Oxford student longing for the taste of home; today her Darjeeling Express restaurant in central London is among the city’s most celebrated.

Liew specialised in fusion cuisine well before it hit the mainstream. A true culinary pioneer, he is best known for a legendary stint at The Grange at the Hilton Adelaide.

Korean-born Bang leads the kitchen at Freyja in Melbourne. Its Nordic approach to Australian dining melds time-honoured technique with new culinary possibilities, shaping dishes touted as future classics.

Only Tasting Australia can offer this dream collaboration – a new frontier for the festival, and one celebrating travel at its most transformative.
