Tasting Australia program takes flight

8 December, 2023

Australia’s premier food and beverage festival, Tasting Australia presented by RAA Travel, has just released its program for 2024 – with tickets on sale now.

The new program features more than 150 events planned across South Australia over 10 delicious days. It includes a reimagined Town Square, Tasting Australia Airlines trips to the Eyre Peninsula and the Limestone Coast and a drinks program jampacked with special bottles and one-of-a-kind tastings.

RAA Chief Executive Officer Nick Reade said the RAA Travel Lounge would also be back for members to enjoy.

“At RAA Travel we’re always spruiking the best parts of South Australia and Tasting Australia is one of those world class events that brings together the best of our food and wine sector,” Mr Reade said.

“The very popular RAA Lounge will be back bigger and better this year, offering a welcoming spot for RAA members to hang out and enjoy the Town Square.”

International chefs Asma Khan (UK), Claudette Zepeda (US) and James Henry (France) feature in the festival’s next iteration, alongside a national and local lineup including Matt Moran, Julia Busuttil Nishimura, Justin James and Poh Ling Yeow.

SA Premier Peter Malinauskas said Tasting Australia played an important role in the state’s visitor economy.

“South Australia is recognised globally for our abundant produce and acclaimed producers and Tasting Australia champions these so well,” said Premier Malinauskas.

“The 2024 program is filled with culinary experiences unique to the state and I look forward to welcoming visitors to enjoy once in a lifetime experiences across Adelaide and regional South Australia.”

Festival Director Karena Armstrong said she is excited for audiences to experience what’s new for the event in 2024.

“The 2024 is all about fun! We want eventgoers to leave not only with full bellies but with full hearts and lifelong memories,” said Ms Armstrong.

“From a Pasta Party in Town Square, the new hands-on MAKE sessions or intimate drinks tastings at the Tasting Table series, there is something for everyone to get involved with right across the state.”
