Tasty tours and classes

A delicious way to experience Sydney and beyond is on food and wine tours. Discover gourmet delights, flavours from around the world, vibrant neighbourhoods and fresh produce. 

Explore bustling Chinatown, vibrant Cabramatta and other flavoursome areas with Taste Cultural Food Tours, Mia Cucina Food Tours, Gourmet Safaris and I Ate My Way Through. Ultimately Sydney combines gourmet tours with iconic attractions and hidden gems. 

Beer lovers can rejoice, too. Dave’s Brewery Tours, Dave’s Pub Walks and Ales and Tales are great fun, combining craft beer, hearty meals and fascinating stories. Sydney is close to the acclaimed Hunter Valley wine region and tours depart from Sydney, such as Wine Country Tours and Hunter Valley Wine Tasting Tours.

The self-drive Hawkesbury Farm Gate Trail is ideal for a day tour from Sydney, or as a stepping stone to the Orange, Cowra and Mudgee wine regions. Pick your own fruit at some farms along the way and stop in at Canoelands Orchard for Hive Honey Tours and scrumptious seasonal produce.

Cooking schools offer short classes on everything from seafood and making your own pasta to classical French, the perfect pizza, baking and tempering chocolate. Sydney Seafood School at the Sydney Fish Markets, in Pyrmont, invites leading chefs to share their secrets in weekend classes.
