Taste Great Southern

April is already bursting at the seams with activities but we’re most excited for Taste Great Southern, a festival that celebrates the amazing food, wine, people and attractions in our very own South West. The 11-day festival is held from Perth all the way down to Esperance with more than 30 drool-worthy culinary events not to be missed. Think long lunches, degustations, community markets and tonnes of free events. There will be guest chefs left, right and centre including Adam Liaw, Anna Gare, Paul Iskov and Guy Jeffryes (just to name a few).

We get that it’s a bit difficult to get to all the events and spend so many hours on the road, so we’ve found the perfect four-day getaway to enjoy the best of these scrumptious offerings—Taste Great Southern Express

The unmissable package offers four days of all-inclusive accommodation, transport and killer events. It includes transport from Perth to Albany, three nights accommodation at Albany’s Quality Apartments Banksia Gardens with breakfast every morning, and transfers to three killer events; Wish You Were Beer, Albany Wine and Food Festival, and Light it Up Feast. Praise the foodie lords.

Now let’s get to the exciting details of these awesome events. Wish You Were Beer is on Friday 5 April and will be hosted onboard convict ship Brig Amity with plenty of seafood, shanties and brews. On the Saturday you’ll be attending Albany Wine and Food Festival where you can enjoy a wine seminar, watch a cooking demo, be inspired by guest chefs, and enjoy some local produce and delicious tapas. Finally, on Sunday 7 April you’ll attend the stunning Light It Up Feast—experiencing the beautiful Field Of Light while enjoying some delicious tapas from Adam Liaw and Paul Iskov.

Could there be a better weekend?
