Sample your way around our country’s finest culinary creations at the Good Food & Wine Show

Let’s be honest – tasting something delicious for the first time is up there with one of life’s greatest pleasures. The thrill of finding flavours that really resonate with you is pretty much unparalleled, which is what makes the Good Food & Wine Show the equivalent of Christmas morning for adults. Returning to the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from October 25–27, this culinary who’s who brings together a travelling road show of some of the best producers around the country for the pleasure of your tastebuds (and curiosity). more
