Celebrate Melbourne's cultural diversity on a small-group walking food tour exploring the flavors of India, Turkey or Africa. Melbourne is a melting pot that is home to some of Australia's largest migrant communities. Discover how these cultures, through their food, have helped make Melbourne the cultural capital of Australia. There are three food tours to choose from: stroll through central Melbourne's Indian Quarter or Dandenong, Melbourne's “Little India”; taste the flavors of Turkey on a stroll through the streets of Brunswick, or enjoy soul food, African cuisine, in the suburb of Footscray. Each tour includes a progressive meal at three cafes or restaurants.
