Flavors of Melbourne Small-Group Food Walking Tours
Get an insight into the life of Indian-Australians on a food walking tour through central Melbourne or Dandenong, Melbourne's Little India neighborhood. From coconut milk and the seafood delicacies of Goa to the curries of Kahmir, Indian food varies from region to region, reflecting the people of the ethnically diverse subcontinent that now call Australia home.

Browse the aisles filled with all things glittery and get a true taste of India. Next, your progressive meal begins as you sample different regional dishes at three local Indian cafes and restaurants.
