Melbourne Foodie Culture
Melbourne is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, experiencing many waves of migration from all over the globe. The diversity of our communities has contributed to an ever-evolving melting pot of history, food and culture.
Victorians come from more than 200 countries, speak 260 languages and dialects and follow 135 religious faiths. We begin our trail at the Immigration Museum. Hear the stories of arrivals from all over the world, their challenges, their triumphs and their food.
