Each year, the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre becomes a culinary, boozy wonderland for three jam-packed days, aka the Good Food and Wine Show. An alley dedicated to cheese, wine almost as far as the eye can see, an array of food and beverage stalls serving up samples — yep, it's a reality.

In 2024, the event hits the city from Friday, October 25–Sunday, October 27. If you've been before, you'll be eager to head along again. Basically, it's the Ekka of food and wine, just without the rides, dodgems and goldfish.

Each year's Brisbane Good Food and Wine Show notches up big numbers; think: 250 producers, 600-plus wines to taste and more than 60 types of cheese this year. It also dedicates a whole section to a section dedicated to small Australia producers, too, so you can share some love with homegrown outfits.

Big-name culinary stars make appearances, complete with workshops and masterclasses. Some cost extra; however if you're just keen to wander and enjoy samples, don't worry — that's all included in the regular admission.

A word from the wise: you'll be eating and drinking all day, but do make sure you have a light breakfast beforehand. Lining the stomach is always a good idea, and you'll thank us later.
