Taste of Melbourne operates on its own currency called Crowns. Crowns are required to purchase signature dishes from the restaurants, drinks from bars and products from exhibitors. Crowns can be purchased online when booking your tickets or at one of the many Crown Banks throughout the venue.
1 Crown = 1 Dollar
30 Crowns are included with Premium and VIP Tickets. Additional booklets of 30 or 50 Crowns can be purchased in advance through Ticketek or on the day at the Taste Banks located around the event.
Restaurant dishes are priced between 6 – 12 Crowns. Servings are tapas sized – enough for you to try more than a few dishes and for chefs to show off their skills!
