My Foodie Detour

If you consider yourself a “foodie” expert, or even just a beginner, we have created unique experiences to showcase to you what defines Australian cuisine.

Given one of Sydney’s greatest assets is our food culture…

What ingredient would you ask your very own gelato chef to add to your creation? What drink would you expect to have the aromas of native Australian botanicals such as lemon myrtle and river mint? Do you want to push the button on the machine that will roast the coffee beans that you’ve personally selected for your next drink? These are just some of the highlights that may be explored with you on the day.

Crafted & designed by Richard Graham (Owner of My Detour) & Jeremy Church (Experience Guru), with a My Foodie Detour you have the choice of booking our ‘Ultimate Foodie Experience’, travelling in either our vintage or luxury vehicle offerings.

“We love that the doors we are opening are exclusive to guests of My Detour. Even better, these unique experiences will allow guests to take foodie bragging rights to a whole new dimension!”
~ Jeremy Church, Experience Guru
