Event description

Description

Australia’s first interactive food experience is coming to Melbourne.

This delicious pop-up museum is dedicated to the celebration of desserts, candy and all things sweet through twelve amazing sensory experiences.

Climb a candy rainbow, relax in a bubble gum scented bubble bath under fairy floss clouds and take a sip from a chocolate river. Dance inside a giant gumball machine, step inside the world’s smallest fridge and explore Australia’s most iconic treats as you taste your way through multiple interactive spaces.

In collaboration with local artists and food creatives, Sugar Republic is located in Melbourne’s old MacRobertson’s confectionery factory (birthplace of the Cherry Ripe and Freddo) for a limited season.

It’s this Winter’s ‘must see’ exhibition for anyone who ever hit a sugar high, slammed a Tim Tam or jumped for joy at the sound of a Mr. Whippy van.

Grab your sugar-lovin’ friends, bring your camera and make it a date!
