Adelaide’s Longest Lunch was formed to showcase our wonderful region, by bringing together our amazing producers, restaurants, wineries and businesses, whilst celebrating South Australia as an iconic location.
We are so fortunate in SA to be able to tap into our wonderful regions, and what a great way to celebrate this by having one long table spanning the entire length of the Riverbank Footbridge — based right in the heart of the Adelaide CBD! Adelaide’s Longest Lunch was the brainchild of Kristen Greber and Rilka Warbanoff whom, over a bottle of Red wine, decided that we needed to activate Spring and to celebrate our wonderful state by bringing together corporate Adelaide.
All of this is being done with raising much needed funds for LOCAL charities front of mind. Visit our website.
