The World's 50 Best Restaurants recently announced that its 2017 awards will take place in Melbourne, Australia, on April 5, as it has partnered with Tourism Australia to bring the series to the city's historic Royal Exhibition Building.

World-leading chefs, restaurateurs, sommeliers, media and opinion leaders will gather to celebrate the very best in global gastronomy. The overall event program, running from April 1 to 7, will showcase Australia’s outstanding food and wine culture to an international audience of industry professionals and food lovers.

Two restaurants in China made the global list in 2016: Hong Kong's Amber (No 20) and Shanghai's Ultraviolet (No 42).

John O'Sullivan, managing director with Tourism Australia, said in a news release that next year's awards and event program provide a natural extension to its Restaurant Australia campaign.

"Great culinary experiences are about people, produce and place," he said.

One of Australia's most internationally acclaimed gourmet celebrations, the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival, plans to align its dates with The World's Best 50 Restaurants 2017. That program of events, in its 25th year, will run from March 31 to April 9, including a master class series celebrating The World's 50 Best Restaurants on April 1 to 2.

Wine Australia will provide top wines throughout the program.
