Australia Food & Wine Holidays

Food and wine holidays in Australia

Introduction

Enjoying fine cuisine is one of the many joys of travel and Australia is a food enthusiast’s dream destination. The country produces an enviable amount or fresh and varied produce, with the abundance of ingredients and array of cultural influences resulting in experimental ‘fusion’ flavours as well as the traditional fare.

The cosmopolitan cities of Melbourne and Sydney have always had a healthy rivalry over which has the best food offering. Melbourne sets the pace for breakfast, brimming with cool cafés serving award-winning coffee. Vying for your attention is Sydney, with its restaurant scene offering an excellent mix of fine dining experiences and casual bar side eateries, 

World-class wines

Australia has developed a global reputation for its award-winning wines. And many of its acclaimed wine regions are located a stone’s throw from capital cities. Sip on shiraz in South Australia’s Barossa sauvignon blanc in Western Australia’s Margaret River, or sémillon in the Hunter Valley. Regardless of which region you choose, you’ll be treated to delicious food and wine, inspiring art and culture, beautiful scenery and a variety of outdoor activities.

Fresh seafood

For endless amounts of fresh seafood, the island state of Tasmania is hard to beat. The region offers divine oysters, mussels, rock lobster, abalone, deep sea fish and more. However you’ll be spoilt for choice as you travel along the coast, with restaurants serving the ‘catch of the day’ – caught in local waters only hours earlier.

Food markets

All of the capital cities boast incredible food markets, however Salamanca Market in Tasmania, Adelaide Central Market and Darwin’s sunset Mindil Market are not to be missed. Local farmers markets are also popular, offering a varied assortment of fresh and seasonal produce from both land and sea.
