Food and Wine – Gourmet luxury
The frequently touted cuisine title of ‘Modern Australian’ is more likely to include tastes of Asia, Europe and every corner of the world. Eating at our restaurants is part of the Australian experience – the melange of cuisines, the freshest produce and the modern, innovative and distinctly Australian way we serve it up.
Our chefs and restaurants are garnering international attention. They’re talented young guns producing cutting-edge food, with an emphasis on fresh seasonal and regional produce.
Gourmet retreats and fine restaurants are also springing up in regional areas across the country, in places like Mudgee, Orange, the Margaret River region, Mornington Peninsula, the Limestone Coast and the Queensland hinterland. Here you can take farm gate tours, follow farm trails or visit wineries. Try a tasting plate, take a food tour, or splash out at one of our five-star hotels, resorts and retreats where you can indulge in intimate gourmet experiences.
Our wine regions are producing fabulous wines and food. Take a private plane or helicopter to lunch in one of our wine valleys such as the Hunter, Yarra, Clare or Swan. There are endless perfect settings for outside dining, whether it’s dinner in the desert under the big, starry skies at Uluru or a feast of ocean catch on our shores.
Fantastic food accompanied by truly great wine is always on the menu in Australia. Now that the rest of the world has discovered the ‘Taste of Australia’ we have become a culinary destination par excellence. Be prepared to have your tastebuds enthralled on a gastronomic journey – join us in celebrating Australia’s evolving and exciting world of food and wine.
