Many fine wines can be discovered on a trip to Australia

Enjoy world-class food and wine in Australia

A tantalising combination of fresh, innovative and mouth-watering flavours, glorious sunshine, outstanding natural beauty and al fresco dining makes Australia the perfect choice for an indulgent gourmet food and wine break. From savouring fresh seafood from Sydney’s Fish Market to visiting vineyards in the beautiful Hunter Valley, Australia offers a plethora of culinary experience. An added bonus is that most vineyards are within easy reach of the major cities so you can combine a trip to Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney or Perth with a rural gastronomic adventure.

DialAFlight can tailor-make a food and wine holiday to suit you – or why not keep reading for some truly tasty ideas?

Kick back and relax at Spicers Tamerind in Brisbane

Visit Brisbane before heading north and wake up to the gentle sounds of the rainforest at Spicers Tamarind, a luxurious retreat nestled in the serene Sunshine Coast hinterland. Join expert chefs at the Tamarind Cookery School, relax with a picnic next to Gardners Falls or explore the quaint village of Maleny – renowned for its delicious local cheeses and exclusive artisan wines.

Enjoy the beauty of the Yarra Valley with a hot air balloon ride

The Yarra Valley, on Melbourne’s doorstep, has an enviable reputation as one of the world's great food and wine regions and a wonderful range of vineyards. Enjoy vintage cool-climate wines from vineyards around Healesville, uncover the secrets of Domaine Chandon’s ‘méthode traditionnelle’ and sample its famous sparkling wines. Don’t forget to take a ride on Australia’s oldest steam railway, ‘Puffing Billy’.

 

Relax in the beautiful surroundings of Spicers Vineyard

Combine a few days in Sydney with a visit to Hunter Valley in New South Wales. The area is one of Australia’s best-known wine regions and home to over 150 wineries – it’s a must for budding oenophiles! Stay in the heart of the wine region at Spicers Vineyards Estate, situated on a private vineyard in Pokolbin with breathtaking views of the Brokenback Mountains. Taste local cheeses and olive oils on a gourmet tour or relax in the charming Restaurant Botanica and feast on an impressive seasonal menu with favourites including hoisin-smoked lamb and pan-fried kingfish.

 

Margaret River Wine... best enjoyed with friends

Western Australia’s wineries are recognised as some of the best in the world and the Margaret River region certainly has its fair share. Experience the freedom of the open road on a self-drive tour from Perth visiting world-class wine estates, national parks and pretty towns en route. We recommend a visit to the first vineyard to be established in the Margaret River region, Vasse Felix. Linger over a premium wine while enjoying an art exhibition or concert at the vineyard’s excellent restaurant complete with panoramic vine and forest views.
