Australia is increasingly being recognised as a top class culinary destination. The days of being known as a nation of primitive barbecues and beer lovers have long been replaced by an acknowledgement that Australia can boast some of the most sophisticated food and wine in the world, with the finest ingredients on its doorstep and an excellent restaurant and café culture in its cities.
Right now Dialaflight has some great deals on Australian food and wine walkabouts, giving you the opportunity to sample the very best that this remarkable country has to offer. Here is just a glimpse of what to expect from this foodie heaven destination.
Sydney and Melbourne, two cities so frequently compared to one another, can both boast exceptional restaurant and café scenes, and are great places to start any foodie tour of this part of Australia. Sydney is home to stunning restaurants like the world-renowned Marque, Quay and Tetsuya’s, while the likes of Attica and Vue de Monde in Melbourne can match anything Sydney has to offer.
Both cities also have a highly developed café culture, with Australia’s love of coffee giving birth to a raft of outstanding cafés and relaxed bistros, offering plenty of wonderful places to sample great coffee and local cuisine.
Sydney and Melbourne provide the perfect launch pad to explore the New South Wales region and discover the many gastronomic delights on offer outside of its two major cities. Dialaflight is currently offering 14 nights for the price of 11 on a magnificent tour of the region, taking in Sydney and Melbourne, with trips to the renowned Hunter Valley wine region and Mornington Peninsula in between.
These stunning destinations combine the very best of Australian food and wine. The trip includes a visit to Hunter Valley’s famous Spicers Vineyard Estate, while wonderful scenery and outstanding food awaits you on your final stop at the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.

You’ll begin your stay in Perth, Western Australia. This vibrant city has plenty of exceptional restaurants to check out, while you can take high tea at the heritage listed Terrace Hotel, where you’ll stay for three nights.
On the drive towards Adelaide you’ll take in the outstanding natural beauty and culinary delights of the Margaret River on the south-western tip of Australia, an area rich in boutique wineries and restaurants focusing on the very best of local produce.
Next stop is the famous Barossa Valley, maybe Australia’s best-known and most reputable wine region, giving you the chance to sample some of the greatest food and wine to be found in this country, or indeed anywhere.
