Foodie heaven: Eat your way around Australia

For foodies, Australia is one of the world’s most diverse nations. This vast antipodean island is so large that it manages to produce pretty much everything on its own soil – whether it’s prime steak from the cattle ranches of Queensland, creamy, pumpkin-sized avocados from Western Australia (there is even an Australian Avocado Association!), chocolate from the Daintree Estate in Queensland or rich, Arabica coffee, grown on the far north coast of New South Wales – which has won awards in Europe since the 1880’s!

Coffee beans

There is a treasure trove of goodness to be enjoyed within every state, and it’s often easy to forget you are on holiday in Australia when you’re tucking into delicious, authentic sushi or devouring a fresh Greek salad! In Sydney in NSW, the Asian and Italian influence is strong, whereas Melbourne in Victoria is said to have the biggest Greek population outside of Greece! However, go up north to the small tropical cities of Rockhampton and Townsville, and you’ll experience typical all-Aussie delights such as fish and chips Oz-style. This comprises langoustine, white fish, skate, mussels and a host of other fishy delights, battered and deep fried with chips – delish and actually better than the Brit version. Especially when enjoyed with a sea view and a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.

Kangaroo boxing

And what about the traditional Aussie barbeque? Well, there are certain meats you just wouldn’t be able to encounter in the UK such as lean and very healthy kangaroo, which tastes a little like venison. It’s cheap as chips and can be found at all supermarkets in mince, steak and kebab form, so you can make your own burgers or just flip a steak straight on the charcoal. Ostrich also features on the Australian menu and in supermarkets and is another plentiful, ethical and healthy meat to choose.

Australian vineyard

Of course, no Australian feast would be complete without a drink to accompany it, and this is what the land down under is famous for. From fresh mango juice to beer and amazing wines, Australia offers some of the best beverages in the world. Maybe it’s the heat, the sunshine or the laid back Australian attitude, but there really is nothing better than enjoying a cold one as the sun sets on another long, languid, lovely Australian day.

Beach picnic

Right now, until 30 June DialAFlight has huge discounts on flights and packages to Sydney and Brisbane – offering savings up to £500! So as the slogan says; Where the hell are ya?!
