Visit the Wine and Food Regions of Australia
Where to enjoy Australian regional cuisine and restaurants
Where There's Wine, There's Good Food
Like all the world's great wine making destinations, Australia follows the adage that where there's wine there is sure to be good food. Journey through any of Australia's wine regions and you'll always find plenty of good things to eat, both in restaurants and cafes and at farm gates and provedores.
In fact, if you see grapevines in the landscape you can rest assured that somewhere close by people will be doing interesting things with a wide variety of food, from raising saltbush lambs and hand making cheese to growing olives and baking sourdough bread. And world-class chefs will be turning them into exciting creations, worthy of the restaurants of France, Spain and the Napa.
Australian produce is in great demand around the world for its clean and green credentials and the skill and care of its local artisan producers. So why not try it here? One of the great privileges of touring through Australia's wine and food regions is being able to discover and taste all this sought after food at its source, where it's freshest. And you can pat yourself on the back, too, for your environmental awareness, buying food that hasn't been freighted round the world, is grown and produced to the highest standards on earth, and which supports local producers and our rural way of life.
Whether you are after just-shucked briny oysters, hormone-free beef, organic stone fruit, creamy hand made goat's curd, fresh and salt water fish or wild and exotic mushrooms, there will be a region of Australia that comes up with the goods. And you can explore them all here.
