The Best Cafés in Australia

The Best Cafés in Australia

Australians have become so obsessed with coffee that it’s hard to remember Australia was once a nation of committed tea drinkers. And while tea has hardly been relegated to the sidelines – there are tearooms and teashops in every capital city in the country – coffee is now the conversation. Where it’s from, how it’s roasted, who’s doing the roasting: these are issues of vital importance to discriminating coffee connoisseurs. Yet the café culture that has sprung up around this coffee bean obsession is about much more than a brew, with quality food an equally crucial ingredient in encouraging punters back. Here are some of the best cafés the country has to offer.

Best Restaurants for Uniquely Australian Food

Best Restaurants for Uniquely Australian Food

Some of the newest ingredients landing on plates at Australian restaurant tables are thousands of years old, as Australian chefs turn to their own backyard for inspiration. That backyard, mind you, stretches over 6.5 million square kilometres (2.5 million square miles), so they have a bit of ground to cover. As Australian Aboriginals have known for 40,000 years, this vast, dry country is home to countless wild, native plants, herbs, nuts, seeds and berries across the six climatic seasons recognised in Aboriginal culture. Visitors to Australia can now sample the results of this inspiration on tables that range from the finest restaurant in the land to an outback country pub. Here are just a few.

Fish and Chips in Australia

Fish and Chips in Australia

Whether your idea of a good meal includes tablecloths and attentive service at a fine dining restaurant, or a take-away package wrapped in newspaper from the local fish and chips shop, the star of the show is the same: Australia’s fresh and flavourful seafood. Our island nation has a well-deserved global reputation for fronting up some of the biggest, juiciest and tastiest seafood on the planet, with hundreds of native species to choose from at any given time of the year. As a result, many restaurants can literally supply the ‘catch of the day’ – fish caught in local waters only hours earlier – much to the delight of local and visiting ‘seafoodies’ alike!

Australia's quality fresh produce

Australia's quality fresh produce

Traditionally Australia has been known for its ability to produce a prodigious amount of grain, high-quality wheat and barley, and for its sheep and cattle exports. But that’s changing, as producers learn to take advantage of a number of comparative advantages that set Australia apart from much of the world. Firstly, with so many different climate zones from tropical to desert, from temperate to downright artic, there’s nothing Australia can’t grow or produce.

Foraging Australian-style

Foraging Australian-style

One of the greatest groundswells in global food trends – food foraging - is moving more into the mainstream as individuals are seeking connection with their food sources and chefs are taking up the cause of integrating more wild foods into the way we eat. Keen home cooks and culinary tourists can now sign up for seasonal tours – some city-based, some in the country – where experienced guides show where to find food growing wild and how to identify plants that are both safe and delicious to eat.

Explore Australia's Fresh Seafood Festivals

Including our beautiful islands, Australia lays claim to over 60,000km of diverse coastline – and with such easy access to the ocean, it’s hardly surprising that fresh seafood features on almost every modern Australian restaurant menu. Summer is the best time to eat seafood – when it’s fresh, in abundance, and requires little preparation – but you can find seasonal seafood on restaurant menus all year round. Our nation’s celebration of seafood manifests outside of restaurants at a range of family-friendly festivals across the country, too; here are some of the top seafood festivals you won’t want to miss.
