While Melbourne played host to The Worlds 50 Best Restaurants in April, it’s a fitting time to highlight the best food and wine experiences that the country has to offer. When it comes to breakfast Australia really shines, forget your standard bacon and eggs, the ‘brekkie’ dishes here are so inventive that you’ll want to eat them all day long. 

The Boathouse Balmoral, Sydney, New South Wales

It’s hard to decide what’s more appealing here… the artfully arranged fruit platters, coastal-themed coffees and perfectly poached eggs, or the stunning water views of Balmoral. Luckily, you get to have them both. 

Bread & Circus Wholefoods Canteen, Sydney, New South Wales 

At Bread & Circus Wholefoods Canteen the food comes beautifully served up on pastel-coloured plates, and even better, it’s actually good for you! 

The Kettle Black, Melbourne, Victoria 

Hotcakes with ricotta, blueberries, maple, double cream, seeds and nuts are best when paired with a top-notch coffee, which of course Melbourne is rather famous for. 

The Grounds of Alexandria, Sydney, New South Wales

An oasis tucked away in Sydney’s inner west, The Grounds is an extensive hub of locally harvested produce, organic gardens, farm animals, fresh flowers and baked goods. One thing is guaranteed here – the Instagram opportunities are endless! 

Signal Station Brasserie, Hobart, Tasmania 

This is eggs benedict done Tassie-style! Here this classic breakfast dish comes with delicious local salmon cured in beetroot, vodka and gin. Oh, and the panoramic views of Hobart, the Derwent River and O'Possum Bay are pretty special too! 

The Rabbit Hole Organic Tea Bar, Sydney, New South Wales

The brunch dishes at The Rabbit Hole are almost to pretty to eat – almost! Think coconut, pineapple and berry brunch bowls, and earl grey infused raspberry jam with pepe saya butter on sourdough.

Skypoint Observation Deck, Gold Coast, Queensland 

Who even knew that you could have breakfast at the highest point above the Gold Coast? Well, you can, and this is the EPIC view that you’re rewarded with. 

Bib & Tucker, Fremantle, Western Australia

Bib & Tucker's buttermilk pancakes with banana, salted caramel, pecans and Tasmanian double cream come served with a side of breathtaking views over the Indian Ocean. 

Celsius Coffee Co, Sydney, New South Wales

Perched on Kirribilli’s wharf, you can indulge in an inventive breakfast menu and excellent coffee whilst seemingly floating on water. Here, million dollar views accompany breakfast dishes such as chilli buttered eggs with house made onion jam.

White Elephant Café, Gnarabup, Western Australia

It’s hard to beat the feeling of an early morning swim or stand-up paddle boarding session in the ocean, followed by coffee and a hearty breakfast. At the White Elephant Café you don’t have to walk far from the sand for this experience – or even wear shoes for that matter!

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!

Contemporary Bush Tucker in Australian Restaurants

Native ingredients, are experiencing a revival. Embraced by the country’s leading chefs, they are transcending “bush tucker” status and being subtly integrated into contemporary restaurant menus. The shift has been especially noticeable in the past five years; it is part of the global trend to celebrate localism in food. The Australian chefs using indigenous ingredients most successfully are notable for their skill and restraint in incorporating them in dishes with flavours and techniques more usually associated with Europe or Asia. Such chefs are highlighting indigenous ingredients not just because they offer a point of difference, but because they taste so good.
