• The World's 50 Best Restaurants

Tourism Australia

Official Host Country Partner to The World's 50 Best Restaurants 2017

With unspoilt landscapes from coast to coast, Australia is home to some of the world's most interesting and innovative restaurants, serving an exciting array of fresh produce and native ingredients that you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

Australia’s food and wine scene is powered by a diversity of both climate and cultural background. Chefs, winemakers and producers revel in the creativity of a land where almost any ingredient can be grown fresh year round. The country embraces its rich history of multiculturalism and proximity to Asia, alongside unique Indigenous ingredients and native produce, creating an inspiring, energetic cuisine that celebrates the local, but captures international attention.

Sophisticated yet unpretentious, Australian dining brings out the relaxed and welcoming way of life that its people are best known for. While the wine regions, considered deep in roots and vigorous in growth, are producing wines with as much personality and passion as their makers, staying playfully true to the regional characteristics of their origins.

Combined with a superb climate, Australian flavours are best enjoyed outdoors in the fresh open air. From a cold craft beer overlooking a pristine beach, to a plate of sashimi caught fresh that morning, served in an elegantly buzzing city harbourside restaurant, Australia’s dining experiences are always served against a backdrop of stunning natural beauty.
