Culinary Adventures in Australia: A Taste of the Best Food and Drink Experiences for Travellers

BLOG | Discover why Australia is the perfect destination for epicurious travellers.

Australia has come a long way in the culinary world from “throwing a shrimp on the barbie”, to now offering a myriad of authentic and high-quality food and beverage experiences that deliver diverse cuisines, unexpected flavours and memorable moments.  

Australia wide travellers are able to participate in a range of culinary experiences: from paddock to plate, cooking schools, meet the maker, market tours, indigenous hunter and gather excursions or dining at world-class restaurants.  

The whole country has something unique to offer, giving people the opportunity to immerse themselves in each destination to taste quality ingredients, meet the people who produce innovative flavours and take in the incredible landscapes that set the backdrop for unforgettable culinary experiences.     

There are too many experiences to list, but below are a taste of some of the experiences The Tailor is able to combine into a fully customised itinerary for you: 

Truffle Hunting

In the Australian winter months (running approximately from June to September) you may want to join a Truffle hunt, seeking out these amazing delicacies.

If seafood is your fancy, hunt and gather some of Australia’s best seafood on the Eyre Peninsula – forage for oysters and cockles, cast a line and catch the big fighting Australian Salmon and enjoy a beach BBQ or embark on a Seafood Seduction outside of Hobart where you can taste oysters, rock lobster, abalone and even sea urchin straight from the fresh waters of Tasmania.

Even within our urban surrounds tours are available to get a taste of the diverse range of amazing local produce on offer. Take an Adelaide Central Market Tour, or a tour of the famous Sydney Fish Markets to feel the buzz of the freshest daily produce being purchased by consumers and restaurateurs alike.

  • Dine at one of Australia’s best restaurants to experience world-class cuisine and unique flavours with unforgettable landscapes that match the incredible food and drinks.

Australia has a growing infatuation with boutique beverages, whether it be gaining a greater understanding of what makes a perfect coffee or craft beer, or you may like to go behind the scenes at one of Australia’s award winning Gin, Whisky or Rum distilleries, where you can taste, then make your own blend – with a sample to take home and enjoy of course.

  • Our wineries have also embraced the culinary tourism experience ranging from vertical tastings or sampling straight from the barrel, making your own blend, or chatting to the chief winemaker amongst the vines to gain an understanding of how the wine you are tasting came to be. 
  • Australia boasts a range of fantastic cooking schools including the Agrarian Kitchen in Tasmania where guests are able to select the in best season produce that has been grown on site, then cook it under the watchful eye of chef, Rodney Dunn. 
  • Australia has also developed a reputation for delivering amazing internationally recognised culinary festival events including Tasting Australia, Dark MOFO, Margaret River Gourmet Escape just to name a few. 

Good food and drinks are ingrained in Australian culture, and The Tailor would love to share with you that same passion and authentic culinary experiences.
