The wine story

Australia is one of the world’s outstanding wine-producing countries. Some of the world’s oldest vines can be found here. Large and small, traditional and boutique – our wineries offer a range of different experiences. Australia has more than 60 wine regions each with its own personality and signature variety. Walk into almost any cellar door, from the Margaret River region to Tasmania’s Huon Valley, from the Mornington Peninsula to the Hunter or Barossa Valley, and you are likely to find yourself talking directly to the winemaker, who are often second or third generation vignerons.

Our wines display the diversity of the early migrants whose skills influenced the industry. Most of Australia’s wineries are within easy reach of the major cities. Many offer behind-the-scenes tours, quality restaurants and wine appreciation classes to enrich your experience. Visit during harvest season and smell, touch and taste each vintage as it comes off the vine.

Food in Australia

Australian cuisine refers to the cuisine of Australia and its indigenous and colonial societies. Indigenous Australians have occupied the lands of Australia for some 40,000–60,000 years, during which time they developed a unique hunter gatherer diet, known as “bush tucker”, drawn from regional Australia flora and fauna—such as the kangaroo. Australia was, from 1788 to 1900, a collection of British colonies in which culinary tastes were strongly influenced by British and Irish traditions – and agricultural products such as beef cattle, sheep and wheat became staples in the national diet.

Modern Australian cuisines have been heavily influenced by its Asian neighbours, particularly Indian cuisine from South Asia, Chinese and Japanese cuisine from East Asia, and Thai and Vietnamese cuisine from South-East Asia.
