Food & Drink

Due to our multicultural society, we’ve had exposure to the exotic flavours and delights of other countries, giving us the choice of cuisines from around the world. Our cities and towns are filled with the tastes of Italy, China, Greece, Japan, India, the Middle East and more.

 

We are also a prime farming country that produces high quality plant foods, meat, poultry, seafood and dairy, as well as traditional bush food like yams, plums, herbs and grubs. Local produce has the potential to not only be more delicious but also more nutritious due to the natural and organic way the plants and animals are grown.

 

We’re so excited to taste the delights of what our country has to offer, and we hope to incorporate lots of local produce into our camp cooking adventures.
