A tour in Australia without a proper food and wine tasting would not be a complete travel experience. At A La Carte Australia Tours we strive to bring you the most typical foods and wines of Australia.
Modern cities like Melbourne have a very diverse restaurant scene, so you will have many different options when selecting a dining experience. From tender meat dishes to fresh vegetables, you are sure to find it all in this rapidly growing city. You will find all kinds of culinary delights that you might not have expected in Australia. There is nothing quite like sitting on a patio that overlooks the Yarra River and enjoying some authentic Australian cuisine that is cooked to perfection.
Your driver-guide assists you at all times and is also at-hand when you have breakfast, lunch or dinner so you can be properly informed about the curiosities and peculiarities of fine Australian cuisine.
No large group tour can offer you such a thorough and enjoyable approach to this authentic part of modern heritage of Australia.
Our suggested tour itineraries on this website include
lunches (quiche, soup, sandwich), so we can fully use
the daylight for sightseeing
- dinners in typical restaurants (upmarket establishments, but also typical cafés, most of them award-winning) and you choose freely three items off the menus
- best available local wine at dinner (half a bottle per person)
Of course, we will look after your specific requirements and diets. Just let us know what they are at the time of booking, and we will be delighted to adapt the tour to your specific personal needs.
Australian cuisine is a unique mix of traditional Aussie favourites and modern multicultural influences. Maybe you've heard of some Aussie classics, such as the lamington? How about vegemite? And we're all familiar with the famous Australian expression to "throw another prawn on the barbie". And while it's true that all of these foods are fair dinkum Aussie classics, these days Australian food and wine has taken on a more sophisticated style. Australian cuisine mixes the classic Aussie dishes with influences from European, south-east Asia and the Middle East.
