Traveller’s with a huge sweet tooth, this one is for you. One of the most frequents treats tourists keep coming back for more is Australia’s finest gelato. Also, which sweet treat is better to curb a craving on a scorching hot summer day? A fairly expensive, yet worthwhile option if looking for gelato in the country is Daintree Ice Cream Company. They create unique flavoured desserts from locally grown fruit, and the flavour combination varies every time. For example, many recommend the Black Sapote or Wattleseed flavours. The Gold Coast also has excellent options when it comes to ice-cream. Zanette’s Gelato and My Gelato are praised for not only the excellent quality of their frozen treats but also super friendly staff. However, nothing comes as close as Frosty Mango who offer unique flavours such as mango; also known as the most beloved fruit of Queensland. 

2. Taste authentic Italian pizza

 Even though Italy is located quite far away from Australia. That does not mean that tourists and locals cannot indulge in a slice of two of this delicious treat. According to TripAdvisor, one of the very best pizza places in Sydney is Gigi Pizzeria. What sets them apart is the fact that they use quality ingredients from Campania regions. They even include vegan options on their menu. Another excellent option is Byron Bay’s Ill Buco. Which serves mouth-watering prosciutto Funghi pizza featuring authentic tomato paste and Bangalow sweet pork ham. If old school pizza is more of your liking, then Beagles Pizza serves slices featuring ingredients ranging from mushrooms, olives, prawns and even pineapple. 

3. Treat yourself to prawns

One of the most favourite seafood of Australians is prawns. The famous expression “shrimp on the barbie” exists for a good reason. Even though it is a more expensive food item on this list, prawns are extremely popular in the country mostly due to its accessibility. Also, whether they are barbecued, fried or boiled, prawns remain a truly symbolic delicacy reminiscent of coastal living. When in Sydney, definitely head to the fish market and get your hands on “schoolies”. These are organic, small estuarine prawns. If you do not want to go through the hassle of cooking them up yourself, then order some from any exquisite restaurant nearby.

 4. Sip on some wine

Every country has its finest bottles of wine, and the most delicious sorts in Australia definitely come from its largest wine-producing state, South Australia. South Australia is quite easy to find since it is located a short drive away from the city of Adelaide. If you want to go all-in and taste the most prestigious wine out there, then Penfold’s Grange offers some of the most iconic and best-reviewed wine in the area. Of course, the deluxe taste comes with a price (but it is absolutely worth it!). Foodies are advised to try out the famous Cabernet Sauvignon at Wynns Coonawarra Estate, which is not only rich and complex tasting on its own, but can be easily paired with other delicacies. An excellent souvenir idea is a bottle or two of private label wines, which may be totally customized and which come from one of the best South Australia’s wineries. Certainly, a better way to surprise a friend or a family member back home does not exist.

5. Booze it up

Fancying a night out with friends, or looking for a relaxing drink which will calm the nerves? One of the most favoured options in Australia when it comes to alcoholic beverages is Jagerbombs. These are flashy cocktails which combine alcohol with an energy drink, producing a glass of so-called liquid fun; try it out in Melbourne. However, if you prefer beer, then Tooheys is a perfect choice. Not only is it delicious but it is also really affordable. Other honourable mentions are Tamborine Mountain, Goon and Archie Rose. Archie Rose, in particular, is one of the most popular types of gin in Australia, which is best enjoyed in Sydney. It can be consumed straight by its own or mixed in order to create a delicious summer cocktail. Even though it is more on the expensive side, many prefer it over other varieties, because its flavour is truly out of this world.

In summary, Australia is definitely the place to go to enjoy not only the scenic views and beautiful beaches, but also some of the most delicious foods and drinks in the world. Remember to drink safe and have plenty of fun!
