Food in Australia

Traveling in Australia as a vegetarian can be a bit difficult, as some of the countries most popular foods include meat pies, beef and lamb. Barbequing is considered to be a national pastime. In larger towns and cities you’ll be able to find vegetarian options, and in popular tourist destinations such as Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, you’ll always find Vegetarian, Vegan restaurants, as well as Kosher and Halal foods.

Prices in Australia can be quite steep, but by buying and preparing your own food you will save a lot of money.

Don’t leave the country without trying the widely popular Vegemite; a dark brown paste made from yeast extract.
