UnDiscovered Foodie Gems
While many may not know Australia for its food—from quaint cafes to vibrant markets and fine dining options, the undiscovered Australia has it all. Among its bustling food scene is the vibrant Hasting Street in Noosa where you can get that quintessential beachfront dining experience. Whether it is a warm cuppa’ to go with comfort food in a laidback, quirky café, or an intimate dinner for two, you are in for a treat.
Caught the street food fever? Soak in the festival ambience and eat your way through Miami Marketta and the NightQuarter, as you savour your favourite tipple and enjoy live music. Otherwise, wine and dine like nobility at Margaret River’s mouth-watering array of restaurants. If you think you have discovered the real taste of Australia, think again.
UnDiscovered Night Spots
Hole-in-the-wall wine bars, hidden revolving walls, secret passwords—discover the best of Australia’s nightlife hidden in plain sight. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll be let into an ultra-exclusive world down under.
Push open a fridge door to enter Jungle Boy, one of Melbourne’s best tiki bars, or if you happen to be in Melbourne or Sydney, visit the retro Eau De Vie and enjoy cocktails chilled with liquid nitrogen served in a glass dome.
For live music, head over to Beergarden located within the iconic Surfers Paradise Tavern, overlooking breathtaking views of the ocean. Or be dazzled by lights when you visit Sydney in summer during the Vivid Sydney festival. Alternatively, head to Uluru to admire the stunning Field of light, which spans across approximately seven football fields, featuring 50,000 stems of lights. The installation by artist Bruce Munro will be on display until December 2020. If you think Australia goes to sleep at night, think again.
