You may try some of the famous Australian flavors like Anzac biscuit, Damper Cake, Lamingtons (square-shaped sponge cake coated with a layer of chocolate icing and desiccated coconut), Iced VoVo biscuit or Vegemite (a paste made from yeast extract, similarly to the British Marmite) or some freshly prepared authentic Australian meals.

As Australia was a collection of British colonies, so the culinary tastes are strongly influenced by the Commonwealth traditions, British and Irish characteristics mixed with the indigenous ‘Bushfood’ (Aboriginal food), so the meals are prepared from a wide selection of beef and lamb to the kangaroo or even crocodile meat.
