There is a need to define and differentiate Australia's food and wine experiences. 3. Food and wine is a missing ingredient we can use to reignite people's passion for Australia and help overcome over-familiarity. 4. Branding for food and wine is largely being done by Outback Steakhouse, Yellowtail Wines and Fosters. 5. Insights

  • 16. There are three reasons why Australia offers food and wine experiences like nowhere else: Our produce – it’s as fresh and diverse as the unspoilt and varied land it comes from. Our people – we’re not bound by tradition, so there’s a freedom and creativity to our food and wine culture. Our place – it’s what we’re famous for. Whether you eat in the open air, or even in the big cities, you’ll find there are breathtaking backdrops to match.

Far from a place with very few culinary credentials, it’s a place where everywhere you go, amazing food and wine experiences await you. It’s yet another reason why ‘There’s nothing like Australia’.
