Finest Dining Experiences in Australia
One of the best ways to experience a country is through food and Australia is no exception to that. However, the dining experience is pushed to the next level with so many restaurants stepping up to provide unique experiences that you can’t find anywhere else. From dining under the stars to the middle of the ocean and into the skies. Dining is no longer just about what is on your plate, but it is also a multisensory experience that can last a lifetime.
See how food has turned Australia into a culinary paradise that hosts larger-than-life experiences for the ones who truly revel in the luxuries of life. Here are some of our favourite dining experiences in Australia.
Longitude 131° – Dine Under The Outback Stars
Located just outside the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park lies a lodge that transforms outdoor dining into a planetarium. Being far from any artificial light and the bustling city allows the natural light of the stars to take over and illuminate the skies. Not only will you have a front-row seat to the expanse of the universe, but you will also be tasting some of the finest culinary offerings. This four-course dining experience uses local bush ingredients and traditional Indigenous techniques to create a unique taste of Australia.
Vue De Monde – A Feast on The 55th Floor
Taking fine dining to the next level, this restaurant is spearheaded by executive chef, Hugh Allen, recipient of the coveted 2015 Gault Millau Young Chef of the Year Award at the age of 18. He brings to Vue De Monde refinement and ingenuity in the use of unique techniques and traditional ingredients. Although the restaurant has been serving patrons for over 20 years, its location on the 55th floor of the iconic Rialto building has only been since 2011. The focus of this restaurant is to present an exciting and dynamic experience with progressions of flavours and a sense of curiosity.
Candlelight Dinner Cruise – Sunset Dining in a Gorge
Nitmiluk Gorge invites you to explore the wonders of this natural landscape and feast on an extravagant sunset dinner experience. As you sit back, relax and enjoy the seemingly changing landscape as the sun sets into the horizon, you will be transported into the spiritual world of the aboriginal people of Australia. The tour will include a three-course candlelight dinner, prepared right in front of you and a complimentary glass of wine. Unwind into the night as the stars guide your way back to land.

This gourmet experience delights with McLaren’s finest wines, southern bluefin from Port Lincoln, Coffin Bay oysters and crustaceans from Streaky Bay. Beyond the food, incredible experiences like swimming with sharks and picnicking with penguins will keep you entertained through the journey.
