Where are some famous Australian foodie getaways?

Tasmania’s King Island is a foodie’s heaven, home of the famous King Island Dairy selection of creams, cheeses and yoghurts, with its fromagerie open for tastings 6 days a week. With fresh seafood, beef and an excellent bakery to boot, you may have to relax for a few days on the beach before you can manage to get up and venture on.

For a gourmet getaway on the mainland, it’s hard to pass up a trip to the Barossa Valley or McLaren Vale for great food and a vast selection of wines.
