5 Must-Try Aussie Foods


Barbecued Snags (Sausages)

Aussies love their barbie, and a good sausage makes it even better. Traditional Australian sausages are usually made up of beef or pork, but other types of meat also come into the mix sometimes. Put it in between buns and top it off with some fried shallots or your sauce of choice.


The National Trust of Queensland has voted this food as the National Cake of Australia, making it even more of an iconic Aussie dish. This chocolate dipped square-shaped sponge cake is named after Lord Lamington, who used to be a Governor of Queensland. It is covered in desiccated coconut and goes well with a cup of tea or coffee.


Aussies and Kiwi people have long claimed the invention of this beloved dessert. It was made to honour the visit of Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova to Australasia during the 1920s. Usually served after dinner, the crispy meringue-crusted pavlova is filled with some light fruit and topped with whipped cream.

Meat Pies

When speaking of the traditional Australian pie, there’s a standard to be followed. It must be palm-sized, mincemeat- and gravy-filled, as well as smothered in tomato sauce. If you want to level it up, you can always pair it with mashed potato and some mushy peas. The Land Down Under is pretty serious about their pies, as they even have the Great Aussie Pie Competition.

Vegemite on Toast

Like the British Marmite, this spread is a vegetarian alternative derived from yeast extract and not actual veggies. Fix yourself up this Aussie delicacy by toasting two slices of bread, spreading a hunk of butter on it and a bit of Vegemite. You don’t want to put too much of this vitamin B-filled treat, though, like how you would with peanut butter. They say it also helps in keeping mozzies away.
