Everyone knows a thing or two about the Land Down Under: wild and rugged, laid-back and friendly, polished, but always adventurous. In reality, Australia defies every expectation, bursting with wildlife, imbued with a proud Aboriginal heritage, and surrounded with the bluest of waters where hide one of our planet’s greatest natural wonders. It might take awhile to get there, but it’ll take a lifetime to ever forget it.

What to eat

Australian cuisine: a mix of seafood, native ingredients from the bush, and Asian influences! Try wild foods like lemon myrtle, Kakadu plum, and wattleseed, meats like lamb and beef, anything served at a barbeque, and hearty pub food or fine dining in the many world-class restaurants across Sydney or Melbourne.

What to bring back

Coffee from coffee-obsessed Melbourne, Australian wine or craft beers, Vegemite, an Akubra hat, a cricket bat (it’s the national sport!), Aboriginal arts and crafts, or give a little back by looking into local initiatives or wildlife tours created to help restore the land after the bush fires of 2019-2020.

Fun Fact

We all know how absolutely adorable kangaroos and koalas are, but here are a few more wild species to look out for in Australia: wombats, echidnas (like a spiky anteater), quokkas (known as the world’s happiest animal!), Tasmanian devils, the laughing kookaburra, the world’s smallest penguin, and many more on land, at sea, or across the sky.
