WIN tasty new book from Lonely Planet

A new book from Lonely Planet celebrates the ingenuity and passion of Australia's best food and wine regions.


Out now, Gourmet Trails Australia & New Zealand serves up 40 culinary weekends available for gourmands across both countries.



"This book showcases why Australia is considered such a heavyweight on the global gourmet scene," said Lonely Planet.


"With an abundance of hip restaurants, food markets, craft-beer breweries, micro-distilleries, vineyards, coffee roasters, cheese makers and culinary specialists, you don't have to go any further than our own backyard to experience world-class produce."


Contributing author Chris Zeiher joked that this may have been the best job he’d ever done for the publisher.


"We collectively ate and drank our way around Australia to come up with these amazing weekend itineraries in some of our countries prettiest spots," he said. 


"Part of the joy of Gourmet Trails Australia and New Zealand is that we're able to introduce you to the minds behind these businesses, but also create these easy-to-follow itineraries to enable travellers to discover these places themselves and indulge in the same delicious experiences we had.”

"This is a celebration of Australia's culinary ingenuity and, with domestic border restrictions starting to relax, now is the perfect time for travellers to experience it," added Zeiher. 


"Whether it's savouring fresh seafood while taking in the Instagramable views of the South Australian coastline, to carb-loading at a brilliant bakehouse on the Gold Coast to being introduced to the intensity of a Tasmanian whisky there's something for all tastes in this tome."
