We've known it for years, but a recent study has revealed that Australia is really making a name for itself as a gastronomic destination. Recent research by Booking.com reveals Melbourne and Sydney serve up high placings on the global list of Food Destinations around the world.
Ranking the gastronomic hotspots around the world, the study found Asian and South American flavours feature highly in the top ten foodie favourite destinations with Greece, Australia and Spain also included. Topping the list is Hong Kong, with its famous dim sum, Sao Paulo with Brazilian barbecue and Tokyo, whose restaurants have accrued more Michelin stars than New York and Paris. For Australia, Melbourne comes in sixth place (ahead of Florence) and Sydney sits at 17th (ahead of Rome).
