Bush Tucker in Outback Victoria
Heading off the beaten track? Victoria’s outback is home to a number of restaurants serving traditional Aussie bush tucker. Whether you’re looking for a pit stop on your adventure or you’re a local looking for a new stomping ground, there are plenty of delicious restaurants to choose from.
If you’re after something a little different to feed that ravenous appetite, look no further than Pepperleaf Bush Tucker. The restaurant serves a combination of Australian dishes including crocodile, emu, and wallaby. The meal sizes are large enough to keep you fuelled for a day of bush walking, four-wheel driving, or whatever else you have planned for your outback adventure. Grab a tapas meal and try a little of everything if you can’t make up your mind.
THE BLACK STUMP (Mildura)
Using traditional Australian foods and incorporating a mix of American and European inspired cooking methods, The Black Stump is a more sophisticated approach to bush tucker. All menu-items are made using locally sourced produce to ensure nothing but fresh tasting meals every time. Try the Cured Murray Cod, seasoned with inland herbs, or opt for a good ol’ steak and chips.
BENDIGO ORIGINAL PIE SHOP (Bendigo)
There are few foods considered to be more Australian than the humble meat pie. The Original Pie Shop opened in Bendigo in 1950 and still maintains the great Aussie flavours it served customers way back then. The friendly country service you’ll receive is likely to have you coming back for more. Grab a meat pie baked fresh that day and see what all the fuss is about.
TROUT & BUSH TUCKER FARM (Rhyll)
Not located in the outback, but still a good two hour drive from Melbourne’s city centre, Rhyll Trout & Bush Tucker Farm provides the means for you to experience authentic Aussie cuisine. Walk the bush tucker trail and pick your own fresh crops. How about catching your own fish and having the professional chefs cook it for you? You can always head straight to the Farmhouse Café for homely Australian foods, cakes, coffee and tea.
Seasons is a restaurant and bar which serves only the freshest meals using locally sourced foods from the Mildura region. The seasonal menu changes to suit so you’ll find something different to eat every time you visit. Grab a sharing plate and try a bit of everything or grab your own Australian seafood meal of prawns or fish. Dine in and takeaway options are available.
