A 100 metre food stroll in Australia

Asian food was introduced to Australia during the gold rush of the 1800s, when Chinese prospectors yearned for the tastes of home. For many Chinese people, opening a restaurant became a more financially-attractive option than panning for gold. However, the real cultural food revolution came after World War II, when Australia opened the gates to European migration. Today, we’re quite blase about everything from ordering a pizza or eating garlic bread to selecting from the vast array of European foods at the supermarket deli.

The 1980s brought larger numbers of Asian migrants, and virtually every town and suburb now has a Chinese and a Thai restaurant. The ‘melting pot’ of nationalities in Australia has brought with it a dazzling wealth of cuisines.
