Australia has cemented its reputation as a foodie hotspot, with some of the finest produce and innovative dining scenes around. But what makes Australian cuisine so unique?

Australia’s bountiful, fresh produce and rich ethnic diversity has created one of the most exciting and multicultural cuisines in the world.  Combine this with the friendly, down-to-earth nature Australians are known for and you have a unique dining experience based around enjoying tasty, creative and fresh food in an open and relaxed setting.

Just like in Malaysia, food is at the heart of Australian culture and you may be surprised to know that there are many culinary connections between our two nations. Iconic Malaysian dishes such as laksa, satay and mee goreng have become national favourites in Australia. In return, many restaurants and cafes with Australian influences are popping up across Malaysia. We are proud to partner with some of these outlets on this campaign. Come join us to discover what Australian food is all about, for the chance to win a grand prize of 2 x return economy flights from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Perth, Australia, courtesy of Malindo Air worth RM9,000.

Consolation prizes of health screening vouchers covering 32 pathology tests courtesy of Gribbles Pathology, worth RM72 each, will also be up for grabs.
