This is a personal memory of Australian food & cuisine and is not meant to be an official history.
My recollection of the food we ate when I was growing up is that it was pretty bland. It wasn’t really until the late 60’s and the 70’s that the food culture in Australia began to change. Australian food may have started out as rather uninspiring but as time has gone on, our taste has changed and matured. Now when it comes to food in Australia we’ve become adventurous, colourful, unique and even passionate!
