Australia Newbie- Best Food Ideas!

NicoleFriedman | Apr 2, 2007 07:20 AM

I will be going to Cairns, Australia for the first time this coming summer and I cannot wait!! I've already done a rudimentary search online- I've read the menu options for the Red Ochre Grille and realize that there are numerous fruits/veggies/nuts I am not familiar with down under.
I would love suggestions for either places to eat in Cairns (budget ideally- restaurant, cafe, hole in the wall or I'm hoping there are street markets) or suggestions for Australian foods to try in general. (I've already sampled vegemite- not to my taste buds yet but I'll give it another go!) For example, are there any exotic fruits that I need to try? Can you find those specialty breads with Australian ingredients in places other than Red Ochre Grille?

Thanks!
