Dining

Inspired Cuisine — Every Day of Your Trip
Whether you’re dining on gourmet fare in your hotel’s restaurant; enjoying the flavors and cultural exchange of a home-hosted meal of local items; or indulging in a buffet overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, and international favorites, mealtime is an experience to be savored. All meals give you a varied, authentic experience that reflects the essence of your destination.

Dining in Australia and New Zealand. Breakfasts are all served buffet style with international menu options. Included lunches and dinners vary between set menu gourmet meals and buffet offerings. Meals in Australia and New Zealand are very similar to Western food with meat dishes predominantly served, including the possibility of some exotic options like kangaroo and crocodile. Although many meals are included in your journey, you will have opportunities to go out on your own and sample the cuisine in local restaurants.

Special Meals. Special meals are also featured during your journey, including a Welcome Dinner and a Farewell Dinner. Your Adventure Leader can recommend specialty dishes that you may want to try when dining on your own at the hotel or a local restaurant.

Home-hosted Visits Give You a Taste of Local Life
Wherever you travel, one of the best ways to connect with local people is to share a meal, snack, or coffee — with a side of conversation. Whether you’re having tea in a family home, sharing a farmhouse lunch, or attending a community-hosted meal, there's nothing more personal (or fun!) than bonding over food, getting to know each other, and exchanging ideas about life in your respective countries. In fact, most of our travelers report that their home-hosted experience was a highlight of their journey. While you are in Auckland, you will be the guest of a local family at their home for dinner, which will include some tasty Kiwi specialties!

Healthy Choices at Every Meal
Along with local fare, you’ll also find some choices for the health-conscious. We are happy to accommodate any special dietary requests you may have, such as low-salt, low-fat, gluten-free, vegetarian, diabetic, and lactose-intolerant, provided your requests are received at the time of booking. Please be aware that in Australia, you will not always find the variety of special diet options that you would in the US.
