Eat It: Sydney is seafood heaven (remember, they'll "throw another shrimp on the barbie" for you), including the famous Moreton Bay "bugs" -- flathead or bay lobsters, rather like a large crayfish. Mohr Fish is a local favorite for seafood, with a cafe atmosphere. You'll also find an amazing variety of tropical fruits and a tempting array of ethnic Asian eats Down Under. Or go exotic and try kangaroo, emu or crocodile. High-end diners won't be disappointed with choices like Quay, Est, Oscillate Wildly and Sepia.

Experience It: The Sydney Seafood School, housed right in the Sydney Fish Market, has classes that will teach you all about seafood, as well as ethnic cuisine. Gourmet Safaris offers an array of food tours around various Sydney neighborhoods, focused on different ethnic cuisines from Lebanese to French.
