Top choice australian in Wollongong

Heavily influenced by seasonal produce and bush tucker, this lauded restaurant serves gourmet fare such as barramundi, duck with Illawarra plums, and occasional eyebrow-raisers (crocodile ham, anyone?). There's a separate degustation for vegetarians and vegans, which is easily as inventive as the meat-eater menu.

There's a three-course menu ($85) available from Tuesday to Thursday.
