Ideas for an Australia Themed Party

If there are three things Australians like, I'd put money on them being ouside living, sport, and food & drink. So when the Socceroos are playing, it's the perfect excuse to invite some mates round for a barbecue, thus combining all three activities in one event!

Food for an Australia Themed Party

Australian cooking is a good reflection of Australia as a whole - it's fun, it's fresh, it's unpretentious. It's full of fresh outdoors ingredients and great natural flavours. And it draws from cultural influences that reflect the origins of many of Australia's inhabitants - Europe and South East Asia. As a result, Aussies were cooking what has become "trendy fusion food" years before it became fashionable in Europe.

Try some of these next time the Socceroos are playing:

Drink for an Australian Party

Australian beer and wine are appreciated and available almost everywhere these days, and are usually the perfect accompaniement to a barbecue.

For beers, it's generally the lager-type, served ice-cold. Fosters is an obvious choice.

DrinkSupermarket.com have an excellent selection of Australian wines which can be ordered online for your Aussie football party.
