Australian street food has such a large variety that it can cater to every foodie out there. If you’re keen to dive into Australia’s gastronomic scene, roam the streets and check out this list of street foods that every Aussie should try.

Chiko Roll

The Chiko roll is a fried snack filled with various vegetables such as cabbage, carrot, celery and barley, as well as beef and rice. It has been called Australia’s national snack food. This takeaway treat can be found at most Aussie sporting events, like Australian rules football and cricket matches.

Barramundi Fish and Chips

Barramundi is a saltwater fish which is only found in Australia and South East Asia. It has a delicate flavour and is often eaten fried as fish and chips, or grilled with salad. If you like seafood, barramundi is well worth trying.

Meat Pie

The meat pie is an iconic Australian snack which can be purchased anywhere in the country. There are also some dedicated gourmet pie shops where you can find more unusual varieties such as chicken tikka masala or steak, bacon and Guinness pies. All types of meat pie are best eaten hot with tomato sauce or ketchup on top!

Sausage Rolls

Sausage rolls are another street food that are popular in Australia. They are made of puff pastry filled with sausage and vegetables like carrot, peas, corn, or other vegetables that Australians like to put in their sausage rolls. We love our sausage rolls so much we even created a national day for it! It is called National Sausage Roll Day and it is every 5th of June!

Hot Dogs

Let’s be real, hot dogs are awesome. But if you think they can only be topped with mustard, ketchup and sauerkraut, think again – because we’ve taken this simple snack to a whole new level. Our hot dogs are made from juicy beef patties covered in caramelized onions and served on fresh hot dog rolls. If that’s not enough to get your mouth watering, we don’t know what is!


Another popular snack on the beach, this seafood delight is fresh, perfectly seasoned and deep-fried until it’s golden and crispy. For the ultimate lunchtime treat, grab a calamari burger with chips from your nearest street food vendor. You can thank us later!

These 6 delicious foods are not only a great way to our culture, but also make for delicious snacks for you to try. All of these foods are easy to find, so the next time you get a craving for something tasty, start with one of these foods!
