Gourmet Traveller has spent half a century traversing the country and uncovering the most outstanding food, wine, and restaurant experiences on offer. Gourmet Traveller has built its name in being an authority on the distinct culinary contexts found throughout Australia and now we want to share it with you. The Gourmet Traveller Gift Card is a bite-sized portion of Gourmet Traveller’s storied gourmet tradition, one you’re now invited to be a part of.
With a country as culturally rich and varied as ours, the Gourmet Traveller Gift Card helps you find your next great food experience: from exceptional fine dining with world-class views to that new eatery everyone’s talking about embedded in some vibrant inner-city suburb, the choice is yours to make.
It’s that world of choice that sets the Gourmet Traveller Gift Card apart. Whether it’s to thank a new client for that new contract going ahead, or a friend visiting Australia for the first time, the Gourmet Traveller Gift Card allows the giftee to follow their taste buds and create their own dining adventure. Simple to give and an absolute treat to receive, the Gourmet Traveller Gift Card is the perfect way to mark any occasion.

Our share plates are a circus of flavours. Each performs a more amazing trick than the last. And like the best pop groups of the ‘90s, it’s hit after hit. Whether you want just a little or a beast of a feast we’ve got your covered.
Quay is one of the country’s most celebrated restaurants; the creation of leading Australian restaurant group, Fink Group, and Executive Chef Peter Gilmore.
The reimagination of Quay has welcomed an organic space reflective of Peter Gilmore’s nature inspired cuisine. The interplay of textures and colour bring new life and a vibrance that embraces the restaurant’s place in the dress circle of Sydney Harbour. An ode to the Australian landscape, from the vast ocean floor, to the cracked bark of a paperbark tree, every detail from the ground up has been thoughtfully considered.
A new era for Quay, gives an opportunity to fulfil even greater aspirations in delivering a most personal and immersive dining experience.
