Discover the intense flavours of Australian olive oil 

Not to be outdone by our European counterparts, local producers are increasingly making a name for themselves in the world of flavoursome and organic olive oil in Australia. Modern Australian farms are bottling incredible organic olive oils, as well as experimenting with successful forays into infused olive oil. Blood orange and lemon infusions are created using traditional methods of crushing whole fruits with single-estate olives. The result is a zesty and bold olive oil that pairs beautifully with fresh seafood or with fresh bread as a simple starter course.
