Australia has well-earned bragging rights having produced brilliant actors like Cate Blanchett and Geoffrey Rush, and uniquely funky TV shows like Kath and Kim, but these 10 tasty treats are the real showstoppers. Today (January 26) marks Australia Day, the anniversary of the British arrival to Port Jackson, New South Wales, in 1788.
