While traveling in Australia you will learn that Australians have three main meals which vary from area to area. They are the traditional English meals and will be breakfast, lunch, and tea or dinner. Due to tradition and weather conditions, the Australian day starts early. For much of the year, much of the country has long hot days. So an early start allows the opportunity to get things done before the major heat of the day. The meal pattern is augmented with the traditional Australian morning and afternoon tea (the beverage not the meal) which is referred to as morning and afternoon smoko in some work settings. This would normally involve tea or another beverage and a snack. Fresh fruit is usually available and an ever increasing segment of the population is turning toward a more vegetarian based diet.
