As of March 23, the government has ordered Australia’s pubs, restaurants and cafes to halt dine-in trade. Luckily, this doesn’t mean that you can’t indulge in a woodfired pizza or freshly baked sourdough bread. Plenty of food businesses are getting savvy with their offerings to ensure you can still enjoy your favourite dishes safely while, importantly, helping staff stay employed and the business stay afloat.
We’ve created this list of places that are open for takeaway and delivery so you can keep your two-minute noodles in the cupboard for a little longer and support local business when they need it the most.
Nothing beats good takeaway like fresh fish and chips. FishFace is open for takeaway with their all their daily specials still on offer.
