In just under two weeks, the organisers of Victorian Restaurants Unite – restaurant consultant Erez Gordon and head chef Alistair Dobbs – have achieved an extraordinary feat by bringing together 18 restaurants, 25 suppliers and 28 individual staff who have all chosen to give to the Queensland Flood Relief Fund by donating their restaurant takings on Australia Day or by supplying their produce or labour at no or reduced cost.

So forget the Australia Day barbecue; here’s the list of the 18 restaurants or cafes that you can eat at on Australia Day, and by doing so enjoy good food and contribute to the Flood Relief Fund.
