Designed as an essential navigational and rating accomplice, the Australian Good Food and Travel Guide has long been acknowledged as Australia’s most comprehensive restaurant, accommodation and travel authority encompassing not only all major metropolitan areas but many of the smaller townships that lie in between.
The Australian Good Food and Travel Guide boasts a long and colourful history. Founded in 1977, two years of comprehensive research and compilation saw the release of Australia’s first national restaurant, accommodation and travel guide in 1979. Originally inspired by the Michelin and Gault Millau guides of Europe, the earliest guides carried the title: ‘Guide Bonvoyage’
In response to market research, the name was changed in 1984 to the ‘Australian Good Food & Accommodation Guide’ and later again to the ‘Australian Good Food & Travel Guide’ (AGFG).
Throughout the decades pioneering principles and values have continued to set the standard establishing AGFG as Australia’s most respected rating authority.
