There’s no room in life for sub par burgers. If your local takeout shop isn’t cutting the mustard, you need to upgrade to a tastier establishment immediately. According to TripAdvisor’s customer review data, these are the best ten burger places in Australia. (Note: The following descriptions and photos may cause extreme taste-bud torture. You have been warned.)
The burger shops below have been crowned the tastiest in Australia by travel site TripAdvisor based on customer reviews. While this is by no means a fair or accurate ranking system, it’s safe to say that all of these restaurants will provide a very decent burger fix. As you can see from the list, Queensland appears to be the best location for burger lovers, with a whopping six slots taken up by the Sunshine State.
If you’re feeling peckish, head down to whichever one is closest and order a burger with the lot. (Or if you have some time up your sleeve, plan an odyssey across the country to try all ten!)
