While the weather is still warm, why not get a group together and book an alfresco dining experience. Australia has so many beautiful cafes, restaurants and pubs available, and summer is the best time to get out and enjoy them.

If in Melbourne head to Fatto for home-made Italian food and great views of the Yarra River. Fatto also has an all-weather outdoor dining area, so it doesn't matter what the weather of the hour is, you will still be comfortable.

It's an icon for a reason, the Coogee Pavilion rooftop in Sydney has stunning views and great food and drink. It's the ultimate in Alfresco dining, and the menu is reasonably priced as well.

For an evening Alfresco dinner in  Brisbane, head to Madam Wu Asian Fusion restaurant. Stunning views over the river and the sparkling lights of the city below will have you mesmerized. It's the perfect place to go for a girl’s night out or a romantic evening with someone you love.

With panoramic views across Canberra, the Howling Moon in Braddon is a must. Be sure to book a table for sunset to enjoy a cocktail and spectacular views.

In Adelaide, our pick is a good old fashioned beer garden and pub grub at the Edinburgh hotel in Mitcham.

And last but not least Perth, check out The Shorehouse, book a table on the 'Deck' and enjoy great food and atmosphere whilst gazing out over the Indian ocean.
