The 15 best burgers in Australia, according to the Internet.

The only thing that’s better than a pub crawl? A burger crawl.

Time to whip out your elastic waistbands and head off on a cross country adventure. Because across Australia, a culinary experience unlike any other is waiting for you.

No, we’re not talking about an eight course degustation menu that will require you to mortgage you’re home. We’re talking about burgers.

And not just any burgers, but Australia’s best. Burgers that will not only leave you with a pair of greasy mitts and a well-earned food baby, but burgers that people across the country have flocked online to rave about.

Not only do they serve a mean burger, but they also have tater tots, crinkle cut fries and an insane list of milkshakes on offer. Peanut and Jelly shake, anyone?

5. Chur Burger, Brisbane and Sydney.

If you’re heading to Brisbane, there’s no going past Chur Burger. The brainchild of award-winning chef Warren Turnbull, Chur – which also boasts stores in Sydney – was born from a simple vision, Turnbull’s love of burgers.

8. Newy Burger Co, Newcastle.

There is one complaint that people seem to make about the Newy Burger Co, and that is that the burgers are too small.

They also know that there’s no such thing as too much cheese.

12. Grill’d, various locations.

Grill’d may be a chain which boasts restaurants across the country, but there’s no doubting that they do burgers well.

With an extensive menu and stores in every state and territory except the Northern Territory (sorry, Darwin), it’s not to see why Grill’d is so popular.

14. Burger Got Soul, Tasmania.

15. Rocket Burger and Fries, Melbourne.

Located on the corner of Elizabeth Street and Flinders Lane is Rocket Burger and Fries.

Of course, you can purchase your standard burger and chips. But if you’re feeling brave enough, you can attempt this. We’re not sure whether it comes with a health warning, but you can assume it’s not for the faint hearted.
