Australia's Top 100 Restaurants were revealed in the Australian Financial Review on Tuesday, which named Melbourne restaurant Attica as the nation's best.
Victorian restaurant Brae took out second place, while Sydney restaurant Sepia was named as Australia's third best restaurant.
Australia's top chefs gathered in Sydney on Monday evening, to attend the ceremony at The Star.
Editor-in-chief of The Australian Financial Review Michael Stuchbury said the awards help put Australia's food scene on the world map.
"The Australian Financial Review Top 100 awards have reverberated not just around Australia but around the world because it puts them (the restaurants) on the map for all the world coming to Australia wanting to have fine dining, the best Australia can produce," Stuchbury noted.
Political commentator and host of the awards Annabel Crabb told Xinhua that the Australian food industry was hugely important in bringing Chinese tourists to the country.
"Australia is massively well known and justifiably so for our fresh produce and the incredibly culinary range that we have here, not just in Sydney but all around Australia," Crabb said.
She said one of the interesting things particularly as far as Asian cuisines goes is that Australia has an incredible range of Asian cuisines.
Australian celebrity chef Kylie Kwong said Chinese tourists are attracted to Australia's dining scene because of the country's fresh produce.
"Having been to China many times myself I think one of the greatest draw cards would be the quality of the fresh produce," Kwong said.
"Being Chinese myself I imagine being a mainland Chinese person and coming to Sydney Fish Market for example would be an amazing experience and opportunity, all that variety and so fresh!"
