National Burger Day History

National Burger Day is a celebration that honours the hamburger. The observance is an opportunity to appreciate the flavour and versatility of burgers, which can be made with various proteins and toppings.

In Australia, the burger has undergone its own evolution to adapt to the country's eclectic taste preferences. Restaurants and consumers have developed their own Aussie burger recipes, which often incorporate ingredients such as beetroot, pineapple, and fried eggs. National Burger Day is an opportunity for Australians to celebrate their culinary heritage by trying new recipes and sampling different restaurant offerings.

Restaurants, food trucks, and fast food establishments often offer discounts, limited edition burgers, and social media promotions to celebrate. While the date of National Burger Day tends to vary worldwide, it is observed on May 28th in Australia.
