Default Traditional grub?

Hello all,
In England it's Roast beef and yorkshire pud, (or curry now), in France its Frogs legs and snails, Spain Paella, BUT what is Oz traditional grub. It can't just be BBQ can it? I heard once of a floater which i think is just pie in gravy.
Tell me what i have to look forward to and try, that might be different but i don't mean a bush tucker trial.

Don't actually live there, so I'm probally no expert, but visited the family a few times and gotta say they are hot on fresh seafood! I am not a sea food lover and was pretty disgusted with what turned up on some plates! There is this 'thing' called a 'bug'!!! Apparantly it comes from the sea, but just looks like a small insect on steroids!!! They thought it was lovely, I felt like vomiting!!!

Yes!!!! That's what they were called! Moreton Bay Bugs!! We were at a RLS on the Gold Coast, there where about 12 of us, it was our farewell meal, the scenery was wonderful, the company was fantastic, the wine was scrumptious And suddenly.... some overgrown bugs appeared on the plate I had to take a photo, I must find it and download it, watch this space!

Pies, snags, roast chicken, chicken parma (and a pot). Not sure whether fish and chips count as that's also traditional Brit grub.

Chicken parmagiana (sp?) is a flattened chicken breast, breadcrumbed, deep fried and then topped with italian tomato sauce and melted cheese.

A recent tv ad here for a local hotel had huge parmgianas on offer - the size of a dinner plate for $5. Revolting.
