Long before Uber Eats opened its first service in Melbourne, in 2007 there was a food delivery service called Menulog. It’s an Australian based company which was only one year old since it just opened in Sydney in 2006.

According to Wikipedia, the company has over 10,000 restaurant partners across Australia. Almost every type of food you can find at Menulog, from famous franchise restaurants such as McDonald’s and Pizza Hut to local restaurants in Melbourne suburban that offer more than one hundred types of cuisine.

In Australia, Menulog is almost available in every city around the country. However, in several smaller cities and suburbs, only a few restaurants support delivery by Menulog’s couriers, most restaurants use their own couriers to deliver their food.

That is why Menulog does not open registration for new delivery partners or couriers in several cities even though you can order food there.

Menulog is indeed available in most cities and suburbs around Australia, however, most of them only support in-restaurant pickup or use restaurant special courier. From the information we got from a delivery partner, there are only a few cities around Australia that are listed in the Menulog Courier registration page at the moment.

These are some of the cities that currently accept new Menulog driver registrations: New South Wales (Sydney and Newcastle), Victoria (Melbourne and Bendigo), Queensland (Brisbane and Gold Coast), South Australia (Adelaide), Western Australia (Perth) and ACT (Canberra).
