Overview

Food & wine

Follow your appetite, stimulate the senses and reconnect with the land in a region that takes the concept of paddock to plate dining to another level. Sample gourmet dishes created with wonderfully fresh seasonal fare, fill your basket at local farmgates and markets, and celebrate the region's myriad wine offerings at cellar doors, local eateries and hatted restaurants.

A sense of purpose

Journey to Daylesford, where the enduring presence of the Lake House has ensured a long legacy as the gourmet heart of the region. The nearby townships of Kyneton, Trentham, Hepburn Springs, and Woodend are snapping at its heels, with Kazuki's, Source Dining, Royal George Hotel, Mr Carsisi, Colliban Foodstore, Du Fermier, The Cosmopolitan, and Maloa House Gourmet Delights all worth a reservation.

You'll even be rewarded with top food when you visit smaller towns like Clunes, Malmsbury and Gisborne.

Farm gates, provedores and markets

Delight in the pristine environment, fertile volcanic plains and clear mineral springs that provide the backdrop to your food and wine adventure. Check out the local farmers' markets and provedores to find local chutneys, cheeses, jams and other gourmet goodies. Load up the boot with organic fruit and vegetables, free-range eggs and high quality local meats.

Be sure to follow signs down country lanes to small but internationally recognised family vineyards for a glass, bottle, or case of world-beating wines.

Dress up, dress down

Frock up or go casual, go for starched linen tablecloths or formica tables, graze by the open fire of a country pub, cook your own farm produce, or dine out in a 'hatted' restaurant for a memorable food and wine experience.
