Food & wine

Follow your appetite to the region that takes indulgence to another level, with wonderfully fresh seasonal fare and great wine celebrated in every town.

Foodie towns
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 Annie Smithers' Bistrot, 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.

Straight from the source
Delight in the pristine environment, fertile volcanic plains and clear mineral springs that provide the backdrop to your food and wine adventure. Fill your boot with produce so fresh it goes straight from the paddock to your plate.

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.

Whichever way you choose
Dress up or down, 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.
