Local produce

Tempt your tastebuds with a fine selection of local produce such as freshly caught seafood, gourmet cheeses and luscious hand-picked berries.

Gourmet cheeses
Sample delicious local cheeses from selected producers such as Apostle Whey, Timboon and Meredith cheeses. Pat the goats and learn about the process in the rustic farm environment at Drysdale Cheeses. Visit Cheeseworld just outside Warrnambool, or the Timboon Railway Shed Distillery to pick up local cheeses and other region produced fare.

Ocean catch
Visit the local fishing cooperatives beside the wharfs at Queenscliff and Portarlington on the Bellarine Peninsula or Apollo Bay and Port Campbell along the Great Ocean Road, Port Fairy and Portland and purchase fresh seafood from the daily catch.

Portarlington is the mussel farming capital of Australia and the home of the Portarlington Mussel Festival in January, so get your fill while you're in town. Pick up fresh mussels from Advance Mussel Supply and down at the Portarlington Pier on weekends.

Berries and tomatoes
Head inland and pick your own berries from farms near Colac, Gellibrand, Deans Marsh, Heywood and the Bellarine Peninsula. Some of the best berry-picking farms include Tuckerberry Hill, Wallington Strawberries, Gentle Annie Berry Gardens, Pennyroyal Raspberries and Shoebridge Blueberries but be sure to check for the best season.

Get your fill of cherry, truss, roma and round tomatoes at Lonsdale Tomato Farm on the Bellarine and stock up on lettuce and herbs while you're there.
