Local produce

Known as Victoria's food bowl, the Murray River region is fresh food country. The enviable combination of rich soils, sunny Mediterranean climate, and Murray River water for irrigation ensure there is an endless supply of fruit and vegetables, gourmet cheeses, nuts and excellent fresh water fish.

Trail bound
With three food and wine trails cross-crossing the region, it's now easier than ever to find your way. Choose from 40 wineries, restaurants and pubs along the Echuca Moama Food and Wine Trail, delve into the past while feasting on local delights on the Backroads Trail, or grab a Farm Gate Trail brochure from the local visitor information centre and hit the road.

Farm and river fresh
Indulge in a huge range of fruit, especially citrus fruit and grapes, vegetables, olives and nuts at roadside stalls, farmers' markets or local cafes. Take advantage of the Murray River's abundant fresh water fish, including the famed Murray cod. Fill your basket for the journey home or stay longer and sample fresh local produce cooked up in inventive ways at renowned restaurants, wineries and country cafes.

Top towns
Linger a while in Mildura and savour slow food and high quality produce. Stefano's food store, 27 Deakin, is a good starting point where you can order a picnic hamper filled with the best regional produce. Travel south to Swan Hill, the centre of Australia's stone fruit industry and be sure to look out for farm gates along the Murray Valley Highway to stock up on nectarines, peaches, pistachios, almonds and olives.
