Official site for Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
The diverse tastes and flavours of Melbourne's restaurants may be a foodie's heaven, but none of it could be possible without Victoria's rich regional bounty. Step away from the hustle and bustle of the city for a real food adventure punctuated by regional delicacies, country charm and warm hospitality.

Many municipalities offer weekly market days. Farmers gather to sell fresh produce picked that morning, along along with locally-produced meats and cheeses. Popular markets include the Hume Murray Farmers Market, Rutherglen Farmers Market and Mornington's Main Street Market, all famous for their diverse, high-quality fare.
Food and wine trails

Follow the Murray River's popular Farm Gate Trail as it winds through Victoria's famous 'food bowl'. Stop at orchards, dairies, wineries, and craft breweries to fill your basket as you travel. Hit the Yarra Valley Food Trail for tasty treasures and quaint country picnics, and then explore the Otway Harvest Trail to sample the best of Victoria's south east.
