Discover Gippsland's local produce, from the milk that makes its famous gourmet cheeses to the berry farms, seafood co-ops and organic orchards across the region.
The lush pastures of West Gippsland support a strong local dairy produce industry that provides much of Melbourne's milk, as well as milk for the area's award-winning export cheeses. The same hills are also the grazing ground for pasture-fed beef, lamb and game.
If you're travelling through Gippsland in the warmer months, you can purchase or pick your own fruit and berries from a number of local produce farms and orchards. You can also buy local produce straight from the growers at year-round farmers' markets throughout the region. Check out the seasonal offerings at popular markets in Drouin, Warragul, Coal Creek and Sale. Delis and produce stores stock a wide range of local delicacies, including award-winning olive oils and gourmet cheeses, and they can help you match food produce with local wines.
Sample the bounty of the vast Gippsland coastline with a seafood cook-up on your holiday. The centrepiece of Gippsland local produce, seafood can be bought cooked or fresh at Lakes Entrance co-operatives.
