Take a tour around the Scenic Rim region these school holidays to enjoy a sprawling festival for foodies of all ages.

An hour’s drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast is the Scenic Rim region – home to breathtaking landscapes, six national parks and the World Heritage-listed Gondwana Rainforest. It’s also the home of some great food, which the region will be celebrating from Saturday June 25 to Sunday July 3, with Scenic Rim Eat Local Week.

A range of free and low-cost events across the week include the Canungra Foodie Fest on Saturday June 25; a series of olive-centric tastings at Rathlogan Olive Grove; the Rathdowney Country Market; and the Beaudesert Street Food Festival. There will also be a vegetarian feast at the Pots of Produce Outdoor Music & Feast on Friday July 1.

Specially curated experiences include sunrise camel rides; farm tours; sunset cocktails and vodka tastings with Summer Land Camels; daily alpaca picnics in the vines with Mountview Alpaca Farm; and tours of Tamborine Mountain Distillery, complete with a gin and tonic on arrival.

There are plenty of kid friendly offerings, with a range of workshops including a mini frog hotel class at Jasmine Urban Farm and a kids cheese-making workshop with Towri Sheep Cheeses.

If long lunches, degustations and dinners are more your speed, don’t miss the Paddock Feast at Hazelwood Estate; the Longest Lunch at O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyards (complete with two hours of bottomless drinks); an Italian-style feast at The Overflow Estate 1895; or Cedar Creek Lodges’ annual Christmas in July banquet, celebrating a whole range of Scenic Rim produce, wine and spirits. Also, be sure to check out Boonah’s hottest new restaurant, Blume, between June 28 and July 1, for a series of lunches hosted by some of the state’s finest chefs including Matt Blackwell from GOMA and Phil Merchant from Essa.

Lastly, on Saturday July 2, don’t miss the Winter Harvest Festival – Eat Local Week’s signature event – serving up the Scenic Rim on a platter. Meet the farmers, taste the food and buy their produce.
