Scenic Rim Eat Local Week
Featuring more than 90 events from Canungra to The Lost World, Beaudesert to Boonah, Tamborine Mountain to Kalbar, Scenic Rim Eat Local Week is the ultimate backstage pass to the farms, wineries and food stories of the region. The famed event presents the opportunity to meet the people behind the produce and the flavours, in a celebration that features festivals, farm-gate events and culinary experiences for foodies of all ages. Set against the natural beauty of the Scenic Rim, a region of more than 4,200 square kilometres of rich volcanic soil surrounded by ancient mountains and home to thousands of farmers and food creators, Eat Local Week is one of the most authentic food festivals in the world.
The program is overflowing with must-see and must-taste experiences, from degustations and the Kalfresh Carrot Day where you can pick your own, to Jamming with the Lambs at Towri Sheep Cheeses where farmers Carolyn and Dallas working with Spicers Retreats’ Executive Chef Cameron Matthews create a truly amazing scene, with roaring fires, live jazz and lambs to cuddle, to Kate Raymont’s Degustation at The Overflow Estate 1895 and O’Reilly’s Canungra Valley Vineyard’s Longest Lunch which sees the shared table grow longer every year!
There’s camel cheese tasting, beer and wine lunches, and a long table lunch on a sixth generation working Dairy Farm prepared by Glen Barratt, one of Queensland’s finest chefs. Breakfast with the Jersey Girls @ Tommerup’s Dairy Farm will also launch their new micro-creamery which is an exciting addition for the Scenic Rim.
Committed to providing the younger generation with their own journey of food discovery, experiences for the kids include a visit to Greenlee Farm, a working macadamia nut farm running tours exclusively for Eat Local Week, the Alpaca Picnic @ Mountview Alpaca Farm (just down the road from Greenlee), the Little Farmer Humpty Day @ Summer Land Camels and the famous Winter Harvest Festival, Eat Local Week’s signature event held at Aratula on July 6 (which is for all food lovers!).
Carefully curated to celebrate the food and drink stories of the Scenic Rim, Eat Local Week 2019 boasts a rollcall of Ambassadors including Queensland’s food doyenne Alison Alexander, Wild Canary Executive Chef Glen Barrett, Three Girls Skipping’s Caroline Jones, Homage Restaurant at Spicers Hidden Vale’s Ash Martin and The Wolfe’s Josue Lopez among others.
