Celebrating food, farmers and the beauty of the Scenic Rim
Now is the perfect time to head to the Scenic Rim. With the weather getting cooler, warm up with some good old fashioned country hospitality. Launched in 2011, Eat Local Week gets bigger and better every year. Held from 29 June to 7 July, Eat Local Week showcases the food, wine and farmers of the region.

The fun isn't just for the adults. From farm tours to camel rides and carrot picking, there are plenty of experiences to amuse the kids these school holidays. Events span Tamborine Mountain, Beaudesert, Kalbar, Boonah, Harrisville and Aratula, allowing guests to experience the smorgasbord of fresh produce the region is known for.

With so many events to choose from, you may have difficulty deciding what to experience. Here is a list of six fun events to add to your calendar:

KALFRESH CARROT FIELD DAY

The Kalfresh Carrot Field Day is a highlight of the festival and tickets are selling fast. Kalfresh is Queensland's biggest carrot farm and children are invited to sit on tractors, chat to farmers, tour the factory and pick their own carrots. Bookings are essential. Tickets have been selling fast, however, there are still some single and group tickets available in the later time slots.
