Fabulous food, wonderful wines, groovy beats, and an exhilarating location combine at the iconic
Harvest Picnic at Hanging Rock Sunday 26 February 2012.

The senses will get a serious workout, especially the tastebuds given there's an abundance of Victorian produce from more than 100 small food and wine producers.

That's oodles of opportunities to wrap your lips around some of
the most more-ish morsels our artisan producers produce. (And that's a mouthful in itself.)

Gather friends, phone your family and share a day reclining beneath the gum trees (between shopping and tasting, sipping and supping).

Catch a cooking class with guest chefs, including
Annie Smithers, who grows much of her own produce for her renowned Kyneton Bistrot. Given she's just back from Burgundy in France, where she scoured local farmers markets and honed her French cooking skills, it promises to be tres bon.

Relax all long, lazy day and enjoy live entertainment on stage. The kids will also have a hoot with plenty of free entertainment.

The famous, mysterious rock makes a beautiful backdrop and
also begs climbing. Bring your runners. You'll be glad you did.

Maybe read the story of the original (eerie) picnic at Hanging Rock first for some magic, mystery and history.

I go every year. I eat, I climb, I rest, I shop, I eat some more - and I really look forward to it.

It's a day of indulgence and sheer pleasure. And, at just $25 for adults (purchase online), $20 Concession and kids under 15 admitted free, it offers great value for money.

Of course, that won't be an issue if you're the winner of our very delicious competition.
