Scenic Rim Eat Local Week 2019

The Scenic Rim regional council are asking you to Eat Local this June and July, with a week-long festival that showcases the food and farms of the area, all set against the impressive natural scenery.

Scenic Rim describes the spread of mountains and rainforest west of Brisbane and the Gold Coast, and the towns nestled within their nooks and crannies. This sprawling region will become a little smaller during the winter school holidays this year, with the hidden delights on display from 27 June - 6 July.

Eat Local Week brings together farmers, chefs, brewers, and other producers throughout the Scenic Rim, with a comprehensive week-long program. More than a dozen farms will open their gates to the public, with open days and tours encouraging visitors to take an interest in their food's origins.

An impressive range of restaurant will cook up everything from barbeque to vegan organic, while wineries and pubs will teach punters the importance of the right drink pairing. Stock up at the markets, relax with a gig or yoga session, or find more events on the Eat Local Week website.

With this event taking place during the school holidays you'll be happy to know that it's kid-friendly, offering workshops, farm fun and bush tucker cooking lessons.

If you're planning on spending a few days in the area, the Scenic Rim has a selection of camping, glamping, cottages, retreats, eco-lodges, and romantic getaways to suit all budgets and travellers. And if you have time to spare, try a tour, a swim, a trip to the historical village, or a visit to a robot farm (yep, you read that right).
