Welcome to the

Gourmet Coast

Beauty you can taste

"Tantalising tastes at every twist and turn. Every trail tells a different story...” The Secret Diary of a Foodie


Are you a food lover seeking a new story to share with friends?  A story with spectacular scenery, friendly locals, easy adventures and food that’s delicious from dawn ‘til dusk?  We know a place.  The Gourmet Coast is a pocket of beauty that will capture your tastebuds and your heart.  Stretching from Batemans Bay in the north to Eden in the south, it is here that you’ll find local flavours and people passionate about food.  Amazing oyster growers, distillers, farmers, wine makers, bakers, chefs, brewers and baristas call this coast home.  Find them on one of our trail itineraries or write your own adventure.  Whichever path you follow, you’ll find a warm welcome and tantalising tastes at every twist and turn.

Feast your eyes

Of course your break isn’t just sitting back with some of the best food and drink you’ll find.  There’s plenty to see on the Gourmet Coast too.  Most of the food you’ll eat here comes with a stunning view of the ocean, mountains, farms or forest.  But if you need to stretch your legs, there are easy walking trails along clifftops and through forests, pristine and secluded beaches down any side road, historic buildings, sea pools and coastal villages to explore. 

On your own or with friends or family, there’s plenty to do on water and on land – whale watching, fishing charters, kayaking, surfing, mountain biking, markets, festivals and events, art browsing, and classes to make your own culinary delights. So take your time, pack a picnic and enjoy some easy adventure.  We’ve got all the beauty you can taste.

Explore the Gourmet Coast by selecting one or many options from these menus.

Food Adventures

Itineraries — north, south or anywhere in between

If you love oysters, you’ll love this weekend. But oysters aren’t the only stars on the plate when you visit the rich waters of Merimbula, Pambula and Eden. This weekend itinerary is a mix of casual and fine dining that takes you from oyster leases to breweries to stylish restaurants – perfect for friends who want to mix it up, meet some makers and take it easy.
Discover the food revolution that has taken over this fishing village in the heart of the Gourmet Coast. With an abundance of great food and beach adventures within easy walking distance, Bermagui is a relaxed place to take a long weekend. Including a short drive into the hinterland to visit the country villages of Cobargo and Tilba, this itinerary introduces you to people, landscapes and flavours that will capture your heart and your tastebuds.
4-5 DAYS
This is five days of fun food adventures for you and your besties. You’ll eat and laugh your way along the coast, meeting great chefs and makers and dining in spectacular locations. Your insta account and your tastebuds are going to feel the love. This adventure includes visits to bars, distilleries, breweries and wineries. To ensure you have a good time and travel safely, we recommend you book group transport through Southbound Escapes or Bermi & Beyond. Both will show you a fun time and they know the locals.
Whether you’re in Batemans Bay for a day or a week, here are some must-sees for you in the middle of town and on short drives beyond the Bay. Discover local tastes in the middle of town, try the catch of the day on a river cruise, or become a coffee connoisseur in nearby Moruya.
