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.
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.
