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.

Ideal for Canberrans needing a mid-winter mini break, try these pairings to connect with amazing foodies while enjoying warm, sunny days on the Gourmet Coast Trail. These easy, one-day itineraries are made even more special by staying overnight.

If you’re feeling the cold in Canberra this winter, zip down the Clyde and venture a little further to explore the Bay and beyond.
