Eat your way around the Scenic Rim

Eat Local Week is a showcase of the people and produce of the Scenic Rim.

Experience the food and wine of this fertile region, which produces a bountiful selection of fruit and vegetables, wines, milk and gourmet products such as olives, cheeses, jams and relishes.

Eat Local Week asks visitors and Scenic Rim locals to consider their food and wine choices and recognise the vast array of products available on their doorstep. This festival of food and farming runs during the first week of the Queensland June-July school holidays at various locations around the Scenic Rim region, which is just one hour’s drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast.

This authentic food event connects consumers with food producers and highlights the benefits of sourcing food that’s in-season, close to the source.

Pick your own carrots, learn to cook with native Australian ingredients, or visit a robotic dairy – there’s a great range of free and low-cost events on offer.

Eat Local Week’s signature event, the Winter Harvest Festival, is a celebration of food, wine and farming featuring live music, fresh produce, tasting plates, cooking demonstrations by TV chef Alastair McLeod and a tractor pulling competition.

The Winter Harvest Festival is a celebration of the premium food and wine produced by the region’s farmers and agri-businesses.
