Overview

Food & wine

Follow your appetite, stimulate the senses and reconnect with the land in a region that takes the concept of paddock to plate dining to another level. Sample gourmet dishes created with wonderfully fresh seasonal fare, fill your basket at local farmgates and markets, and celebrate the region's myriad wine offerings at cellar doors, local eateries and hatted restaurants.

In high demand

Journey to Daylesford, where the enduring presence of the Lake House has ensured a long legacy as the gourmet heart of the region. The nearby townships of Kyneton, Trentham, Hepburn Springs, and Woodend are snapping at its heels, with Kazuki's, Source Dining, Midnight Starling, Du Fermier, The Cosmopolitan, and Maloa House Gourmet Delights all worth a reservation.

You'll even be rewarded with top food when you visit smaller towns like Clunes, Malmsbury and Gisborne.

Farm gates, provedores and markets

Delight in the pristine environment, fertile volcanic plains and clear mineral springs that provide the backdrop to your food and wine adventure. Check out the local farmers' markets and provedores to find local chutneys, cheeses, jams and other gourmet goodies. Load up the boot with organic fruit and vegetables, free-range eggs and high quality local meats. In June and July, follow your nose to Black Cat Truffles in Creswick and sniff out vendors at local markets.

Be sure to follow signs down country lanes to small but internationally recognised family vineyards for a glass, bottle, or case of world-beating wines.

Afternoon tastings, evening tipples

Savour vineyard views and excellent local produce and wine at Grange Bellinzona's onsite regional wine hub in Hepburn Springs or head to Kyneton's Piper Street for an evening of cool ales and pub nosh at the Royal George Hotel and artisanal gin cocktails at Animus Distillery's cellar door and lounge.
