Overview

Food & wine

Discover the makers and growers, chefs, brewers and vignerons who are behind Geelong and the Bellarine's growing reputation as a foodie destination. Dine on fresh seasonal produce, sample artisanal delights, and enjoy creative cuisine at wineries, cafes and restaurants - from the Moorabool Valley in the north-west and the city's vibrant waterfront and urban precincts to the rolling hills and sandy beaches of the peninsula.

Farm fresh

Stop at farm-gates, talk to the producers and sample their wares. Try goat cheeses, tomatoes, olive oil mixes, award-winning ice creams, and fresh ocean catches, from mussels to oysters and abalone, pulled straight from Port Phillip Bay.

Dining out

Dine at sunny cafes and hatted restaurants offering seasonal menus inspired by the best local produce. See what all the fuss is about at Igni, named The Age Good Food Guide's Regional Restaurant of the Year. Visit award-winning wineries and taste an impressive range of wine varieties renowned for their bold and complex flavours. Pop into microbreweries and cider houses and be inspired by the science and precision that goes into making a finely crafted brew.

Off to market

Take a cruise out to one of the many produce markets and let your senses do the talking. Taste handmade cheeses, fresh local berries and homemade jam. Be led astray by the smell of freshly baked bread, local soaps and beekeeper's honey. And on your way home, be sure to stop in at a local provedore to stock up on gourmet goodies for the journey home.
