Choose your adventure
Dig into freshly caught seafood straight out of the Southern Ocean. Sample gourmet delights along the Otway Harvest Trail and the 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail. Pop into craft breweries and cool climate wineries or check out the new artisanal distillery near the 12 Apostles. Alternatively, just while away the days at seaside cafes up and down the coast.
Savour mouth-watering local delicacies such as regionally produced cheeses, chutneys, cakes and homemade bread. Visit one of the many produce vendors or get into the hustle and bustle of the local markets to pick up fresh fruits, berries and olives, grown just around the corner. In June and July, sniff out stalls selling truffles or join a hunt at one of Victoria's oldest truffieres.
Let some else make your lunch and enjoy the friendly hospitality in award-winning local restaurants, cafes and country tearooms.
Call in to a cellar door at one of the vineyards in the Henty wine region. Located in the state's southwest corner, the region is the perfect spot for fans of cool climate varietals like pinot noir and Riesling.
