Foodies, save the date and loosen your belts, ‘cause we’re about to bring you an unmissable opportunity to indulge in all the yummiest produce our epic hinterland has to offer. With a program filled to the brim with must-eats, must-drinks and must-visits, we just can’t wait to jump in the car and hit the winding country roads to enjoy this year’s Scenic Rim Eat Local Week.

The iconic event is back with a bang this year for their 10th anniversary, boasting their biggest program yet with 125 events across 48 locations. It’s bound to be a mouthwatering week of sampling all the best local food and wine that is made in the beautiful hinterland stretching all the way from the Gold Coast to Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast. Think of it as a backstage pass to all the best farms, wineries and food stores in our beautiful backyard.

Farm-hopping from gate to gate sampling local treats is the name of the game, but that’s nowhere near the end of it. Get the perfect selfie with an adorable alpaca or a cute camel, fawn over cute baby farm animals or get into the country mood by watching a tractor pulling competition… the list goes on.

If you’re in need of a staycation involving some delicious food and relaxing, this is the perfect chance to catch two birds with one stone by turning your visit into an overnight country getaway. Think crackling fireplaces with starry nights and a glass of quality red wine in hand, just a short drive from the city. They don’t call it the Scenic Rim for nothing—winter sunsets just hit differently over a paddock or up on a plateau.

It’s about much more than dining too, with a program ranging from cooking classes to overnight stays, tours and kids’ adventures. Events are already selling out already so book your tickets now to make sure you won’t be left hungry.
