Scenic Rim Eat Local Week celebrates the food, farmers and the natural beauty of the Scenic Rim through a program of festivals, farm gate events and culinary experiences. The Scenic Rim produces a vast bounty of fruit and vegetables, wines, craft beer, milk, meat and gourmet products, including olives, cheeses, nuts, jams and relishes. Eat Local Week connects consumers with farmers and highlights the benefits of sourcing food that’s in-season, close to home.
Eat Local Week has something for foodies of all ages featuring free and low-cost activities for children and families, farm tours, cooking classes, producer dinners and opportunities to meet the farmers and taste their wares.
The week culminates in the Winter Harvest Festival, Scenic Rim Eat Local Week’s signature event. It’s a celebration of food, wine and farming. There’s live music, fresh produce, cooking demonstrations and plenty of good old fashioned country hospitality.
The Scenic Rim is located in South East Queensland, 80km, or about one hour’s drive, from Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
