The Great Lakes Food Trail
Looking for something to tickle the tastebuds this Autumn?
NSW Great Lakes Food Trail returns for its Autumn event on Sunday 22 April. Discover the Mid North Coast region’s finest producers along a trail through rolling green hills and with stunning lakeside views. Visit a variety of local farms, wineries and cafes, take an educational tour and enjoy tasting experiences along the way.
3.5 hours north of Sydney, the Great Lakes – Myall Lake, Smiths Lake and Wallis Lake - is already known for its pristine waterways and beaches, but its best-kept secret is its outstanding fresh food produce. On Sunday 22 April from 10am to 4pm, a group of likeminded producers are opening their properties to the public for The Great Lakes Food Trail.
Visitors will get to taste local organic water buffalo mozzarella at the outstanding Burraduc Buffalo Farm and enjoy locally sourced and produced gourmet meals at the cafes on the trail. The kids will love hand feeding lambs at Lucy Land Merino Farm at Bulahdelah and collecting eggs from free ranging chickens at Topi Open Range Farm.
Taste the region’s artisan cheeses, honey, seasonal fruit and vegetables sourdough, oysters, wines and craft brews. Learn about the principles of ethical farming, straight from the producers themselves, who pride themselves in the humane production of wholesome food.
Co-Cordinator of The Great Lakes Food Trail and owner of the Topi Open Range farm, Sue Williams said, “We are so excited to present the results of our hard work to locals and visitors to the Great Lakes region. Whether its fresh and ethically grown produce, sweet treats, fine wines and beverages or other bounties of the region, The Great Lakes Food Trail is showcasing the best we have to offer and is contributing to sustainable economic and tourism growth for the area.”
