Great food and wine across NSW
Award-winning top-rated restaurants are liberally sprinkled across New South Wales from Leura to Orange, Byron Bay to Mildura with committed chefs attracted by the abundant, quality, seasonal produce. You can stock up on delicious gourmet goodies at the farm gate, artisan bakeries, family-owned wineries and the regular farmers' markets that are now a tourist feature of most major NSW towns.
Stay for a short break or long weekend to enjoy a regional cooking class or wine tasting course in the Hunter Valley, Mudgee or the Southern Highlands. Impress your friends with rare vintages, organic hand-made cheeses and fresh seafood from some of the cleanest waters in the world or a box of succulent organic figs, juicy peaches or crisp apples.
On your travels you'll also discover that some foodie pleasures never fade. Lunch on the veranda of an old country pub, fish and chips on the beach, an afternoon cream tea in a quaint cafÃ© or tasting fine wine made by a third generation wine-maker.
There's never been a better time to combine great food experiences with touring in country NSW. You'll find award-winning restaurants, cellar doors bursting with fine local wines, farmers' markets and fabulous food and wine events
New South Wales is famous for its wineries, including the renowned Southern Highlands, Mudgee and Hunter Valley towns which produce award-winning wines available for sampling at local cellar doors.
