Must Do

Great food and wine across NSW

Award-winning top-rated restaurants are liberally sprinkled across New South Wales from Leura to OrangeByron 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 café or tasting fine wine made by a third generation wine-maker.
