The Delectable Farm-to-Table Indulgence is a Sunshine Coast tour that makes for a great day tour from Brisbane. The tour will take you on a scenic journey through the Sunshine Coast Hinterland and along the stunning Sunshine Coast.
This food tour showcases local produce and iconic ingredients from the Sunshine Coast regions we will be visiting with additional stops along the way to ensure you can take in the beauty of the Sunshine Coast. It is a three-course lunch-time experience with wine at three of the stops (or other drinks if preferred).
Your knowledgeable guide will tell you all about the food you’re eating, plus Sunshine Coast’s food scene, and a little about the areas you visit so you get much more than just the food on your plate.
On this Sunshine Coast tour, you’ll see why the Hinterland area is one of the state’s best regions to experience farm-to-table dining with lush farming land dotted throughout and a strong desire for organic. Plus, discover why the Sunshine Coast is such an underrated coastal destination. Being home to Australia’s largest seaport on the Eastern Coast, you’ll also get to experience seafood fresh from the trawler mere metres away from where you’ll dine.
There are a few things all of our experiences have in common and that is an emphasis on local produce, local venues, operators, artisans and producers, and this experience is no different! This tour has been specially designed to showcase some of the region’s best produce and stunning views.
Whilst indulging in various farm-to-table delights, you will also be guided on a journey of the Sunshine Coast’s food history, the stories behind the area and the places you’ll visit and learn first-hand from both your host and venues why the Sunshine Coast is such a delicious foodie destination.
Stop #1 – Experience One of the Best Vantage Points in the Glass House Mountains
When you first step out of the car, you’ll experience one of the best vantage points to take in the spectacular Glass House Mountains. They are a unique facet of the region’s skyline and are often said to be worth the trip in their own right.
Stop #2 – Local Platter to Graze on Whilst Enjoying Locally Produced Wines
After enjoying a tasting of locally produced wines, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy your favourite drop with this first course. Your first lunch course will be a platter of locally grown and produced meats, vegetables and cheeses. These entrees of local ingredients will be beautifully paired with wine or drink of choice along with a scenic vista.
Stop #3 – Enjoy the Quaintness of a Cute Country Town and Sample and Select Handmade Luxury Chocolates
Whilst visiting this chocolatier, we will also pick up some goodies for your picnic dessert to be enjoyed later by the beach.
Stop #4 – Indulge in Infamous Local Produce Beautifully Paired with Wine
For the main lunch course, you’ll drive down from the hinterland to the coastal region where you’ll enjoy the main course of locally caught seafood (or other dishes depending on preference), whilst taking in the coastal views. After lunch, you will have the opportunity to explore the harbour area or esplanade and walk along the beach before heading back down the coast to your final stop.
Stop #5 -Scenic Dessert Picnic with Wine and Chocolates
To ensure you experience the beauty of the Sunshine Coast’s beaches, your final stop will be at a scenic picnic spot right on the coast (if the weather is less than favourable, other arrangements will be made).
