Trip Itinerary

Stop #1 - Pick your own strawberries and experience a behind-the-scenes farm tour
To kick-off your hinterland experience, you will pick your own strawberries to graze on throughout the day and get an insiders guide to how a multifaceted food farm operates. Here you’ll also be able to select a couple of goodies to enjoy for morning tea. We will also grab a coffee or other beverage on the way up to energise you for this hands-on stop.
Stop #2 - Scenic stop to take in the beauty of the Hinterland region
As we weave our way through the hinterland, we will stop at a spectacular vantage point to further highlight some key facets of the region.
Stop #3 - Visit one of the area's first REKO rings
One of the best ways to meet a number of the area’s best producers is through something called a REKO ring. Here, we will pick up a number of prearranged goodies to have with your picnic lunch and meet the makers in the process.
Stop #4 - Enjoy a country town with true charm
Before heading off to lunch, we will have the opportunity to explore a quaint country town, whilst also picking up the final ingredients for your picnic lunch.
Stop #5 - Indulge in private picnic at an exclusive location
Here you will sit back, relax, and enjoy all the goodies you have gathered throughout the morning. Upon arriving at this gorgeous location, you’ll be greeted with all the trimmings and comforts to make your picnic experience even more enjoyable. You can also choose to add wine or beer for this stop when booking.
Stop #6 Select from another small town and afternoon tea option or a gin tasting experience
Whilst we know some love gin, we also know it’s not for everyone. For the last stop, you’ll have the opportunity to choose between a gin tasting, tour and a G&T to cap off your experience. Or, alternatively, you can choose to make a stop in another great country town for afternoon tea.

Reviews from Regional Experiences

Jamie-Lee provided a private tour for my friends and I to celebrate a birthday. We all had a great time which was both informative and satisfying. Would have no hesitation in recommending Delectable Tours!

I have done many food tours in the past but Jamie has set a standard that will be very hard to beat. From the first enquiry I knew this business felt special and as for the tour, it could not have been any better planned. I highly recommend this great business to anyone even locals that want a great day out. Thanks again Jamie.

Discover REKO

*REKO is a Swedish acronym variously translated as “real consumption,” “fair consumption” or “sincere consumption” (you get the idea). It was invented by Finnish farmer Thomas Snellman, who was looking for a better outlet than grocery stores for his wares. And by “ring,” we mean a group of people cooperating for a shared purpose REKO rings allow growers to advertise and sell digitally, and drop off presold goods at a predetermined time and place.
