What is the Delectable Taste of Farm-to-Table Indulgence tour?

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 sea port 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.

Farm-to-Table Produce Experienced In The Places They Were Created

The farm-to-table, paddock-to-plate, or fork-to-plate movement may have different names, but all form a part of the movement and resurgence towards reducing our food miles and people wanting to know where our food comes from. The Sunshine Coast Hinterland is one of the state's best regions to experience this with lush farming land dotted throughout the Hinterland and a strong desire for organic. Home to Australia's largest sea port on the Eastern Coast, on this Sunshine Coast tour, you'll experience seafood fresh from the trawler mere metres away from where you'll dine.

A Fully Inclusive Food Tour Experience

During this Sunshine Coast tour, you'll get a sensational meal made up of 4 - 6 different dishes, plus some other tastings, 3 - 6 wine tastings, wine at 3 stops (or other beverages if preferred). It is a full-day driving tour through the Glass House Mountains, Sunshine Coast Hinterlands and Sunshine Coast. During the day, you'll experience some great places that best represent different facets of the region's farm-to-table food scene, with plenty to see and learn along the way, and a friendly local guide and host.

Sunshine Coast Hinterland and Coastal Journey

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 Sunshine Coast's skyline, and are often said to be worth the trip in their own right. As you continue your journey along the Blackall Ranges, you'll enter the beautiful lush Hinterland where you will spend some time at two different places before descending down towards the sea. Both your lunch and dessert stops will be enjoyed at two different scenic locations near the water, and with additional opportunities to feel the sand between your toes, you'll see why the Sunshine Coast is often an underrated coastal destination.

Reviews

Jamie-Lee put together a one of a kind tour of the Sunshine Coast food scene just for me due to my allergy to alcohol and desire not to eat too much red meat. We started the day in Brisbane CBD where she surprised me with a bag of goodies just to start the morning. The highlight of our tastings was the immense and excellent seafood BBQ for lunch - so awesome! We also had great coffee, chocolate and afternoon cheese/fruit - certainly didn't need to eat dinner that night! We also fitted in a couple of short walks to help all that delicious food settle and I spent a few minutes browsing the shops in one of the small towns we visited. Jamie-Lee was super helpful pre-trip answering all of my questions and we had a blast that day getting to know one another. I couldn't ask for anything more.

I would highly recommend this tour. Our guide Wade was lovely, he obviously knew the area well and was extremely helpful. The stops on our tour were exquisite the food was excellent at every stop and were not obvious places to go for out of towners.
