Gourmet Delights

The region is a foodie's delight with an array of award-winning restaurants, cafes and bakeries using fresh ingredients from local artisan producers and Zealong Tea Estate, the nation's only tea plantation, offering what is reputedly the purest Oolong tea in the world.

As you might expect from a region famous for its dairy farming, local cheesemakers have established themselves as industry leaders, and artisan ice-cream makers are gaining popularity with imaginative flavour combinations, Bread and honey producers as well as coffee roasters also call the region home, along with the growing number of farmers markets with specialist food purveyors selling their wares.
