Eat & DrinkYour guide to gastronomic delights
Teeming with fantastic restaurants, wine bars, vineyards and cafes, your palate will enjoy every part of a visit to Central NSW. But the food experience in this part of the world means more than sitting down for a beautiful meal or sipping an inspiring glass of wine. Being tightly woven into the land, its history and its people, the food story here can put you in black tie and gumboots for a truffle hunt, in a farm-house kitchen learning to cook, tasting bush-tucker over a smoky camp fire or following the trail of the 100 Mile Diet.
