Tastes of the Bellarine

Explore, taste, relax!

Fresh is best! There’s nothing better than seeing where your food has come from or seeing it fresh from the paddock or sea. The Bellarine’s makers and growers consist of fresh fruit, vegetables and produce from farmer’s markets and provedores, seafood and mussels direct from the sea, cheese from the goats in the roadside paddocks, oil from the olive trees you drive past and blueberries that fill your buckets from the earth you have just picked them from.
