Dining in the region is a foodies' delight! You will discover cafes, restaurants and hotels offering fine local produce and set in a range of distinctive locations.

Dine along a bustling sidewalk, in a charming café, or a gracious historic building - this is a truly vibrant and flavoursome food destination!

Not surprisingly, there are many regional events that showcase our gourmet strengths. Food and wine festivals occur in Castlemaine, Maldon, Taradale, Elphinstone and Harcourt - so be sure to check our Events Calendar and plan ahead.

The Castlemaine Farmers Market, held on the 1st Sunday of each month, and the Wesley Hill Market, held every Saturday morning, are both great opportunities to sample local produce.

Head out on a Taste of Gold Food and Wine trail to discover hidden treasures off the beaten track. Each of the trails feature a great variety of natural foods, wines, beverages, tourist attractions and country style accommodation. Pick up a trail brochure from one of the Visitor Information Centres to begin your journey.

Use the 'Cafes & Restaurants' 'Local Produce' and 'Wineries & Cideries' tabs for further information on where to get your foodie fix!
