Taste Great Southern
March 26 – April 5 2020
Set on the rugged southern coastline and farming hinterland of the Great Southern Region, the premier food and wine festival Taste Great Southern returns for 11 days from March 26 – April 5 2020. The region’s highlight festival celebrates award-winning wine, delicious fresh produce and the amazing flavours of the Great Southern. With 20+ chefs including the inaugural MasterChef winner Julie Goodwin, fan favourite Derek Lau, plus a host of local talent across 30+ not-to-be-missed culinary experiences, this festival will be home to a music festival, a wine and food festival, long lunches, degustations, premium pairings, community markets and free events.
Including the major centres of Albany, Denmark, Mt Barker, Kojonup and Katanning, each area will showcase the Great Southern’s fresh, seasonal and exceptional produce. Foods like oysters and seafood, chicken, beef and lamb, heirloom vegetables and cheeses all excel on the south coast. You can indulge in all the delicious fresh produce and amazing flavours at many of the events. The award-winning wine, winemakers and breweries of the Great Southern will also feature across the program. You can expect to sip, taste and savour wine varietals such as Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Riesling, alongside craft beer made locally in the Great Southern.
Feast on the amazing culinary creations from the very talented local stars as they team up with Perth talent and Australian Guest Chef Julie Goodwin while they host a range of smaller intimate gatherings to larger events. Choose from several self-drive adventure packages and include the beautiful natural attractions such as Walpole’s Tree Top Walk and The Gap as well as manmade attractions. With Easter the following weekend, why not stay longer in the Great Southern!
