Margaret River in top 10 foodie hot list

August 16, 2014 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

The Margaret River Region has been named as one of Australia’s ‘top 10 hottest foodie experiences of right now’ by best-selling travel magazine, Australian Traveller.

Australian Traveller magazine asked a panel of the country’s top food and travel experts to reveal their hottest food destinations and experiences for ten ultimate gourmet weekends away, and Margaret River made the top 10.

Margaret River was named amongst various gourmet destinations, some renowned and others and up and coming, such as Geelong in Victoria, the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Huon Valley in Tasmania and Orange in NSW.

Well-known food, wine and travel writer Winsor Dobbin wrote the review on Margaret River after his recent visit to the region on a familiarisation trip hosted by the Augusta Margaret River Tourism Association (AMRTA).

Speaking almost lovingly of local foodie hotspots Aravina Estate, Muster, Swings Taphouse and Miki’s Open Kitchen, Winsor referred to Margaret River as ‘a well-trodden wine region’ which ‘consistently has something new to offer hungry visitors.’

The panel consisted of six renowned food and travel writers including Winsor Dobbin, Editor of Australian Traveller Georgia Rickard, and popular food blogger Kerry Heany, who is known for her search for Australia’s best cupcake.

AMRTA’s Chief Executive Officer Pip Close said the accolade was certainly well-deserved.

“The Margaret River Region is starting to be known for more than just its wine – we really do have outstanding food experiences here as well,” said Ms Close.

“From fresh locally-grown produce at the Farmer’s Markets to a casual brewery grazing plate or fine dining at some of the high-end winery restaurants, Margaret River is a foodie’s heaven!” she said.

“This accolade is very timely as we have just released a wonderful new trail guide to celebrate the small-batch producers of food and wine in the Margaret River Region, titled Inspirational Food and Wine Journeys,” said Ms Close.
