Scenic Rim Eat Local Week 2018 is just around the corner and the region is eagerly preparing for its largest event of the year.
The annual event is a major tourism drawcard for the Scenic Rim, attracting thousands of foodies from across the country wanting to sample some of the best and freshest locally grown produce the country has to offer. Attendees will celebrate the region’s food, farmers and natural beauty through a program of festivals, farm gate events and various culinary experiences.
Running from June 30 to July 8, Eat Local Week is the perfect time to holiday at Mt Barney Lodge as our grounds are close to many of the surrounding farm events being held across the week.
As part of Eat Local Week 2018, Mt Barney Lodge is also hosting a Kid’s Bush Tucker Tracker activity on the 1,3 and 7 July. Kids will be guided into nature with our outdoor leaders to discover native wildlife, as well as taste native bush tucker where it grows wild. Learning through play, as well as a few icebreaker games, will ensure the kids will have loads of fun. This hands-on and tastebuds-on activity is not to be missed out on.
