Heartland offers a taste of what Coalstoun Lakes has to offer
THE weekend long events for the 2017 Heartland Festival include the Five Course Taste Tour of the Coalstoun Lakes Valley on Sunday, July 2.
The tour is being run by the Coalstoun Lakes Development Group and will take participants on a scenic taste tour of what the valley has to offer, event organiser Renee McGilvery said.
“Visiting many of the rich volcanic farms in the area, the tour will champion local pumpkins, figs, avocados, peanuts, beef, pork, citrus, cheese, wine and craft beer,” Ms McGilvery said.
Along with the chance to sit down and meet some of the farmers responsible for the local produce, the tour will allow attendees an in-depth look into how production is completed, the farm to fork journey.
Participants will also be able to purchase a host of local produce, craft beer, wine, juice and soft drink from the travelling bar.
“Then indulge in a warm sit-down garden lunch before being treated to locally inspired desserts, fruits and cheeses at the historic Crater Lakes,” Ms McGilvery said.
Crater Lakes is located in the Coalstoun Lakes National Park and is the site of a volcanic eruption more that 600,000 years ago, making it one of the youngest volcanic formation in Australia.
The tour will begin from the Northern side of the Coalstoun Lakes Valley from 9.30am until 3pm.
Spaces are limited.
