First up I'm going to tell you this book occupied my head space and computer for many weeks at the start of the year. My job was to enhance and edit the pages of information collected by the Queensland Government, and there was a lot to sort through!
It covers every part of the state revealing foodie finds in the most unlikely places.
It's a great guide to enjoying food, wine and beverage experiences with detailed information on towns located in each region, food and wine-related festivals and activities, and comprehensive business listings. There's also a handy list of markets, wineries and over 200 food, wine and beverage operators and information on when they are open. That means you won't turn up on a weekend and be disappointed that they are not open!
There are things in this book that I didn't know about and was surprised to discover - I'm sure you'll find the same.
Hema's detailed inset maps and atlas pages show where each region can be found and make it easy to locate businesses. There are important contacts, background on wine tasting, and helpful map references within the text. You'll even find recipes for every region so you can enjoy all the locally produced goodies you take home from your adventure.
