Food dreams - Kangaroo Island Farm Gate and Cellar Door Trail

If you haven't been to Kangaroo Island off the South Australian Coast line, you really should put it on your list.

Not only is the scenery absolutely breath taking but the food and wine is outstanding as well.

To help you find your way around the island there's a new Kangaroo Island Farm Gate and Cellar Door Trail
featuring the finest in local food and wine.

The  trail includes a range of producers, cellar doors and events, allowing visitors to easily find and sample its best fare, plus call in at its welcoming cellar doors.

The trail brochure, which is available in hard-copy and online, includes three suggested itineraries developed for visitors with varying amounts of time on the island, each featuring a mix of art, scenery and natural delights.

Kangaroo Island is renowned for products such as free-range eggs, olive oil, native berry jams, seafood, regional yoghurts and cheeses, honey, breads and biscuits. The island’s 200 hectares of vines are tended by 30 growers, who together produce wine for 18 labels. Ciders and spirits are also made locally.

I came home with an armful of products, all I could fit in my suitcase, including lobster oil, wine, honey and olive oil.  Unfortunately I was not there during the lobster season.

 Here's some of the scenery.
