Food Tourism Development Program

Eight years ago Australian Tropical Foods initiated food tourism in this region with the Taste of the Tropics Food Trails. Participants have grown from 41 in 2001 to an outstanding 93 in 2009.  Now when times are tough, it’s time to re-evaluate every aspect of our business to meet the needs of the demanding tourists.  Most importantly a collaborative effort is required to develop the market further.

The ongoing work with farm and food tourism we hoped to achieve previously has fortunately now being picked up by the Southern Cross University and after attending the meetings on the Tablelands, this is just what the industry needs to move forward.  If you are an existing agri-tourism operator or just starting out, it is worthwhile for yourself and the region to find out more about the Agri-food Tourism Workshops.
