More than simply a pristine wilderness, the Gippsland region is also a foodie’s delight, with its many farm gates, dairies and cellar doors all ready to be discovered. Famous for prime beef grazing, gourmet produce and cool climate wines, the region is already a hotbed of sustainable farming and environmental practices.
From natural honey and free range eggs to grass-fed beef and edible native plants, the region’s growing foodie reputation provides the opportunity for the project to celebrate both the natural beauty of the region and its abundant produce.
With the chance to form environmental, culinary and tourism partnerships with local producers, growers and farmers, a developing eco-tourism project has room to grow. This trend towards environmentally conscious food production enhances the prospect of real engagement with the local community – a true sustainable model for the future.
