Sometimes, even the most adventurous among us need a little push; a piece of extra incentive to take a particular leap. So you've always wanted to wander around southeast Queensland's Scenic Rim region, but have never found the time? Well, consider the area's annual Eat Local Week all the motivation you need.
If exploring, eating and drinking can't get you in the car and down the highway, then nothing can. Unsurprisingly, that's just the big-picture view of this nine-day festival. Promoting Scenic Rim produce and the people behind it, the program includes everything from olive grove tastings, brewery chats and artisan markets to a street food fest, wine and pizza in a vineyard, and cheesemaking classes.
Camel training, bush tucker, country cooking and a picnic in a Tamborine Mountain paddock are also on the bill — as is a spot of farm yoga. Basically, if it's an event in the Beaudesert, Boonah, Beechmont and Mt Barney area between June 30 and July 8, it's on the agenda.
