The northern New South Wales culinary showcase that is Tastings on Hastings returns to Port Macquarie this year for its 15th year, from October 27 through October 29. With a new event precinct in the works, the foodie festival showcases regional farmers, artisans, food producers, wine growers, brewers, restaurants and cafes across Woolgoolga, Armidale, Nelsons Bay and, of course, the festival's own backyard.
Last year's event hosted 115 exhibitors and over 20,000 visitors, with regional producers showing goods like avocados, strawberries and macadamia nuts, as well as meats including free-range eggs, chicken, duck and pork.
The area's vineyards and breweries also play a role, with North Coast Wine Growers joining craft brew teams from Wicked Elf Beer and Moorebeer Brewing Co. to bring some bevvos to the day.
