Of Apples, Ale and Autumn: Our Top Picks for Feast High Country Festival

This festival in north-east Victoria celebrates the region’s incredible produce – and turns the bounty into a party. In partnership with Tourism North East, here’s a handful of highlights.


North-east Victoria’s High Country is known for its fertile landscape, which cultivates some of the best produce in the state. It’s also resulted in a thriving food and drink scene that grows in leaps and bounds every year – from off-the-radar bakeries, wineries, breweries and distilleries, to producers of cheese, honey, olives, nuts, fruits, berries and more.

That bounty has long drawn people to gorge on, while also exploring the region’s undulating mountains and valleys, spectacular lakes, and the villages, towns and abundant walking and cycling paths that connect them. All that and more will be the focus of the Feast High Country Festival, running from May 3 to 19 in delicious celebration of the region’s wares. As well as high-profile names like Scott Pickett, who on May 4 will join forces with chef Simon Arkless at his The Terrace restaurant for a lunch with paired wines, a host of local producers will come together to demonstrate their passions.
