If you relish flavorsome food and fabulous foodie experiences, then you need to add Relish Food and Wine festival on the Fraser Coast to your calendar of must dos. It's the perfect experience if you're already here visiting Hervey Bay and Fraser Island AND it has all the makings of a great day trip if you live in or are visiting surrounding towns!

Our very own, Chef Leigh Saunders and Ranger Luke Hunter, will bring the flavours of Fraser Island to the mainland as they rub shoulders with Celebrity Chef (and friend of Fraser), Alastair McLeod and the winners of last year's My Kitchen Rules - Hervey Bay's own Dan and Steph.

Our dynamic duo will present a bush tucker talk and taste session in the Food Lovers Marquee from 1130. They'll be sharing Chef secrets for cooking with native ingredients and letting you know about the bush tucker ingredients that can spice up your menus at home. We'll also be serving up tasty bush-tucker inspired morsels including kangaroo on rosemary spears, Hervey Bay king prawns and locally caught barra from our pop up food stand - so make sure you pop by for a visit (and be sure to tag any pics with #fraserisland and #restaurantaustralia).

When: Saturday, June 7
Where: Maryborough Portside Precinct (Queens Park and Parklands, Wharf Street, Maryborough)
Time: 11:00am until 6:00pm
Cost: Tickets to Relish are $10 and can be pre-purchased online or at the gate on the day 
How to get there

Relish showcases and celebrates our regional produce and food industry and 2014 looks to be better again with the program planned to extend into the early evening to satisfy those looking to enjoy the sun set in the park with a glass of wine and some relaxing tunes. There will be more fresh local produce, favourite tasting sessions, demonstrations, competitions and much more.  See you there!
