Northern Food Trail

Toowoomba, Toowoomba Area

Launch your regional food extravaganza from the Great Dividing Range in Toowoomba on a 457 kilometre Northern Food Trail circuit through the rich Darling Downs farming land.

Firstly head towards the rural townships of Oakey and Dalby and onto the Bunya Mountains markets to pick up some local bunya nut meal, used in carrot and bunya nut cake and even beef and bunya nut pies and burgers.

Further east, stop at the wafting smells of freshly roasted nuts from the peanut van in Kingaroy and sample their unique flavours, like the peanut prune salad and cherry and peanut cookies.

The South Burnett boutique wine region including nearby Goomeri and Nanango are home to both award winning white and red grape varieties and surrounded by olive groves, country gardens and farming land. Overnight in on-vineyard accommodation or rustic farm stay cottages before setting off to Maidenwell and the Highfields, with charming roadside produce stalls en route back to the 'Garden City' of Toowoomba.
