Local Produce in Torquay and Beyond
7 December 2015 - Great Ocean Road
When you visit a place, it’s always nice to try the local produce, right?
Torquay and the Surf Coast is quickly gaining a reputation as foodies paradise. With local produce abundant it’s ideal to spend some time exploring the region.
For breakfast, pick up some Zeally Bay Sourdough, baked in Torquay and available at Peaches Fruit Market, 132 Geelong Road, Torquay; walking distance from Serenity Accommodation.
We recommend lunch at The Farmer’s Place, a small working farm and café in Freshwater Creek. You can also stock up on some local produce at their market place to whip up a meal later in the gourmet kitchen at Serenity Townhouse Accommodation!
Bellbrae Estate Wines is located in the rolling hills just minutes from the famous Bells Beach. It has a cellar door with a great atmosphere and a chance to try some of the regions best wines.
Continue on through the Otways where there are wineries, breweries, berry farms, provedores, cafes and so much more.
