5 foodie trails for kids

On these family-friendly foodie trails, kids can discover the delights of fresh grown produce and see some of Australiaís best scenery all at once.

Strawberry fields, QLD

With an abundance of beaches, lakes and rivers and plenty of great theme parks and attractions around the corner, Noosa is a haven for families. Add fresh, nutritious produce and itís also a gourmetís delight. Chocoholics will love the Noosa Chocolate Factory, and surrounding farm gates provide ample opportunities to pick (and eat) plump ripe strawberries and find friendly farm animals to pat.

Apples and alpacas, NSW

The Hawkesbury Harvest is a country experience on the doorstep of Sydney. The Hawkesbury Farm Gate Trail introduces the kids to a myriad variety of pick-your-own produce, from mandarins and apples to stone fruit and nuts. The look on the kidsí faces as they bite into a crisp orchard-fresh apple straight from the tree at Bilpin Fruit Bowl is worth the journey alone. Seeing them cuddle a baby Alpaca at Tanglin Lodge Alpacas can be counted as a bonus.

Capital capers, ACT

The Poacherís Way is a scenic gourmet trail that showcases cool climate wines and fresh regional produce along with local artists and producers. Between bites of the fresh stuff, visit Cooradigbee Fossil Tours, ride on horseback to watch sheep and cattle mustering, or spot Australian wildlife in the surrounding bushland with Burnelee Excursions on Horseback.

A river runs through it, VIC

The Echuca Moama Food and Wine Trail highlights the finest food experiences in this culinary district. The twin towns in this fertile region are separated only by the mighty Murray River. While mum and dad might get distracted by the lure of the local vineyards, kids will prefer getting lost in the Couverture Room at Renaissance Chocolates or picking berries straight from the patch at The Big Strawberry . And what better way to taste your way around the area than by paddlesteamer.

With a cherry on top, S.A.

The Yummy Adelaide Hills Food Trail for Kids is designed for foodie families. Along the way kids receive complimentary tastings of locally produced foods and get to meet the producers to learn about where their food comes from and how it is made. Hungry families will also love the summer Cherry Trail that links the regionís orchards. Stop by as many of the orchards as you want and pick bagfuls of plump, ripe cherries straight from the tree. Who could resist?
