If you're a fan of locally-caught seafood, homegrown macadamia nuts and gourmet cheeses served with some of south-east Queensland's award-winning wines and craft beers, then you have to head to Relish Food & Wine Festival this June 2nd!
Festival goers can look forward to special guest, camp oven cooking guru Ranger Nick, showcasing the Fraser Coast region's finest local produce. As well as Ranger Nick, My Kitchen Rules 2013 winners Dan and Steph Mulheron will be in attendance!
