After a sold out event in March, the Highland Valley Forage in Kangaroo Valley is back in 2021. This foodie trail tells the story of how the Southern Highlands, Shoalhaven and Coast, South of Sydney are connected, through food and wine.
Be sustained by our 10-course degustation menu, meet the locals, taste cool climate wines, smell the wild flowers blooming in the warm spring air and take in some of the most breathtaking scenery of the region as you experience the Highland Valley Forage. Enjoy our 4km experience or take in the entire 9.5km walk.
Guests walk along the Three Views Walking track, stopping at 10 food and beverage stations along the way, enjoying a degustation lunch, meeting the local food and wine producers and being part of nature. This area was directly impacted in January 2020 by the bushfires and is regenerating. Walk through this fire affected region, experiencing the changing landscape and native wildflowers, whilst taking in the warm spring air.
We welcome our local sponsors Shoalhaven Tourism as well as promotional partners NSW Parks and Destination Southern Highlands as part of this event and we will be announcing our chef and wine partners in the coming weeks as their culinary creations, make this a unique experience each year.
