I’ve always said that the only way to survive a Canberra winter is to get out, even if it’s just for an extra long weekend! I’m originally from QLD so the sunshine and sea will always be some of my favourite things. We’re in the midst of the coldest time of the year in Canberra and it’s not too late to plan your winter escape. Even if you don’t live in Canberra, if a warm, island destination (otherwise known as paradise) is where you want to be then Hamilton Island is the perfect escape for you. We went there earlier in the year and had the best time exploring the island! Continue reading Escape to Hamilton Island

Winter in Canberra is a truly beautiful time of year. The leaves have fallen and there is a definite winter chill in the air. Dishes are becoming richer, and Canberrans are searching for mid-week feasts to stay warm. Winter is also a time to celebrate fresh seasonal produce, and that is exactly what Il Covo did recently at their pear-themed dinner.
Eat Canberra and Rainbow Nourishments have joined forces to bring you a winter-themed wholefoods plant-based feast! This pop-up dinner will be held at Local Press Café, a Canberra brunch hot spot, and will showcase incredible local wholefood businesses that don’t have a shop front.

One of the many things I love about Eat Canberra is that I get to meet passionate, interesting people who love food as much as I do! Then I get to share the story with you.

There are many things that I love about Canberra, including its proximity to major cities, beaches, the bushland, picturesque mountains and gorgeous landscapes. Within 20 mins your can find yourself in New South Wales and within several hours you can even find yourself in Victoria.

It’s Aussie Wine Month this month so we thought that now would be the perfect time to share our experience with you. Continue reading Explore Rutherglen: Tastes of Rutherglen Food & Wine Festival
