LOOKING FOR LOCAL PRODUCE?
A drive through region will show you just want you expect to find by way of local produce. Fresh produce – watermelons, dragonfruit and local garlic just to name a few. For something to sink your teeth into – why not try locally grown beef, lamb and pork. You won’t be disappointed.
Look out for the Taste Western Downs stickers on participating retailers.
