Don’t miss the North Coast Festival of Flavour on Friday 3rd, Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th June 2022. The producers, farmers, restaurateurs, brewers, distillers and winemakers of this lush region are serving up the very best of the North Coast with a series of exciting events and experiences. From Byron Bay to the Tweed, Lismore to Richmond Valley, the Coffs Coast to the Macleay Valley, and from Port Macquarie to the Barrington Coast, discover long lunches, wine tasting, brewery hopping, flame-grilled outdoor feasts, seafood cruises and much more.

The ‘open weekend’ festival will provide visitors to the region with an abundance of options of ‘foodie’ experiences from sampling the region’s fresh organic produce at local markets and farm gates, to brewery and distillery tastings and world-class eateries up and down the North Coast.

To plan for and to make the most of the event visitors are encouraged to visit the North Coast Flavour Trails, a dynamic digital platform that gives consumers the ability to explore the vast array of options available across the North Coast. The North Coast Flavour Trails platform will house all of the relevant information on the array of events happening across the North Coast from 3-5 June 2022 and will also be the ultimate assistant on the day, highlighting special offers and events, mapping routes between venues and providing all the tools you need to have an amazing weekend sampling the best of North Coast food, beverages and produce!

Michael Thurston, General Manager of Destination North Coast states, “as excited as we are about igniting the taste buds of visitors to the North Coast the event is also an opportunity to provide support to an industry that has suffered significantly throughout Covid-19 and the recent flooding events. In view of this we wanted to create an event that enables all relevant venues and operators to participate and benefit. In addition, we want consumers to explore our region far and wide uncovering the depth of amazing food, beverage and agri-tourism experiences the North Coast offers!”

This project received grant funding from the Australian Government, under the Recovery for Regional Tourism program administered by Austrade. The festival is proudly supported by the NSW Government through its tourism and major events agency, Destination NSW, in alignment with its ambition to make NSW the premier visitor economy of the Asia Pacific.
