Last year’s Ballina Fine Wine and Food Festival was an absolute sell-out so hopefully you have purchased your ticket by this. If not, visit to do so on line.

Special guests this year, Paul and Blair from MKR, will demonstrate their culinary skills by providing a variety of dishes. The many far north coast restaurants, cafes, cottage industries together with food producers and wineries will alLocal Restaurants and Shoppingso be on hand to show their magic in turning local produce into delicious food. The northern rivers area is well known for the abundance of locally grown and in many cases, organically grown, produce. Much of this is grown in the Byron hinterland on the Alstonville/Wollongbar Plateau.

The ‘under cover’ event will give visitors an opportunity to sample new foods and wines by purchasing tasting plates and bottles of wine and beer to drink either at the festival or take home to enjoy.

Self contained accommodation, Pines on the Plateau Boutique Lodges are fully booked for this coming weekend, however do keep us in mind for this event next year.
