High Country Harvest Festival,
Spring Spur Stables, Mt Beauty, VIC
Home to some of the most celebrated restaurants, wineries, breweries and gourmet food producers in all of Victoria, the high country has long been synonymous with good food and wine, and is great to visit any time of year. Food lovers have been making a beeline to Simone’s Restaurant in Bright for more than 20 years to dine out on chef Patrizia Simone's Italian fare, and to Provenance in Beechworth, which serves delicious east-meets-west cuisine that has won a swag of awards in recent years. But, it’s particularly special during High Country Harvest festival time in autumn, when the deciduous trees turn red and gold, days are gloriously sunny and nights are crisp.
