Welcome to the Riverina
You may already know about the Riverina as the ‘food bowl of Australia’. Which is true – the region’s diverse range and large scale of produce grown, crafted and packaged for export is what makes this region unique.
What’s more, the Riverina is the largest wine producing area in NSW and one of the largest in Australia, with one in every four glasses of Australia’s wine coming from the fertile vines of the region.
What you may not know is that there is an up-and-coming host of local restaurateurs, chefs, café owners, brewers, wine makers, marketeers and growers who have been steadily “raising the bar” on the food, wine and agri-tourism experience on offer to visitors.
In the Riverina today you’ll find a menu of delightful restaurants featuring innovative menus, cafes with trained baristas in virtually every town and dozens of passionate, skilled producers who are creating some of the best products you’ll find anywhere in Australia. And, of course, much of what you’ll see, taste and smell is made with the Riverina’s gorgeous fresh produce.
And, there are many more great culinary experiences to be found right across the region.
