Tastes of Leeton, Leeton
Leeton hospitality is never more evident than in the ‘Tastes of Leeton’ presentation that leaves an indelible first impression on visitors to this NSW country town.
Tastes of Leeton is a successful initiative recently devised by Leeton Tourism to enhance the overall visitor experience. Tourism staff collaborated closely with Leeton industry stakeholders to turn the strategy into a winning reality. Key partners include Leeton-based SunRice, The Daily Drinks Company, Walnuts Australia, Pacific Fresh and Freedom Foods.
According to Brent Lawrence, Leeton Tourism Manager, Tastes of Leeton demonstrates excellence in food tourism and passion and pride by locals eager to share the Leeton story.
The educational hands-on presentation is held daily at the Leeton Visitors Information Centre from 11.30am or by special appointment. Families, travellers, and students, are treated to a guided talk highlighting the region’s history, rich agricultural diversity, and the latest news of participating industries, including citrus, walnuts, gluten-free products and rice. The presentation is followed by a tasting of food and produce samples manufactured by Leeton’s major commercial industries.
Attendees don’t leave empty handed as they are given Tastes of Leeton show bags filled with product information and snacks. This warm welcome is guaranteed to entice visitors to return to Leeton sooner rather than later!
