Eat, Drink, Explore - Dining and Restaurants in the Gympie Region

With quaint cafes , casual dining experiences & succulent fresh locally caught seafood, you are spoilt for choice in the Gympie region.   You could be sitting on the beach, by a lake or lying in a field with a picnic basket brimming with freshly baked artisan bread, local cheeses & preserves , fruit chutneys and cured meats; or relaxing on the terrace of a seafood restaurant, savouring fresh fish from the sea; or you may be tantalising your palate enjoying Gympie Gold food produce. Whichever your pleasure, the regional flavours of Gympie are as diverse as they are superb!

From ocean to earth, farm gate to plate, Gympie’s regional food industry is as sensational and diverse as its landscape. Once famous for its discovery of gold, this veritable food bowl is now better known for the ‘gold’ it yields above ground – Gympie Gold Regional Produce!

The region’s hinterland harvest includes a wide range of seasonal fruit and vegetables, including farm fresh olives, avocadoes, citrus and small crops. You can also find organic growers, local wine and cheese producers, red claw and crayfish farmers and producers of export-quality beef among the pastures, surrounded by the many tributaries of the Mary River. Meanwhile, on the coast, Tin Can Bay trawlers and Rainbow Beach fishermen source prized fresh local seafood from the pristine waters of the Great Sandy Straits and nearby waterways.

With such quality, fresh local produce in abundance, it’s little wonder why the Gympie region is also home to many high end, value-adding processors and distributors. They range from multi-national food companies to boutique enterprises, specialising in homemade chutneys, gourmet sauces and even organic skincare treatments.

Local growers, producers, retailers, processors, cafes and restaurants – they all make up the rich tapestry that is Gympie gold and you can find them at

So come and get a TASTE of the Gympie region.
