Thousands of food and wine fanatics from all over the country flocked to Noosa over the weekend to take in the Noosa Food and Wine Festival 2017. Over 10,000 visitors attended more than 70 events across the four-day festival, with many events sold out. A total of 45 visiting chefs from Australia’s best restaurants, as well as international guests, cooked up a storm for festival goers.

“This year’s Noosa Food and Wine Festival has been a true success and has set the bar for what can be achieved in future years,” said Festival Director Maria Crews. “We held more than 70 events across the festival, in many different locations and there was something for everyone to enjoy, no matter what their palette desired. It was wonderful to see Noosa come alive.” The Noosa Woods was transformed into a wine and produce village, where some of the region’s best producers, cheese makers and saluministi came together to offer an array of tastings.

In a festival first, The Noosa Woods hosted the ultimate Festival music takeover on Saturday night and Sunday afternoon. Some of Asutralia’s top dance music artists teamed up for the festival weekend.
