If you’re in W.A. and have been itching to travel but can’t wait ’til that border business is over, how about visiting some place spesh in your own back yard (well, your own state).
Chittering is a rural region less than an hour’s drive north-east of Perth. It hugs the beautiful Brockman River between the towns of Gingin and Toodyay.
That’s probably why you’ve heard of its name: on your way to one of those popular places. Also because the name ‘Chittering’ is so darn cute.
It has its own food, beer and wine festival, too!
A Taste of Chittering will this year boast an eclectic and diverse program showcasing local food, wine, beer, produce, and art of the Chittering region with plenty of market stalls, pop-up dining options, cooking demonstrations, live music and family entertainment.
The Grower’s Marketplace will offer the best of local seasonal produce, flowers, baked goods and sweet treats. Sample and purchase region specialties such as gourmet fungi, black garlic, fresh honey, preserves and pickles, olive oil, spices and organic teas.
This year, exciting new additions to the program include guided electric bike tours where guests can soak up Chittering’s stunning landscape – and right now is the time to see it with Spring wildflowers already in bloom.
There’ll be a beer brewing competition – open to all amateur brewers, with the winning beer made in a batch for release by Outback Brewing Co.
