Clear your diary from June 29 through to July 7, because Scenic Rim Eat Local Week has unveiled the 2019 program – and every event is a must-attend!

Featuring more than 90 events from Canungra to The Lost World, Beaudesert to Boonah, Scenic Rim Eat Local Week is the ultimate backstage pass to the farms, wineries and food stories of the region.
