Food & Wine

With so many food & wine options to choose from, be prepared to eat your way through the Manning Valley!

Originally founded on agriculture, the Manning Valley is renowned for fresh local produce and is a foodie’s delight. From melt in your mouth organic beef from the hills of Wingham to the fresh seafood and oysters direct from our streams and oceans, there is something to suit any palate - and wines to match!

This fresh produce has inspired chefs in the region to create menus that are sure to tantalise those taste-buds and there are dining options to suit all tastes (and budgets). From gourmet restaurants and funky casual eateries to good old-fashioned pub food, you won't go hungry during your stay with us.

The Manning Valley also plays host to numerous farmer’s markets over the weekends, where you'll be able to pick up tasty mushrooms, juicy tomatoes, crunchy macadamias, the freshest eggs, sweet berries and other produce straight from the farm.
