Now in its fifth year, the festival will feature signature events including the Audi Gourmet Beach BBQs, Gourmet Village, Feast in the Forest and Margaret River’s Secret Garden.
Dinners, intimate master classes and demonstrations will feature high-profile guests including seven chefs from The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list and Dominique Crenn, who was named the World’s Best Female Chef in 2016.
Margaret River Gourmet Escape is also an important economic driver for the region. The 2015 festival recorded an attendance of more than 18,000 and injected more than $7.8 million into the local economy.
In 2015-16, visitors spent $9.6 billion in the State, including $4.5 billion in regional WA. Tourism WA has a strategy to increase the value of tourism to $12 billion by 2020 and supporting regional events such as Gourmet Escape will help us achieve this.
Margaret River Gourmet Escape is supported by the State Government through Tourism WA’s Regional Events Program, made possible by Royalties for Regions.
