The birth of Foodscape Tours
The inspiration for Foodscape Tours was a birthday gift in 2008; a day spent on a walking tour in a Sydney suburb exploring its ethnic cuisine via retail shops, commercial kitchens and restaurants. After a fabulous day, the idea was borne to create an experience in regional NSW to showcase the best of local produce, artisan products, local wines – and the passionate personalities behind them.
Created by long time friends Karen and Jacqueline, Foodscape Tours launched on the South Coast in October 2010, having identified the opportunity to showcase this emerging food and wine destination, with the populations of Sydney and Canberra on the doorstep.
Foodscape Tours is proud to be able to offer a unique experience of the delicious South Coast. Our goal is to make the region famous for its food and wine, through innovative food and wine tours and other fun-filled foodie activities.
In March 2016 Cameron Ayrton & Troy Weigall Purchased Foodscape Tours from Jacqueline to continue the focus on Showcasing local growers, producers & artisans in the beautiful South Coast Region.
