New SEQ Food Trails website

​Visitors to the Lockyer Valley can build their own personalised food trail of South East Queensland, all thanks to a new website.

Developed by the Council of Mayors SEQ and modelled on the success of the Sunshine Coast Food Trail, the Food Trails Website will allow those with a passion for food experiences to follow an authentic, year-round food tourism trail.

Lockyer Valley Mayor Tanya Milligan said that was just the beginning.

“The Food Trails Website also gives visitors the option to add seasonal product and part-time producers to their itineraries, along with key festivals, markets, cooking schools and restaurants that feature Lockyer Valley products.

“The website also links the Sunshine Coast, Moreton Bay, Redlands, Scenic Rim, Toowoomba, Brisbane and Logan regions’ food offerings, dispersing tourists across the whole South East corner of Queensland. 

“The website is the perfect platform for businesses with a tourism focus and a regional food appetite to advertise what they do and connect directly with other businesses looking for products or serious foodies wanting to explore the region and get a taste of SEQ’s renowned produce,” Mayor Milligan said. 

While Council has already uploaded a smattering of food-focused offerings to get the website operational, the onus is now on operators who wish to be included to upload content, via a form on the website.  Council will be required to approve content, qualifying operators’ eligibility via key areas such as food licensing, regular opening hours and (Lockyer Valley) location. All listings are for consideration and ultimately at the discretion of the site editor.

As well as individual operator content, the platform will allow for a visual block of fabulous food photographs to pull from the region’s Instagram account.  

“There is also capacity for stories on Places You’ll Love, Festivals/Events and Featured Trails, along with rotational stories to celebrate recipes of the region, awards and other food connections that visitors will be drawn to,” Mayor Milligan said.

The new site is available at www.seqfoodtrails.com.au​
