Berries, burritos, burgers and home brews

The scene at Forest Secrets yesterday.
WHILE much of Tasmania sweltered yesterday, an enthusiastic crowd enjoyed cruisy tunes and tasty eats under shady gum trees at National Park. The occasion was the first Derwent Valley Tasmania Wild Food Festival.

Hosted by Forest Secrets at their scenic location nestled between Gordon River Rd and the Tyenna River just outside Mt Field National Park, the festival provided a chance to experience Tasmanian foods that are harvested and caught in the wild.

Food choices ranged from native berries, leatherwood honey, gourmet trout and eel, to grubs, choc-coated insects, wallaby and kangaroo burgers and more - all offered by local community groups or businesses.

Ice-creams in forest flavours and locally brewed soft-drinks and beers rounded out the menu and a program of live entertainment contributed to a great day out.
