Food & Beverage

From charming country cafes to quintessential pub grub... exquisite fine dining, luscious wineries and quirky tea houses, the Canola Trail is a foodie's haven, filled with flavour as well as a smidge of fun (make your own giant freckle!)

It doesn't matter where on the trail you start, as each town has some spectacular choices for those hungry to explore or just hungry for a feed.

Junee

Not only can Junee Licorice and Chocolate Factory satisfy your sweet tooth with their organic delights, but with a cafe and restaurant on site, it's a great place to pop in for a meal. At the Crossing Motel, the "Roundhouse Restaurant" has a friendly-family atmosphere, and specialises in home-style, wholesome cooking using local produce. Junee's quiet streets are lined with relaxed cafes and bakeries, serving up their own inspired menus. Make sure to try the Junee Railway Station Café, Broadway Café or Junee Bakery for a light lunch, or the Commercial Hotel for pub grub.

If you've got a little more time, just outside Junee are Houlaghan’s Valley Wines, which sspecialises in Shiraz, Chardonnay and Tempranillo and Coe & Co Wines, a family owned wine producer located at Cooba East Station. Bethungra Olde School T-House is a quirky little cafe that is definitely worth the trip, and the iconic Illabo Hotel offers something for the whole family.

Coolamon

The newest flavour sensation to treat the Canola Trail is Coolamon Cheese, an impressive local cheese factory with a delicious menu of cheese and antipasto platters. The Little Rustic Pantry in Coolamon offers coffee and cake, and features a lovely line of homewares and gifts. The New Coolamon Hotel can tempt you with classic favourites, or if you're looking for a vast array of gluten free options, try Heavenly Baked or just over the road you'll find the Steve’s Bakery and Cafe.

If you're heading through to Ganmain, set your sights on Ganmain Bakery (famous for their pies) and Ganmain Cafe or head towards to Ardlethan to Ariah 62 Coffee Shop.

Temora

Choose from scrumptious light lunches, superb coffee and home baked goodies at Zest BYO or pop into the Roundabout Bakery for a freshly baked pie or cake. For something more filling, choose Shan’s Diners’ Choice, an award winning a la carte restaurant located at the Temora Bowling Club. For a Lebanese inspired taste sensation try Julez Bar & Restaurant, or enjoy a delicious bistro meal at the heritage listed federation Ariah Park Hotel, just a short scenic drive down the road.

 

With fantastic food, wine, food experiences, artisans, butchers, producers and providores, the Canola Trail holds a feast of flavours worth exploring!
