SNOWY MOUNTAINS TRAVEL GUIDE – TO EAT

THE MENU FROM SNOWY RIVER

There was movement at the restaurant, for the word had passed around
That chef had created a new menu and had got his way,
And had joined the wild bushmen – he was had won several ‘hats’ around,
So all the customers had gathered to have their say.
All the true and noted gourmets from regions near and far
Had gathered at the restaurant that night
For bushmen from the Snowys love great food where the mountains are,
And the people all enjoyed the foods with great delight.*

*Inspired by Banjo Paterson and our thanks to Project Gutenberg.

Now it’s time for you to discover the modern-day legends of the Snowy Mountains, the emerging and the famous chefs who are making the high country a must-experience destination for food lovers. Here is a selection of legendary and new eateries for you to try.
