gas•tron•o•my (gæˈstrɒn ə mi) 
n. the art or science of good eating.

Synonomous with gastronomy, the stunning Gascoyne region is situated approximately 900km north of Perth in Western Australia. A horticultural and pastoral region abundant with tropical fruits, succulent seafood and a vast array of temperate climate fruit and vegetables, it is where art meets science in the world of good eating. 


Catch a taste of the great life as you follow the Gascoyne Food Trail, visit the popular Gascoyne Growers’ Market, or time your travels to coincide with the annual celebrations of the Gascoyne Food Festival. Visit the home of the original Lunchbox Banana, try your luck fishing on the iconic One Mile Jetty or get up close and personal with a whale shark (not for consumption). There’s plenty to do, and eat, in the Gascoyne – we hope you enjoy exploring the gastronomic pleasures of our oasis at the edge of the world.
