More restaurants and cafes are capitalising on the fantastic array of fresh local produce found in the High Country. Particularly around King Valley, Bright, Beechworth and Rutherglen are restaurants and wineries specialising in the paddock-to-plate philosophy, where you can sample local meat, wild trout, cheeses and house-grown items.
