Know your neighbours
The human need to belong is real - we thrive in tribe. But according to a survey by the Australian Red Cross, 1 in 5 Aussies suffer with loneliness.
Make a difference - get to know your neighbours. Say hello, stop for a chat, ask if everything’s OK. A simple act of friendliness could make a big impact to the wellbeing of someone in your community.
Local fact:The wordwontakalowa is used as a greeting by the traditional owners of the Hunter region, the Awabakal people.
Eat well, be well
Poor health has far-reaching implications - from family around us right through to the national economy. So it’s a no-brainer to aim for good health, and good health starts with good nutrition. Optimal nutrition is readily available in produce consumed as close to harvesting as possible. That’s wherelocal comes in. Food that’s travelled from just up the road can get to your table quicker, full of the exact flavour and nutrients nature intended.
It’s also worth noting that most of our producers grow their crops with organic principles, meaning you miss out on questionable chemicals may that trigger food sensitivities and toxic build-up.
Prioritise eating foods grown close to home and as nature intended, and enjoy your health.
Local fact: We supply fare from over44 local producers
Favour the home game
Friends, we really are lucky. Within the Hunter Valley lie a myriad ofproducers passionate about offering the best they possibly can, for us to enjoy.
Pay this dedication forward by favouring local fare over goods produced far away and by faceless corporations, quite possibly owned offshore.
Your spend supports your neighbours and helps provide them with an honest living. Now that feels pretty good, doesn’t it?
Local fact:If everyone in Australia ate just one locally grown meal a week, it would save 4 million barrels of oil each year! That’s enough to fuel the entire country of Italy for two whole days!
OK, so while we wouldn’t refuse an exotic holiday in a far-flung destination any day of the week, around here is pretty good too. Our local region has amazing walking tracks, entertainment venues, lakes, parks beaches, cafes, dining, beaches and more!
Add it all up and you’ll agree it’s totally possible to have a cracking staycation right here!
When you staylocal, you’ll save petrol and accommodation costs - and not to mention hours in the car with squabbling kids (or it that just me?)

We’ve got so much good stuff happening right under our noses! Be proud people, and spread the word. For example, we bet when you cook withlocal food, you’ll get compliments on the amazingly good REAL taste. Tell ‘em the story behind it! Get to know thelocals who make it possible.
You’ll create an unstoppable ripple of goodness simply by talking and sharing what you know, and perhaps inspire others to follow your lead.
