Geographe Crush

The long established Geographe Crush expands its format in 2014 with three days to taste wine and food, explore the region and enjoy the new events on offer. Geographe is one of Western Australia’s nine official wine regions.

On Friday night, 7 November the event opens with a Welcome Function at the Sky Bar in the newly extended Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre, where attendees can enjoy the recent Geographe Wine Show award winning wines. The wines will be matched with specially prepared regional produce.

The ticketed cocktail event will provide a fantastic overview of the quality of both the food and wine now available from the south west of WA.

The main exhibition which has been moved to the small town of Boyanup (in the Shire of Capel), is just 20 minutes from Bunbury and will be staged on Saturday, 8 November from 12noon to 7pm. The move of both the date and venue will provide a more rural backdrop for the event on a convenient Saturday timeslot.

Geographe Crush

On Sunday, 9 November, up to 10 smaller events will give visitors the chance to explore the region with events in Ferguson Valley, Donnybrook, Harvey, Capel and Bunbury.

Geographe Crush Food and Wine Festival celebrates the wine, food and attractions of the south west wine region of Geographe, extending from Harvey in the north, Collie, Dardanup and Donnybrook in the east and Capel and Busselton in the South centering on the main city of Bunbury.

The region is young in a wine sense (just under 20 years old) and is building a reputation for its wines, wineries and attractions and is less than a two hour drive from Perth. It also boasts one of the more scenic and enjoyable wine sub regions in the state being Ferguson Valley within 30 minutes of the City of Bunbury. Wineries are now producing some excellent main stream wines as well as leading with a range of the newer alternative varietals.

The exhibition will see a mix of local food and wine companies along with invited south west exhibitors. Alternative varietals will be featured for the first time with some of the newer styles such as Tempranillo, Sangiovese, Viognier and more. The south west is known for its fresh and clean produce and visitors can expect a selection of local foods to sample as well as a great range of street food to enjoy on the day.

To ensure visitors can enjoy a full day out, the exhibition will host cooking demonstrations featuring local chefs preparing menus from regional foods. Wine appreciation seminars will see both Geographe wines and a selection of WA alternative varietals presented by passionate winemakers.

Live entertainment from the main stage will ensure people can relax and enjoy tapas styled meals with a wine which will be available to buy by the glass. Wine is also available to taste and purchase to take home.

On Sunday, the region opens up! Events are planned for people who are keen to take in more of what is on offer, whether it be a lazy Sunday afternoon with friends, more tasting of fine wine with food or having a meal at one of the many restaurants.

Bunbury will host a brand new, unique event, St Tropez Beach Club. The French styled event takes in the northern facing views of Koombana Bay while visitors can enjoy wine and food with that special French flavor. Geographe was named after its French explorers and discoverers and the event will celebrate the links we have with the European nation.

Other special events will pop up at numerous regional venues, giving visitors the perfect excuse to round off and indulgent weekend in Geographe.

  1. Hi Johanna, while I wouldn’t be able to attend this is a fantastic give-away you are offering! I always forget that as we head into our chilly weather, then winter that you folks are embracing your Spring and Summer on the horizon. The festival sounds fantastic and of course, you know me, I would absolutely love all of the food tasting and cooking demonstrations. Best of luck to those folks who enter and can attend! 🙂

  2. Hi Jo – this sounds like a marvellous event. The experience of sampling the wines of the region and indulging in a little gastronomic delight with local produce sounds soooo tempting. I’d love to come down there for the weekend and enjoy this event in the beautiful rural setting at Boyanup. What more could you ask for – the zing of the local wines, the palate pleasing regional produce and the energising yet peaceful Australian outdoors. Please put my name in your barrel 🙂

  3. I’d love to put a fluffy spin on the Geographe Crush festival with a post on my travel, food and lifestyle blog Fluffy Towel (www.fluffytowel.com) – for those who are as attached to their fluffy towels as they are to their adventures.

  4. Hello Pam! Yes it’s a wonderful event. I’ve been several years’ running, sadly going to miss this one 🙁 But they seem to get better and better. Righto – you’re in the barrel for a chance to win! Good luck!

  7. The Geographe Crush Food and Wine Festival has long intrigued me. It blends terrific variety and lots for the taste buds. I hope everyone who partakes enjoys to the max. BTW: this is not an entry: I’ll leave that to those whose imagination is in a higher gear at the moment!

  8. Thanks Wanda – it’s a wonderful country festival isn’t it? And it’s growing.
