Tourism WA has worked with Qantas to put the Margaret River Region firmly in the “foodie” spotlight as the airline promotes the next level of its food and wine program.

Earlier this year, Qantas epiQure added gourmet foods to complement the wines already available through its online food and wine community. Today, the collection of around 70 products sourced from wine regions across Australia, will be officially showcased at Vasse Felix winery.  

The guests, including Qantas Frequent Flyer Platinum One and epiQure members, will stay on for the weekend to enjoy all the region has to offer.

Tourism WA’s Executive Director of Markets and Partnerships Gwyn Dolphin said it was a coup for Margaret River to be chosen as the event destination.

“Qantas epiQure members are exactly the type of people our research tells us are likely to travel from the Eastern States for a South West holiday; they’re affluent, often have finished raising their families and are looking for a holiday where they can indulge in fine food and wine”, Mr Dolphin said.

“Not only will today’s long table lunch highlight the Margaret River Region as a great food and wine travel destination, the continued advertising and inclusion of South West produce in the Qantas epiQure online catalogue will keep reinforcing that among Qantas Frequent Flyers.”

WA offerings through the Qantas epiQure program include products from Eagle Bay Olives, Bahen and Co. Chocolate and Olio Bello. 

Partnerships such as the Qantas epiQure program are just one way Tourism WA promotes the State to potential travellers.

“We are working hard to attract more holiday and leisure visitors to WA,” Mr Dolphin said.

“Today’s event ties in well with other efforts such as Margaret River Gourmet Escape, Tourism Australia’s Restaurant Australia campaign and our own new brand platform that will be rolled out later this year.”
