Dietitians and fresh produce: a match made in heaven

Scenic bus tour
If you’re looking to extend your time on the Gold Coast, join us on a full day food tour on Thursday 15 August 2019 that explores the beautiful Tweed Valley and Northern Rivers region of the Gold Coast. Stopping at a range of farms and orchards along the way, you’ll get the chance to sample treats from each location, finishing with a sunset over the Gold Coast. 

If you’re interested in learning more about the health benefits of fresh Australian produce in an interactive environment, join us on the food tour. 
The tour is designed to build on the Wednesday afternoon seminar Dietitians and Horticulture—Match Made in Heaven.  The seminar is free as part of your DAA 2019 conference registration so make sure to book in when you register for the conference online.
