Gardens and gourmet food seem to go hand in hand. Whether you’re a bit of a foodie or grow your own vegetables …. or both, then a tour that includes these 2 elements in an idyllic location may be just the thing you’re looking for.
I’m taking a group with me to Norfolk Island to join media personality & horticulturist, Adam Woodhams as he hosts his Gardeners’ & Gourmets’ Delight tour for the Travel Centre Norfolk Island …. and it’s going to be a cracker!
Have a look at what you can expect …..
