Mondo Travel Launch the Margaret River Gourmet Escape

Mondo - New Zealand’s most innovative travel company is proud to announce the Margaret River Gourmet Escape. An incredible culinary quest happening this November a short distance from Perth in Western Australia.

Mondo Travel Marketing Manager, Gordon Bayne, says: “The Margaret River Gourmet Escape is now recognised as the largest Gourmet Tourism event in our part of the world. It is the latest marketing campaign and strategy for Tourism Australia’s #RESTAURANTAUSTRALIA.

“Mondo prides itself on selling more than just plane tickets and hotel rooms,” Gordon says. “Travel with us is about really experiencing a destination – and guiding our clients towards sampling the amazing cuisine, it’s all about ‘customer experience’”.

“One way to a travellers’ heart is through their stomachs and our Margaret River Gourmet Escape gives travel enthusiasts the chance to try some incredible local dishes from some of Australia’s top chefs including Matt Stone.”
