Enjoy a takeaway olive platter from local grower Coolmunda Olives and picnic in the bamboo labyrinth and arboretum, or eat amongst the paperbark trees. Afterwards, stroll around Lake Stower and enjoy the 20 species of Iron Bark trees and wattle. Run by Colin and Gesine Owen and daughter Katie, this third-generation olive farm hand picks their olives from 5000 trees. You can take self-guided or guided tours of the farm while they make your platter with olives, tapenade, biscuits, meat and cheese. Better still, why not have a picnic at the olive farm? Stock up on olive products from the farm shop before you depart. Just 12 km east of Inglewood on the Cunningham Highway is another prime picnic spot, Lake Coolmunda. It offers birdwatching, fishing, canoeing, sailing, or water-skiing with lakeside camping and caravan accommodation.
Feeling hungry? Take a look at the Coolmunda lunch platters, which include olive pizza, lamb sliders, olive products, homemade sweets, tea, and coffee.
Cute woolly jumpers (Dorper sheep) wandering through the olive grows and the fantastic colours in the mature aloe garden make great Instagram snaps.
