ANSWERS:
What do we eat?
Nourish Food Safaris are about sampling a diverse range of food and drink which may vary on each safari. Products sampled will be a set selection of items and may include: seafood, meat, dairy and wheat. If you have dietary requirements or preferences please let us know in advance so we can make substitutions where possible. If appropriate individual samples are provided, while at some venues we visit, food is shared from dishes in the middle of the table.

How much do we eat?
We provide abundant samples at each of the venues we visit on our safaris, creating a progressive feast that should satisfy most appetites. You are advised not to indulge in a large meal before going on safari with us.

How far do we walk on the safari?
Nourish Food Safaris do not require a high level of fitness. The areas of Byron Bay covered in our walking tours are not hilly. In total we cover a distance of less than 2km on our walking tours with lots of breaks to rest between.

What should I wear?
We recommend you wear clothing suitable for the weather conditions of the day and footwear that is comfortable to walk in. Nourish Food Safaris will provide umbrellas for rainy days.

Do we drink alcohol?
All of our tours may involve the consumption of some alcohol. Our ‘Bay Gourmet’ tour definitely involves the consumption of alcohol and wine drinkers will certainly enjoy the tour. For those unable to consume alcohol alternatives are available with sufficient notice.

Are the safaris always the same?
Nourish Food Safaris has more venues on its books than we can visit on one tour. As such the same tour may visit some different venues on each occasion. The food samples offered at venues are also likely to change in line with menu changes or if the chef or producer has something special to offer us. Nourish Food Safaris will, however, always deliver the same high standard of experience.

Can I bring my kids?
Our food safaris are not designed for children. Coffee, alcohol and sophisticated foods may feature on our tours and the experiences we offer are most suited to adults. If you would like your kids to share your food safari experience please contact us and we will be happy to arrange a bespoke tour more suited to young gourmets or you can take advantage of our registered child minding service (at additional cost) so you can relax and enjoy your food safari knowing your little ones are being taken care of. Please provide us with plenty of notice in either case.

What about bad weather?
Tours will generally go ahead rain, hail or shine. Sunny days and warm temperatures are the norm in Byron Bay for most of the year. In the case of wet weather, however, the great majority of our venues provide indoor or undercover areas and Nourish Food Safaris provides umbrellas as needed. Only extreme weather events may cause tours to be cancelled. In this case a full refund will be offered.

Are there toilet facilities?
The great majority of our venues have toilet facilities that are available for our use. There are also public facilities available at various locations.

Are Nourish Food Safaris accessible for all?
We aim to make our tours accessible to everybody. We are limited, however, by accessibility issues at some of the venues we visit on our tours, which may not be suitable for wheelchairs or those unable to use stairs. If accessibility is an issue for you please contact us and we will do our best to provide a solution.

Can I book a private safari?
With adequate notice we are happy to arrange private or bespoke food safaris tailored to suit your group requirements or for a special occasion. Please contact us for more information.
