The Gascoyne

The Gascoyne region is located 900km north of Perth and stretches along close to 600km of Indian Ocean coastline. Towns within the region include Carnarvon, Exmouth, Shark Bay, Coral Bay and Gascoyne Junction.

The region is well known for growing fresh tropical fruits and other temperate climate fruit and vegetables along the Gascoyne River. Seafood is also a major industry in the Gascoyne with a variety of fish, prawns, scallops and crabs caught off the coast.

Produce availability in the Gascoyne is defined by the seasons. Between May and October the region produces an abundant array of fresh fruit and vegetables, and outside of these months very specific lines are grown (for example mango season runs from November to January). Seafood is available from March – November.  Annual weather aberrations may also have a slight affect on exact dates that specific produce is available.

Fruit: Bananas, grapes, mangoes, melons, citrus, stone fruit, avocado, pawpaw, and tomatoes

Vegetables: Capsicums, beans, corn, cucumber, zucchini, pumpkin and asparagus

The Gascoyne Food Council is a source of extensive information about the region's produce and undertakes many promotional initiatives to bring the food of the region into the city. More information here
