Atherton Tablelands Food & Wine Day Tour
Departs Thursday, Friday and Saturdays from Cairns & Palm Cove
Enjoy the tastes of Tropical North Queensland on this boutique food and wine adventure. Travel though a variety of contrasting landscapes as you discover the Atherton Tablelands.
Lush rainforest, stunning ochre Savannah plains and rich volcanic soil allowing our farmers to grow many diverse crops. Bananas, coffee, sugar cane, avocados, mangoes, macadamia nuts, citrus and much more which you will learn about as you taste your way around this amazing ‘Food Bowl’ of the Atherton Tablelands.
Living in Cairns for over 25 years this is one of my favourite tours!
