What people are saying about Far North Queensland

It was a wonderful experience to travel out here and see the places we did in the time that we had. The people that we met were only to happy to share their gorgeous products and stories, the tasting experience was enjoyable and the information about the area shared by Brett was top notch! Brett engaged us in the process and made sure everyone was comfortable and enjoying the day as much as he was.

Was great to have Dale, a local guide with heaps of historical knowledge of the areas we visited and able to tell how the place names came to be called. The food was amazing found the wineries a bit underwhelming. Very well organised and time at each place was just right ✅.

Good day out to taste some local food and also get your bearings and see the landscape. Guide really knew his info.

Brett was great! Very knowledgeable and he made it enjoyable..: even if we had to wait til later on lol
