1. From Cairns: Atherton Tablelands Food and Wine Tasting Tour

Journey to the Atherton Tablelands which is located 1 hour’s drive from the city via the scenic Gillies Highway. Discover a cool highlands where you will sample some tropical fruit skewers and enjoy a special coffee or local tea at an 80-year old lakeside teahouse. Arrive in the historic village of Atherton for a tasting and shopping treat at “The Humpy,” the best place to go for freshly harvested produce straight from the growers. Marvel at the array of vegetables, tropical fruits and hundreds of varieties of nuts, dried fruits and locally produced jams and sauces. Enjoy some seasonal fruits and different hot peanuts and macadamia nuts, and get some time to browse to make any purchases. Continue to the Mount Uncle distillery to taste some of their award-winning liqueurs and spirits, and sample their new boutique beer before a delicious lunch of local produce with more beer or a glass of wine. Wander around the stunning property nestled in coffee and banana plantations and meet the friendly animals. Venture down a secret bush track to De Bruey's Boutique Wines on a mango orchard between the peaks of the Great Dividing Range. Learn how they make high quality wines from tropical fruits and sample 15 different tropical fruit wines, liqueurs, cream liqueurs and ports! Move on to the Jacques Family coffee plantation and get an insight into the finer details of coffee, from the tree to the cup, in the air-conditioned theater. Stroll through the coffee bushes and gardens, and end with a cup of Jacques coffee made just as you like it and served with homemade scones with jam and cream. Head to The Rainforest Retreat to watch the sun go down as you sip some Queensland wines and beers or dip your toes in a beautiful mountain stream before heading back to Cairns.

We were picked up on time from our hotel and immediately put at ease by Brett introducing us to everyone on the bus. We were taken to places a little off the beaten track so to speak which was great as we learned a bit of local history and the places we were taken to were just magical! The food and wine were local and delicious and we learned so much about them. The views were spectacular. Varied venues, no lack of food and we met a great group of people. No pressure to purchase anything. This is a full day excursion, bring your hat and sunnies and comfortable shoes. We highly recommend this tour. Brett the guide is so knowledgeable and enjoyed sharing it with us. We appreciated his passion for the region.

The best day ever!

What an amazing day out with Brett in one of the most beautiful parts of the world! Brett's local knowledge was second to none and his sense of humour even better. We tasted many local delights and visited some of the best local providers of fine fair Far North Quessland has to offer. Thanks Brett for a wonderful day. Ange Manocchio - Perth
