Price : From $153

Duration: 9 hours

Love delicious foods and wine? Now you can explore and enjoy all kinds of tropical foods and wine at Brett’s Outback Tasting Adventures! As you join this trip to Australia that’s waiting for you in Port Douglas Queensland, Australia, you’ll experience the best the Atherton Tablelands must show.

With a maximum of 12 passengers, this food and wine boutique can have you experience some of the best and tastiest food and wine from the Cairns. Join this memorable adventure, one of the greatest luxury trips to Australia, as we bring you along through a variety of contrasting landscapes, from lush rainforests to gorgeous ochre savannah plains. Did you know that the rich volcanic soil allows hardworking farmers to grow many diverse crops? Coffee, bananas, avocados, sugar canes, macadamia nuts, mangoes, different citruses, and more! You’ll learn and explore more as we taste our way around the ‘Food Bowl’ region.

In addition to our Cairns Australia vacation, you’ll join us at the Sunset Ridge Farm, which is a family run and owned business. Several varieties of native fruits are grown, including lemon aspen and Davidson plum. You can also sample a broad selection of homemade breakfast foods before continuing the adventure to the outskirts of Malanda, so keep your taste buds ready for more tasting! What other goodness will our taste buds experience, you ask? Unique tastes of Australian rainforest fruits, including Gallo cheeses and their condiments, which are made from the locally grown Davidson plum, lemon aspen, rainforest tamarind, and lillypilly. Also enjoy a native fruit cocktail and make sure to give the Queensland red or white wine a try as you overlook the Johnston River!

Platypus are difficult to come by, but you’ll definitely get the opportunity to explore the Australian Platypus Park, which is home to a thriving and growing population of platypus. After a short walk and followed by lunch, you’ll get to see these adorable creatures! Continuing with our taste bud adventures, enjoy handcrafted smoked products, combined with a blend of local Australian native spices and herbs. This includes red claw (Yabby), crocodile, and kangaroo with fresh local salads, which are topped off with a boutique beer, lemon myrtle tea, and dragon fruit cider. Delicious!

As we continue our adventure to the village of Atherton, we’ll visit a dairy farm spread over acres of rich volcanic soil as selections of handcrafted chocolates and gourmet cheese factory are offered. Of course, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase the delightful cheeses and try irresistible filled chocolates whilst gazing out over the stunning landscape.

We all love a shopping and tasting treat, so stop by at ‘The Humpy’ for freshly harvested produce direct from the growers, including everything from tropical fruits to vegetables and variety of dried fruits, nuts, sauces, and jams! Another great news is that organic and gluten free produce are also available to your liking. Seasonal fruits and several different flavors of hot local peanuts and macadamia nuts are waiting for you to try. There is plenty of time to peruse the quirky grocery store, so you’ll have the opportunity to purchase tasty treats for the rest of your Cairns holidays before transferring back to your Cairns hotel.
