Amazing Cairns Food and Wine Experiences

Enjoy an Amazing Cairns food and wine experience like no other when travelling to Cairns and the stunning Atherton Tablelands.

Excite your taste buds and savour the flavours offered by the local producers. Family farms dot the landscape and you often have the option to tour the plantations and hear the stories behind the regional foods as they travel from paddock to plate.

Retreat to the cool Cairns rainforest

There are places where trails fade away through cool misty rainforest. They lead through lush undergrowth and soaring canopies.  

Glimpses of wildlife and all manner of birds can be seen and heard through the trees, echoing loudly over the faint but constant buzz of life. Hidden waterfalls and dramatic lookouts await those who tread these paths.

Stunning Mackay attraction - The Orchid House

When in Mackay make sure to spend some time at the Ken Burgess Display House, commonly referred to as the Orchid House.

It’s a wonderful way to spend an hour or two, exploring the large, hexagonal-shaped greenhouse in bloom.

It’s absolutely beautiful. Enter a cool oasis that’s surrounded by majestic trees and tropical gardens.

The beautiful Mareeba and the Mareeba Rodeo

Take the drive from Cairns up the mountains to Mareeba – it’s the incredibly stunning landscape that inspired James Cameron to make Avatar.

Mareeba is a beautiful melting pot of pristine rainforests, coastal ranges, rich and fertile plains filled where local farmers grow mangoes, pawpaw, coffee, macadamia nuts, sugar cane, pineapples, cashews, bananas and more.

The beautiful Palm Cove

For a getaway that’s not too far from home, you can’t go past a visit to beautiful Palm Cove.

This unique, quiet and relaxing little village offers the perfect opportunity for a weekend sea change and offers visitors a memorable tropical holiday.
