Food Trail Tours out of Cairns is absolutely excellent. So many places to go and food/wine to sample. We started at a Coffee farm and discovered how coffee is processed by the owners who were brim full of expertise and friendliness and made a great cup of Coffee.
Next it was to sample fruit wines - what a range from dry to sweeter wines, liquors, ports, something to suit most tastes. Then to a macadamia nut plantation where our guide was very knowledgeable on what happens from growing, harvesting to processing and then, yes, there was that wonderful tasting experience before heading off for lunch.
Whilst the general fare offered was fish; for those who were unable or not inclined, there were agreeable options available and when the food arrived it was tasty, the best salad I have eaten for ages and all most enjoyable.
After lunch we headed to a cheese & chocolate place where the process of cheese making was shown and again that great sampling experience of a wide range of cheeses and some yummy chocolate. We then viewed the amazing curtain fig tree, the huge Kauri pines and then overlooking the beautiful Lake Barrine we had tea and fresh scones.
We arrived back in Cairns a tad tired but having had a most exhilarating day, full of interest & variety and a credit to the friendly, helpful Warwick - out guide. Our new 'dilly bags' helping provided contained numerous samples that we had purchased on route.
