Food Trail Tours
Take a food tour to discover the tastes of Queensland. The Highlander Trail tour visits both the wet and dry tropics and the towns of Mareeba, Tolga and Yungaburra. The Mareeba Food Trail concentrates more on the so-called dry tropics of the northern highlands. Both offer lunch and a variety of experiences and tastings, such as visits to macadamia and coffee plantations. It is an interesting experience to meet local farmers, many of whom have lived in the area for several generations and have adapted to changing global conditions by returning from sugarcane or tobacco to coffee, which has a long history reaching back to the early 20th century. Tropical fruit plantations and dairies are also producing liqueurs and ice-creams, cheeses and quality chocolates.
