Hi my name is Brett and I'd like to tell you about my delicious and fantastic Food and Wine tasting adventure showcasing the spectacular Atherton Tablelands. A Foodie tour from Port Douglas you will thoroughly enjoy and remember.
This unique food and wine experience from Port Douglas will be tasting some of the best food and wine that the Atherton Tablelands has to offer. We will take you through a variety of contrasting landscapes from lush rainforest to stunning ochre savannah plains. The rich volcanic soil allows farmers to grow many and diverse crops from Bananas, coffee, sugar cane, avocados, mangoes, macadamia nuts, citrus and more which you will learn about as we taste our way around the regions 'Food Bowl.'
Sit back and relax , take in the beautiful views as we take you on a fascinating and tasty journey through another gem of Far North Queensland.
Stop 1: Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park.
Our first stop is Tjapukai (which means 'Rainforest People') where we cross a bridge over their lake to feed the native turtles as we head to our exclusive setting. Here we enjoy freshly baked damper and indigenous jams with macadamia nut butter and a glorious platter of exotic tropical fruits (depending on what's in season) and well known favourites whilst listening to the Aboriginal Dance music in the distance.
Stop 2 De'bruey's Boutique Tropical Winery.
We then head up the Kuranda Range to De Bruey's Boutique Wines located near Mareeba on a 15ha mango orchard cradled between the peaks of the Great Dividing Range. All wines are made on site using a blend of tradition and innovation which produces high quality wines from a rich diversity of tropical fruits.
Sit on the back deck sipping deliciously different tropical fruit wines, liqueurs, cream liqueurs and Ports whilst overlooking the beautiful surrounds of gum trees waterfall, terraces and lake.
Stop 3: Mount Uncle Distillery
10 minutes down the road we arrive at Mount Uncle distillery, North Queensland's first and only distillery. Here we stop for a delicious fresh lunch of local produce and a tasting of 2 of their new boutique beers, then off to the distillery to taste some of their award winning liqueurs and spirits, then take a wander round this stunning property nestled in coffee and banana plantations, with beautiful gardens, friendly animals.
Stop 4 : Gallo Dairyland
We now head towards the historic village of Atherton. Driving through this thriving hub a patchwork of amazing farmland and rolling green hills appear before us. We are on our way to a fully operational dairy farm spread across 1000 acres of rich red volcanic soil with a gourmet cheese factory.
Here we will taste a selection of their delicious cheeses whilst gazing out over the picturesque landscape. Meet some friendly animals before heading back to Mareeba through a variety of diverse crops.
Stop 5 : Jaques Family Coffee Plantation
Next stop is to Jaques Family coffee plantation-the 3rd generation; with 85,000 Arabica Coffee trees growing in the rich soils they produce a smooth and vibrant flavour unique only to the remarkable location.Relax in the air-conditioned theatre to watch the fascinating history of the Jaques Family and also an enchanting insight in to the finer details of coffee from the tree to the cup.We stroll through the gardens and finish our stop with a delicious cup of Jaques coffee made 'just as you like it'
Stop 6 : Platypus Hut - Queensland wines and beers
And if that is not enough, we head across the savannah 'Outback' ,past giant termite mounds and classic red dirt to a unique 160 acre Private Property.
Here you can soak up the stunning rainforest and pristine environment which is a sanctuary for bird and animal species. Watch out for a passing Kangaroo and head down to 'The Platypus Hut' where you can sit in this tranquil setting as the sun goes down and watch for dive bombing Kingfishers and the elusive Platypus (or dip your toes into the most beautiful mountain stream whilst tasting some Queensland wines & beer and homemade Macadamia nut Dukkah.
