Savour the salty tang of a tiger prawn, slurp the sweet juice of a mangosteen or inhale the aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Tropical North Queensland is where you can indulge in new tastes or revel in fresh, familiar flavours straight from the farm.
Discover exotic foods and wines at the source on a self-drive food trail. It’s as easy as downloading an app from Taste Paradise and take off on your own gourmet adventure.
Five trails wind through diverse landscapes from the mountains to the coast taking in tropical fruit wineries, tea and coffee plantations, dairy producers, fruit, veg and aquaculture farms, ice creameries, chocolate manufacturers and enticing restaurants.
Try lychees with chorizo, take your first bite of crocodile, have a chef whip up tempura redclaw with ginger and wild lime sauce or cool off with a mango daiquiri to celebrate the end of another delicious day in the tropics.
Taste deliciously different exotic tropical fruit wines at de Brueys Boutique Wines, a unique Winery and Cellar Door amid mango orchards and natural open forest.
