A Food Lovers Guide to Tropical North Queensland

Tropical North Queensland isn't all about action, adventure and animals, you know! The region is also home to some spectacular food and wine experiences which will leave you craving more. A strong variation in land and climate across the region, tropical delicacies are available year-round. Here's something to whet your appetite...

 

Beginning in the city of Cairns, you'll find a superb selection of gourmet international restaurants offering anything and everything you can imagine. For a memorable dining experience be sure to settle down at one of the more intimate restaurants lining the coast, with outdoor dining and a grand view of the ocean, your meal is bound to taste that extra bit special. For the freshest food going, head to Rusty's Market to sample an authentic and exotic combination of sights and smells made by only the best local products. 

 

 

Head up to Cairns' Northern Beaches area and you'll find picturesque Palm Cove, a small seaside community with beachfront restaurants boasting views which bring many a wedding and a function round this way. This is the spot to try some Australian seafood, which is plucked from the very ocean you set your eyes upon and is unlikely to be beaten. You'll also find a fine selection of bars along this way including The Beach Shack which hosts live music and serves wood-fired pizzas. Undoubtedly popular, you'll need to book weeks in advance to experience it!

 

Venture slightly south and away from the coast and you'll discover the Atherton Tablelands, highlands almost 1,000 metres above the coastal plain and a rich gastronomic heritage too. Here, you'll also be able to enjoy fresh fish, but catch it yourself this time at Tarzali Lakes Smokehouse Cafe. For something little sweeter though, check out Daintree Estates where some of the finest Australian chocolate is made. Surrounded by sugarcane plantations and dairy farms, this is as Australian as it gets!

 

 

Need something to wash all this down with? The Atherton Tablelands still has you covered! The area serves up a great selection of fine coffee with plantations and cafes alike, along with the chance to take time out to enjoy the views from one of the stylish teahouses here. Fancy a tipple? Fancy something different too? Head to the Golden Drop Winery and savour the taste of still and sparkling wines made from cultivated Kensington red mangoes for an entirely new experience. 

 

 

If you want to sample the very best from one spot though, you'll want to time your visit to tie in with a food festival. Two of the best are Taste Port Douglas and the Palm Cove Reef Feast, which feature a host of guest chefs, wine makers, brewers and musicians to make for a thoroughly enjoyable weekend indulging in the finest cuisine in Tropical North Queensland!
