About Brett's Outback Tasting Adventures
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 Cairns you will thoroughly enjoy and remember. This boutique food and wine experience from Cairns 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.

A group of 10 - a good bunch :) had the pleasure of Dale’s friendly company and knowledge for the tour. Dale welcomed and looked after us for the day. Lots to learn and light hearted jokes to enjoy. All stops offered something different with views, different foods, wines and spirits. Each stop we were welcomed by the staff, no pressure to buy - but we did! Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and recommend highly. Thanks Dale!

What a great tour, led by a passionate and knowledgeable tour guide this is! Brett knows the region intimately and shares all sorts of tidbits throughout the day. The tour visits a variety of producers, some not open to the general public, all very welcoming and so proud of their produce. My favourite was definitely the first stop, Sunset Ridge. What lovely hosts and what a view! As a Cairns local, I visit the Tablelands regularly, but I learned so much today, I can’t wait to return and I highly recommend this tour if you are visiting the region.

Fantastic food and wine tour with small intimate group setting. Brett was great, and had plenty of knowledge (and theories) about the destinations and surrounding areas. All stops showcased beautiful native ingredients - standout by far was the Sunset Ridge, which supplied an array of tastings from jams, pastes, and marshmallows. The hosts were equally fantastic. We’re a younger couple (20 and 23) and still thoroughly enjoyed every minute. Highly recommend!

I have a theory (Brett’s catchphrase) that this is a great day out. We tasted so many delicious local and indigenous products. I particularly loved the jams and chutneys at our first two stops. The whole day did seem a bit rushed so I could have done without the last stop (scones and coffee at a farm which seems a bit tacky and totally geared to Chinese tourists). This would have allowed more time at some of the other places. I shut down discussions surrounding politics... always a touchy subject. Still, Brett was super knowledgeable about farming procedures and the products, so would thoroughly recommend this tour.

Brett’s day tour of Atherton Tablelands is a wonderful day out. This is a truly boutique tour as Bretts visits several local farms/producers that no other tour company visits. The hosts are so welcoming and friendly, and rightly proud of their produce. All of the locations, settings and food were really impressive. I liked this tour so much that I did it again on my next visit 3 months later and it was just as good the second time around. I highly recommend!
