The joys to be had across Cairns and Queensland as a whole are there for all to see, to the point where it’s quickly establishing itself as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Southern Hemisphere. A large part of that falls onto the shoulders of the Great Barrier Reef, but in our view, there’s a whole lot more to this city than initially meets the eye.
Food experiences in Cairns tend to be pretty special, if only because they’re so diverse and unique. A perfect example of that would be the private helicopter tour that not only allows you to go reef hopping, but also throws in a gourmet picnic lunch on the beach for good measure. It’s as if you go from one extreme to the other, making it a fantastic day out for all the family.
The Atherton Tablelands also have a role to play in food tours with there being an incredible food & wine tasting adventure that runs from the heart of Cairns all the way through to the Tablelands.
Last but not least we have the Australian outback food tasting tour that stretches from Cairns into the wilderness, and trust us when we say this is one trip that’ll really reinvent what it means to experience life in Australia.
The wonderful thing about food tours is that they’re so expansive and there are no real limits to what can be achieved. Sometimes, though, it can be equally as nice to sit down and have a civilized meal over dinner - whether it be against the backdrop of a sunset or in the Cairns Aquarium.
Australians are known for enjoying a drink from time to time too, which is why the wine and beer tastings are often rated so highly by locals and visitors alike.
