Sample the Devonshire Tea, consisting of locally grown leaves served with the famous secret recipe Scones – going back four generations.
Following Lake Barrine Teahouse, we make our way through the Atherton Tablelands and stop off at Millaa Millaa Waterfall – a spectacular heritage-listed 18m plunge Waterfall, one of the most famous for its beauty in Australia. This is a short stop, perfect for a photo opportunity before heading out for lunch at Mungalli Creek Dairy Farm. Here you will taste some of the best local biodynamic cheeses Far North Queensland has to offer and enjoy the spectacular rolling hill scenery of the Atherton Tablelands.
The ultimate farm gate experience – visit Gallo Dairyland to sample the most beautiful, delicately hand crafted chocolate made from the finest Swiss couverture. Delicious!
Next stop is Shaylee’s Strawberries, where the rich red volcanic soil and temperate weather conditions are just right for the cultivation of large succulent Strawberries. Indulge in a farm fresh Strawberry Milkshake before optional souvenir shopping at Humpy Nut World – home to samples from the Tablelands region.
The afternoon will be spent nestled within a beautiful banana plantation at Mt Uncle Distillery – where you will be sampling Award Winning premium Spirits and Liqueurs. Utilizing crops grown in the fertile soil of the Atherton Tablelands, and ingredients sourced directly from the Mt Uncle Farm – this is an authentic Taste of the Tablelands.
