Welcome to the Tropical North Queensland Region where the rainforest meets the Great Barrier Reef and it enjoys a warm climate all year round. This region includes the Gulf Savannah and Tropical North regions. It has a very diverse array of local produce, value added products and a multicultural dining scene. Some of the key crops in this region include bananas, pineapple, mango, avocado, sugar cane, papaya as well as exotic produce such as durian, rambutan, mangosteen, vanilla, longan, lychee, coffee, cocoa, pumelo, jackfruit, mamey & black sapote, abiu, carambola, graviola, passionfruit, pitaya, sapodilla, star apple and tropical flowers. This region is also well known for its dairy, beef, wild caught seafood from the Coral Sea and Gulf of Carpentaria, as well as farmed barramundi, red claw and prawns. The rich fertile lands of the Atherton tablelands inland from Cairns is a big produce area offering premier quality coffee, tea, macadamias, pecans, cheese makers, chocolatiers and tropical fruits. As grapes don’t grow here the locals use fruit to make tropical fruit wines, so this region has the highest density of fruit wine cellar doors than anywhere else in the world. It is also the host of the annual Taste of the Tropics food festival and the annual Feast of the Senses festival.
