“We have such a huge range of produce — sugarcane, corn, potatoes, peanuts, garlic, avocadoes, blueberries, dragon fruit, citrus, mushrooms, raspberries, mangos, bananas, pineapples, papaya, coffee, tea, native bush fruits and so much more,” Corporate and Community Services general manager Hilary Jackson said.

“Beef cattle production is extensive and our dairy industry produces fresh and fermented milk, yogurts, cheeses and chocolates.

“The best part is we can all get in on the action! We hold a free monthly Food Safari to showcase Tropical North Queensland food.

“Not only will you get to taste fresh produce and local niche food products, we’ll also show you where you can buy it fresh from the farm, and how to prepare it.

The Food Safari events are held at the Atherton Tablelands Information Centre between 10am and 12noon on the third Thursday of the month through to September, starting on 18 April.
