What a great day this was! Warwick's knowledge of the local area was reflected in his excellent commentary... As he said himself he knows a little about a lot! The small group experience allowed for a personalised service that catered for those with special requirements. The places we visited were well chosen, and although the winery wasn't to my liking...

Started well, with the pick up on time, if not early, and then a day not to be missed in the hinterlands of Cairns. The contrast with the coast was evident once we climbed the hills and left the sticky heat behind ... super farmlands, great and knowledgable growers and guide, loved the macadamia nuts (and only wish you could...

We thoroughly enjoyed the overall experience, which was enhanced by the company we had on board the bus. There were definite highlights to the day. Lake Barrine was great, the curtain fig tree and Kauri pines, and the macadamia farm was outstanding. The farmers passion, explanations and pride in the presentation of his property was brilliant. We found him most... More

What a treat to share time with a wonderful group of van mates! There were 6 of us in total. This personalized food and drink experience was enhanced by the knowledge and personality of owner/operator, Warwick. He has planned every step of the way with thoughtfulness to make the day very enjoyable. He is attentive to all, as we traveled... More

Warwick makes this tour excellent. He is passionate about the tablelands and has the contacts and knowledge about the land to make the tour special. You visit a coffee farm (with owner's in their 80's) and the coffee drinkers in the tour thought the coffee was excellent, a fruit winery (which totally surprised me by how good it tastes), a...

Accompanying Warwick on his Food Trail excursion is an excellent way to explore the Atherton Tableland. He is knowledgeable, engaging,accommodating and has a quirky sense of humour. The locations you get to visit are well researched and the commentary is informative and sometimes humorous. We were privileged to meet along the way Bruno and his daughter Maria , pioneers of...
