Saturday 21 March to Sunday 29 March 2015
The Feast of the Senses is arguably North Queensland’s premier Tropical Food Experience. It headlines our impressive variety of rare and exotic fruits whilst also showcasing our enviable range of other produce including meat, seafoods, herbs, spices and wine, the Festival celebrates a veritable smorgasbord of fine fare. Nowhere else is such a range of produce and cultures found as in this particular region of Tropical North Queensland.
The target audience for the Feast is not only the local community, but communities throughout Australia and even overseas with the intent of showcasing the wonders of the Ultra-Tropics®. The region boasts a vast array of tropical and exotic fruits which have been collected over the past 30 years from all corners of the tropical world. Mix this together with the many ethnic cultures in the region and the town centre itself which is home to the best collection of Art Deco architecture in Australia. To blend all of this with the wonderful array of local produce is to really experience the Ultra-Tropics® in all its glory.
In 2015 the Feast of the Senses Festival will celebrate with a ‘Tropical Fiesta’ theme which will reflect the regions of South America and the West Indies from which much of our tropical produce originated. We will see this influence across events in various different ways and this will give a carnival feel to the Festival as a whole.
