Feast of the Senses Food Trails are always very popular with those who have previously enjoyed them. They are an excellent opportunity to visit places not usually open to the public. Each of these tours has a tour guide, who knows the region well and is a member of the Feast of the Senses Committee.
The tour includes a full day bus trip which leaves from and returns to Anzac Memorial Park in Innisfail. Departure is punctually at 8:30am and return is around 5:00pm. (May be a bit late if you enjoy yourselves too much!)
Price : $75 per person per food trail. Includes all transport and refreshments during the day. Some items may be available for purchase over the course of the food trail – these are not included in the price and will be a own expense. This year all food trails will leave at 8:30am to ensure returning by 5:00pm. Tickets will be available shortly and the link setup once all venues have been confirmed.
