market-day-header-photosThe Feast of the Senses is North Queensland’s premier tropical fruit event!  Showcasing our amazing variety of exotic tropical fruits and produce it is like no other festival in Australia and is truly a feast for all of your senses.

The Australian Bananas Market Day extravaganza is the highlight of the Festival featuring around 100 tropical food and produce stalls, as well as entertainment, displays and workshops. This event attracts over 8000 visitors from throughout Queensland and is the Cassowary Coast region’s largest event of the year.

2017 Australian Bananas Market Day Extravaganza will be held in Innisfail CBD on Sunday 26 March.

Entry is $5.00 for adults and $2.00 for pensioners and school aged children.        However, if you purchase tickets to be involved in the World’s Longest Banana Split attempt, entry to Market Day will be included.    More details about this in the coming weeks.

We are delighted to announce that Peter and Jan Russell-Clarke will once again be in Innisfail for the 2017 festival.     Peter and Jan have been to the festival several times before and have been adopted by the local community as our ‘ambassadors’.    Several years ago Peter nicknamed the region the ‘Fruit Bowl of Australia’.   He was pretty close to the mark….

We will have some special activities for children in 2017 that will be new and exciting – and allied to the World Record Banana Split Record Attempt.   That’s all we’re revealing for now…   watch this space.
