Queensland's Premier Tropical Food Festival

The Feast of the Senses is North Queensland’s premier Tropical Food Experience and the Cassowary Coast’s major festival centred around the town of Innisfail, an hour’s drive south of Cairns. The festival showcases our region’s impressive variety of rare and exotic fruits whilst also including an impressive range of produce including meat, seafoods, herbs, spices and wine. Nowhere else will you find such a diverse and tantalising range of produce and culture, as in this region of Australia.

Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped at River Feast

We just couldn’t do it without you!


In 2023 we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the establishment of Feast of the Senses with lots of great events. We pay our thanks to that small band of community members who had the vision to establish a committee in 2003 to get a small event started, which has now grown to a four-day full-on festival of food, fruit and fun! Thanks to all who participated this year, and especially our volunteers, without whom there’d be no event! We look forward to seeing you in 2024. Don’t miss it!

Presenting a smorgasbord of fine fare, the festival has grown into a celebration of this vibrant and multi-cultural local community, attracting visitors from throughout Australia and overseas. The region boasts a vast array of tropical and exotic fruits which have been collected over the past 40 years from all corners of the tropical world. Mixed together with the many ethnic cultures in the region and the unique concentration of Innisfail’s Art Deco features, Feast of the Senses celebrates everything that makes this part of the world stunning.
