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.

The 2022 festival was a raging success! There was something for everyone over the course of the four day festival. Our events were all booked out and we had a great time. Remember, don’t leave it too late to book your event tickets or you’ll miss out.

We celebrated the 5th anniversary of the Guinness World Record Longest Banana Split this year at a number of Innisfail eateries in March.  Watch the video of our 2017 achivement by going to the Guinness World Record tab on this website.

Thank you to everyone who participated in our festival this year. See you in 2023!
