Tropical Far North Queensland

The region is home to some of the most beautiful sun-drenched beaches, snorkelling and reef resorts in Australia.

Tourism Tropical North Queensland Chief Executive Officer Mark Olsen said Taste Port Douglas would help raise the profile of the region’s food and beverage offering while enticing southerners north for a holiday.

“The Great Barrier Reef and the world’s oldest rainforest attract people to Tropical North
Queensland, but many Australian visitors are only just discovering our excellent tropical produce and cuisine is an attraction too,” he said.
