Brett is very knowledgeable and entertaining. All the places we went to were great and very welcoming. Food was delicious, especially the crocodile sausage rolls. Wine tastings and chocolates fabulous. Even saw a couple of platypus. 10 out of 10

Great day out with Andrea and Chris. Andrea certainly knows here stuff , with great commentary from the beginning to the end of the trip, and with Chris witty interjections they were a great combination. You will have a full day with lots of grazing and a few bevies as well.

Unforgettable Atherton Tablelands Eating and Drinking Experience.
, Oct 2020
My wife and I booked a day tour with "Brett's Kuranda and Outback Tours" as a nice way to spend a day in Cairns. What we got was a whole lot more and probably our best experience of the week we spent on our northern holiday. From the moment we got picked up from our hotel front door by the tour operator Brett, it was like we'd known the guy our entire life. For the rest of the day it seemed like Brett's mission was to give us the best FNQ experience that was possible to be sourced. The nicest feeling was that it seemed like each couple on the tour bus had the day's tour expressly tailored to them and them alone. It was nice to see that everyone felt included as a group BUT THEN felt the tour had been designed exclusively for them. Each of the farm/activity stops we visited on the day were 25-40 mins apart but from the get-go that time dissolved with Brett's narration of the local area, the upcoming stops and previous experiences keeping everyone entertained and engaged. Our first stop was a lovely mix of light dessert, cooked breakfast and nibbles with coffee. The location, atop an almost 360 deg hilltop, was amazing and the lodge hosts were very welcoming and informative. Our next stop was a wonderful experience. Set against a stunning riverside location this eco-friendly establishment was built and run to impress. The hosts were amazing in their enthusiasm and the platter of cheeses and dips we were provided were awesome. Top that off with a selection of either LOCAL red or white wine and, to say the least, it was very impressive. Next was the Platypus Farm that didn't disappoint. A leisurely 5 min walk from the main area to the huge dam and after a few minutes we were astounded by the sight of at least 3 platypusses??? doing their thing within 10 metres of us. It was an incredible experience. Back at the reception area our lunches were provided and they were beautiful. Fresh local produce and topped off with another beautiful range of locally grown and sourced wines. A few more local stops and then we went to Mt Uncle Distillery. Being Gin groupies my wife and I were salivating as we approached this stop. And the taste testing didn't disappoint!! 2 takeaway bottles later and we're off to the next location. Barnwell Cattle Station is a working cattle station that prides itself on it's scones (on the balcony with coffee as the day is coming to an end). After a hectic day of travel and eating/drinking it was the perfect way to conclude what had been a marvellous experience and adventure. If anyone was born to be a tour operator and unique experience provider it was Brett. He made the day his own and shared that with anybody that was wanting to enjoy a wonderful day's adventure. I commend him on his choice of locations (several of which are exclusively his tour's alone) and my wife and I can't wait to head North again to take on this experience once again.
Lushous food /wine and scenery
, Oct 2020
Wow!!What a fantastic tour. Brett the tour guide was terific, I would rate his tour 110 percent. He was funny and a self proclaimed chocolate lover ,watch out for your goodies.!! It's the best food and wine tour I've ever experienced. Make this tour your number 1 ,whilst in Cairns. All of the tastings offer a different experience.I especially loved the Balliy's liqueur .but it did make for heavy luggage on the plane trip home. The scenery is diverse from the Sugar cane & Avacados to the Angus cattle and the splendour of The Rain Fest. Make sure that you take your appetite along .The tastings are diverse and plentiful. Brette our tour guide was a fountain of knowledge regarding the Tablelands region and a great story teller.This tour makes you appreciate just how precious the rain forest region is. Terrific day out. Make sure you

This was a great full day tour. The only problem I had was that they added an additional stop which took us up to 8 stops which was hectic. The last place they stopped was a remote hotel which could have been removed easily from the tour itinerary as there is nothing there. That was the place you were supposed to be able to pet wallabys which was a reason I booked this tour but there were no wallabys there, so a pointless stop.
Fantastic day trip, would definitely...

Fantastic day trip, would definitely book again. Brent was our guide and he was knowledgeable, personable and had a good sense of humour. The morning is a little hectic with the travel between the various places, but the afternoon portion was divine. Worth every penny

The foods selected were varied and very tasty. Also, pleasantly surprised at the size of the servings. The variety of wine and even distilled spirits was certainly appreciated. The food and drink combined with a tour of the Tablelands area made for a very enjoyable day.
