Event Description

2017-03-24 08:30:00 2017-03-28 17:00:00 Australia/Brisbane Feast of the Senses 2017 Festival Feast of the Senses 2017 Festival Various Feast of the Senses Inc [email protected]

The Feast of the Senses is North Queensland’s premier Tropical Food Experience.   It headlines our impressive variety of rare and exotic fruits whilst also showcasing our enviable range of other produce including meat, seafoods, herbs, spices and wine.  The Festival celebrates a veritable smorgasbord of fine fare.   Nowhere else is such a range of produce and cultures found as in this particular region of Tropical North Queensland.

The target audience for the Feast is not only the local community, but communities throughout Australia and even overseas, with the intent of showcasing the wonders of the Ultra-Tropics®.    The region boasts a vast array of tropical and exotic fruits which have been collected over the past 30 years from all corners of the tropical world.   Mix this together with the many ethnic cultures in the region and the town centre itself which is home to the best collection of Art Deco architecture in Australia.   To blend all of this with the wonderful array of local produce is to really experience the Ultra-Tropics® in all its glory.

In 2017 the Feast of the Senses Festival will celebrate with the theme ‘Gone Bananas’, which will reflect one of the two major industries of the region and the Festival’s major sponsor for many years.    We will see this influence across events in various ways throughout the Festival as a whole.   

The Feast of the Senses Inc. is a not for profit community organisation that is run by an independent committee of passionate local people who believe in the importance and significance of this event to the community, both economically and socially.
