Hinterland Gourmet Safari – Asian theme!

The Noosa Long Week End Festival invites you on a gourmet tour of the hinterland with a special Asian theme. This popular tour is now offered on two days, Monday 17 June and Wednesday 19 June

Your coach leaves from the ‘J’ theatre, Noosa Junction, at 9.15 am prompt, to firstly visit Tim Warren’s Garnisha Spice Gardens, in Cootharaba. Tim will conduct a tour of these lush, fresh spice gardens which form the base of his hands-on spice business, producing Indian curry pastes and pickles, North African and Middle East spice blends, Malay and Thai spice mixes. Morning coffee with refreshments will be served at Garnisha. We journey on through the scenic Blackall Ranges to our next destination for lunch at the Tamarind Restaurant, at Spicers Retreat, Maleny. The Tamarind’s executive Chef, Daniel Jarrett, embraces the culinary cultures of Asia and will prepare a special Thai Lunch for us which includes a welcome glass of champagne and a glass of wine.

After lunch we have a quick look at the restaurant’s herb garden and cookery school kitchen before journeying on to the Ginger Factory, the biggest outside of China, at Yandina. Here we will enjoy a presentation on the production of ginger and taste various ginger products.

After an opportunity to browse and buy in the fascinating Ginger Shop, we board our coach for the final drive back to Noosa.

Inclusions : Tour of Garnisha; Morning coffee; Thai lunch with 1 glass champagne and 1 glass wine; Ginger Factory tasting tour; coach fare. Tickets are for shared table seating. Bookings limited to 52 each tour.
