What is Taste Paradise – Tropical North Queensland?
Taste Paradise promotes Tropical North Queensland regional food.
We are a not-for-profit, vounteer organisation run by the people who produce the food – we are the farmers, the value-adders, the chefs and the businesses that care passionately about bringing to you the abundant, unique and delicious produce from the north tropical region of Australia.
The Taste Paradise logo, a plate filled with tropical bounty, easily identifies produce and value-added goods from the region to locals and tourists to connect you with a genuine Tropical North Queensland food experience.
You will discover truly unique foods: wild tropical seafood from the Coral Sea and Gulf of Carpentaria, as well as farmed barramundi, redclaw and prawns, rich dairy products from the tropical tablelands, grass-fed beef and free-range pork and poultry, macadamia nuts, coffee and tea, spices, chocolate, native rainforest fruits, seasonal vegetables including tropical Asian vegetables, fresh salad staples and herbs, and exotic tropical fruits. Follow your own trail or dine at a local restaurant to find the best of locally grown produce.
Look for the logo! It’s our local food brand.
