The afternoon is dedicated to unearthing the local delicacies that are hugely popular with visitors including the Ginger Factory and Yandina's Nutworks producing Macadamia Nuts.

The day tour incorporates both visits to the rainforest, popular sightseeing sites and tourist attractions making it a perfect choice suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
