Trails passing through Mt Uncle Distillery Stops

Pete's Pick of Tablelands

With such a unique variety of produce up in the lovely Atherton Tablelands, this trail makes sure you get to see (and more importantly, taste!) the whole range. Starting off at Emerald Creek Ice-creamery for their delicious sorbet, quickly pop in and see the friendly people at nearby Jaques Coffee (if you're feeling fancy, get a second coffee and pour it over some of the Emerald Creek Ice Cream you just bought!), drop by Mt Uncle Distillery on your way south and snatch up some of their delicious spirits, then further south to Mungalli Creek Dairy. As a final stop and as a good way to see more of the beautiful countryside up here, make your way from Mungalli to Broken Nose Vanilla in Mirriwinni. Ice cream, coffee, spirits, cheese and an amazing array of vanilla products? Wow!
