Wet your whistle with Mt Uncle Distillery's whiskies, seasonal liqueurs and spirits using local bananas, coffee, mulberries and lemons (tastings available). Don't miss a meal (from $12) or cakes at the classy Bridges Cafe, hand-built by the owners from the timber of a former local bridge.

The complex is also fantastic fun for the kids, with alpacas, donkeys, goats and peacocks wandering around.

Mt Uncle is signposted along Chewko Rd, 15.5km south of Mareeba.
