Mangoes are an Australian icon, they’re full of emotion, wrapped in ritual and tied with memories. They are easy to prepare, just buy from the local markets and eat beside the Cairns Lagoon, they are bursting with nutritional value and did you know there are over 30 varieties of Mangoes in Australia? Try a different one every day of your holiday in Cairns!
But best of all, mangoes are served in Cairns restaurants and cafes, delicious on their own, perfectly pared with locally grown chicken or prawns and seafood from the Coral Sea, try mangoes in light summer Queensland salads or ask for a mango cooked on a barbeque.
One of the best ways to start the day, is to float up high with Hot Air Balloon Cairns and see the mango farms of the Atherton Tablelands from your balloon basket, then afterwards, enjoy a delicious breakfast of mangoes and fresh local fruits.
