Inaugural Ooray Plum Festival - 28th & 29th SEPTEMBER

The Ooray Plum is a luscious, tart, purple fruit; high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals; known to local Aboriginal people as ‘Ooray’ and part of their rainforest-based cuisine for thousands of years.

To celebrate the culinary and health benefits of this wonderful native tropical Australian fruit, Rainforest Bounty Founder, Dr Geraldine McGuire (a globally-recognised environmental scientist) and her husband Atherton Nye (whose family have farmed in the region for seven generations since 1874) will host the inaugural Ooray Plum Festival; in partnership with the local Traditional Owners. 

This memorable event, based on the stunning Atherton Tablelands, showcases the history, tasting, cuisine, growing, harvesting and value-adding of the Ooray Plum over two tropical Spring days.

The Ooray Plum Festival is the acknowledgment of the roles played by all levels of the FNQ Community in the development of the native fruit sector and has been conceived as an annual grass roots collaborative event. Designed to elevate the food movement based around the sustainable cultivation, harvesting and processing of FNQ’s truly unique native food cornucopia.
