    Tasting experience on the Rattler
    Marian_P, Mar 2021
    Tasting tray too overpowering. The cheese and the salami needed to be just small morsels given the intensity of the flavours. They all clashed with each other. And there was no balance. The lunch chicken was overcooked. The rattler ride itself was expected. Highlight for me was to see the small communities around these stations. We also took a car ride our to Imbil. The goods for sale are a good idea and the Gympie Produce book was winner.
    Enjoyable experience

    The Rattler ride was great enjoyable and the knowledge given us was great. Tasting plate and lunch was very tasty.
