There is always ten different tropical fruit on the menu - fruit you have probably never heard of,with names like 'chocolate pudding fruit' and 'creme caramel fruit'.We show you how to prepare and eat the fruit, share interesting stories about the fruit from around the world, and then take you for a walk through the orchard which has more than 2000 fruit trees from the Amazon, Borneo and the Caribbean. This tour is not just a plate of fruit - it offers a special experience which cannot be found anywhere else and is great fun. « less

This is a well worth guided tour of exotic fruit, with tasting of what is currently in season and then a tour of the grounds. Enthusiastic people on the farm show you fruit from all over the world that will grow in the specific climate. There is only one warning, you have to book the tour prior to arriving as... More

Oops! Didn't read the 'owners description' above. We rocked up at 3pm hoping to try some interesting fruits only to discover that they just do 2pm tours (not self guided as I had thought). No shop to purchase fruit or opportunity to try. Must read info next time!!!

thanks ddi for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry that you did not get to taste any exotic fruit. During the wet season, when the fruit harvest is plentiful, we do have a roadside stall at the farm gate, with an honesty box, and we sell a lot of fruit this way. But during July/August/September every... More

We popped in an hour before the tasting and they were kind enough to make space for us at the tasting so we booked our spots. The activity was full though so we were lucky there was room - definitely book in advance. Brett talked us through the history of the place, how it got started and some background on... More
