Type: Farms, Sights & Landmarks
Owner description: We offer an Exotic Fruit Tasting and Orchard Tour every day at 2 pm. 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.

Taking in the sights we thought we'd have a look and try some exotic tropical fruit. Sign posts on the streets lead us up and past it to a dead end. Drove back down the road looking for any clue and asked a local who was mowing the grass out front of her property. Know where the exotic fruit place... More

The property has been sold, the business has been closed, and the owners in their mid sixties have retired and moved to town. All the advertising signage and brochures have been removed. There may be a time lag for some removal requests. The purported conversation indicates that in Australian vernacular, it was a joke and that they were 'taking the... More

This is a magical place, where you can pick freely from an abundance of fruit, stay in your own peaceful and well furnished en suite cabin/studio and swim in your own waterhole in the rainy season. Before you stay just check they have the water situation sorted - we found twice that the water was not running even for a... More

This accommodation is no longer run by Cape Trib Exotic Fruit Farm. Cape Trib Exotic Fruit Farm is now operating purely as a commercial orchard. We have sold the tourism part of the property and no longer do fruit tasting tours or B&B. The cottages described in this review are now operated as Wildwood Cape Tribulation, and are holdiay rentals..... More

the nature, the cottage, the owner and her friendlyness, the peace, the weather :-) - the easy access to Great Barrier Reef Tour, simply everything!!!! I was there second time and, if ever possible, will try to go there next year again

Just got back from the exotic fruit farm, and I feel stuffed with delicious fruit! The friendly and clearly extremely knowledgeable staff are able to give a massive amount of information while not feeling like a lecture. I wish I had taken a notebook, as I'll never remember it all! I had never heard of or seen anything like some... More

Being a foodie myself, I would jump at the chance to try something new and different! This session is a laid back fun experience for all ages to try new fruits that most haven't even heard of. We drove from Cairns to see the daintree and then on to this, was well worth it.

Since I enjoy gardening and growing produce, I was really looking forward to this excursion and learning about a different ecosystem than the one in Texas. I read all the reviews; most were positive, so I figured this would be a great experience. We arrived approximately 15-20 minutes early. My husband and I were stopped by Allison (I assume) as...

I actually love talking about my chickens, but the timing was wrong – ie your car was blocking the driveway; cars were queued up behind you, waiting to be told where to park; and more cars were coming down the driveway; and with you sitting in the car with the engine running, engaging in conversation was difficult. So for the... More

Allison and Digby have an amazing fruit farm. The tasting presentation by Bret was very fun and informative, and the fruit was an interesting mix that you just wont get anywhere else! I highly recommend taking a few hours out of your day and visiting this fruit tasting and tour!!
