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

Great afternoon. The couple who run it are very sweet and deffo no their stuff bout the fruit. Great chance to experience different fruit that wouldn't normally get chance to taste and not even that expensive. Also got to look round the orchards where the fruit it grown which was cool :) thanks a lot for great activity!!

My husband and I drove up to Cape Trib for the day from Port Douglas and decided to book an exotic fruit tasting with the Cape Trib Exotic Fruit Farm. They had 10 fruits for us to taste, and taught us about all the different kinds of fruits, why some were not marketable to the masses versus other fruits, and... More

This was a favorite from our Autralian adventure. We visited on 12/26/13. It was amazing to taste all the unique fruits and to learn how many of them cannot be commercialized for a variety of reasons...so you can't find them when you get home, no matter how hard you look! So, enjoy it while you are there!! The varieties will... More

We really enjoyed the exotic fruit tasting - our host was knowledgable and told us so much about the different fruits we had no idea existed! It was a lovely way to finish a long day snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef - now we just have to find some jakfruit somewhere in Cairns!

I highly recommend this this exotic fruit tasting. Alison and Digby grow about 150 different species so you are bound to discover new favorite fruits. Digby offers a very knowledgeable and informative tasting. Don't miss it when you are in Cape Tribulation!

If you are going to Cape Tribulation don't miss this exotic fruit farm. You will be amazed at how many different fruit trees they grow. And do try their home-made ice-cream. It's really yummy.

We knew we were supposed to book in advance but it was a last minute decision to go and being the quieter season we thought it might not be fully booked... well I think it was almost fully booked and our hosts still managed to squeeze us in (2 adults and 3 children 7,5 & 5). Our kids love fruit... More

We highly enjoyed our experience at the Cape Trib Exotic Fruit Farm! The fruits were all things we had never tried before and were delicious! Brent was highly knowledgable about the fruits and organic farming in the region. We loved our experience and are still enjoying the jam we brought home with us! Would highly recommend!

This was something a little different to do whilst on holidays - and well worth the visit. Great fruit and lots of informative commentary. The walk around the property finished off a pleasant afternoon. I'd do this again if I visited the Daintree another time, as I'm sure the selection of fruits would change regularly.

I had my concerns about this, I hesitated and ummed and ahhed, but I went. It was great. So interesting, so informative and so tasty. This is a really good, very Tropical North Queensland experience. The tasting and the walk around the farm were enjoyable. I'm so glad I went. And I just finished eating the Jackfruit Jam we bought.... More
