“Pleasantly surprised!!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

I took my young son here to do something a little different. The ticket prices were a little pricey but the customer service was amazing, I was happy to pay it. We went on a day that was fairly quiet so we had a private fruit tasting which was fantastic!! The staff were lovely and we ate our monies worth of delicious fruits!! We then went on a guided tour of the farm. This was very interesting and informative and not too boring for young kids either. My 3 year old son is very chatty and our guide answered all his questions very enthusiastically. He even got to pick his own banana and mandarin and crack some macadamias. All staff were fantastic!!!

“Great day out”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We managed to hear of a great deal for locals (gold coast) $10 entry, so we thought we would try it.

It's absolutely fabulous.

First up you start on the tractor style train, where you go through the fruit trees. There was a stop where u pick a banana and also crack some macadamia nuts and try them. Continue on the tractor train to where there is some baby farm animals (horse,goat,lamb,sheep, guinea pigs, donkey, rooster, emu and kangaroos)
Feed is available to buy and feed the, which the kids loves. We were in a very small group and managed to feed a baby sheep a bottle as it was rejected by it's mother. Being a Sunday it was very quiet and we got great service and extra info and stories from the staff.

You then hop on a boat where your given bread to feed the ducks.
Then arrive at a small island for a miniature train ride and play time.

Back on the tractor train to fruit tasting where you learn very interesting facts about fruit and sample some produce.

All the staff were so lovely.

It was a great day out. Kids really love it.
One hot tip only take a small stroller for kids who can't walk. There's minimal walking anyway.
Would Def go back but not for $40ea.

“Great for the Kids :)”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Have just enjoyed a fantastic visit to Tropical Fruit World - so glad we decided to try out this place rather than visiting another one of the big theme parks... It was so good for our daughters aged 7 & 4 to see where fruit actually comes from & to be able to taste some different kinds of tropical fruits at the Magic Fruit show. The tractor tour was interesting & we loved cracking open & eating some Macadamia Nuts & picking Bananas. Feeding the happy farm animals was a highlight that had us all laughing & being on the boat tour with ducks chasing the boat was lots of fun too. On "treasure island" we enjoyed a mini train ride then had some free time to play mini golf & try out the flying fox before the tractor took us back to the top of the plantation. We had lunch at the on-site café which was way overpriced for what you got but that seems to be how it is everywhere!! You are free to bring a picnic to enjoy on Treasure Island, wish we had done that as it really is such a lovely place to just hang out & relax. Really happy we went to Tropical Fruit World - have some wonderful memories & thought at $110 for a family of four it was great value.

“Refreshing family day out”
Reviewed September 13, 2013

We got discount tickets from RACQ at Robina and took a 30-minute drive to Tropical Fruit World that my wife had wanted to visit for ages. While keeping an open mind, we were pleasantly surprised at how informative and fun the whole experince was. We took a tractor-pulled plantation safari which featured an interesting commentary, followed by duck feeding, a visit with baby farm animals (the miniature donkeys were particularly cute), a riverboat cruise (more duck feeding), a quick play for our boys on Adventure Island befrore a ride on the miniature railway, which was a highlight of our visit. We also went to a yummy fruit tasting show before having lunch at the Rainforest Cafe. Zac finished the visit with a chocolate pudding fruit frozen treat, and we bought a jar of mango jam. We'll definitely return when we're back on the Gold Coast.

“A very enjoyable day.”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Being big fruit eaters this place really appealed to us. We were not disappointed.

What a great place and a refreshing change from the theme parks of the Gold Coast.

We arrived quite late in the day so we were treated to a tour around the farm in a golf buggy rather than the tractor train, which was nice. Our wonderful guide drove us around the plantation stopping frequently to explain the different fruits and fauna and to allow us to try some of the fruit and crack the most delicious macadamias.

At the bottom of the plantation is an animal park where the kids fed the kangaroos, goats, sheep calves and Sherman the Clydesdale horse. Then it was onto the boat for the jungle river cruise, the kids loved feeding the ducks from the boat and seeing the waterdragons and turtles. Once back on dry land we hopped on the miniature train for a ride around Treasure Island. Treasure Island is several acres of lawn with cubby houses, a flying fox ride, ball- game equipment and mini-golf. Our only regret was that we didn't get there earlier to make use of it!!!

We were picked up once again and taken back to the start for our tropical fruit tasting. We tried custard apples, chocolate pudding fruit, chewing gum fruits and many more! It was very educational and tasty.

Great for families with young kids and a refreshing change of pace from other 'themed' parks. Our kids 6 and 4 loved it.
