Complete with a Biological Sustainable Horticulture philosophy, this family owned heritage business takes seriously their custodianship of the land as they seek to educate, share and unlock nature’s secrets with visitors, community and family alike. Since 1983, Tropical Fruit World (formerly Avocadoland) has trail blazed in linking fruit farming with tourism.
Set amongst rainforest, water catchments and the rolling volcanic mineral soil from the caldera of Mount Warning, this working fruit farm is situated in the prime environment to grow over 500 fruits from right throughout the world.
The Tropical Fruit World brand encompasses guided tours and tastings, a farm owned fruit market Plantation Markets, and a regional dining and event venue Plantation House, coupled with a unique collection of skincare and food products The Plantation Collection.
A dedicated team of 40 staff not only nurture the farm, but also provide guests services including guided tours, cafe dining, and specialist retail. As the farm business diversifies, the family continues to focus on best practice environmentally sustainable farming methods – practices promoted by the Founder for more than 30 years.
Tropical Fruit World has welcomed more than 2 million visitors through the farm gates, and continues to celebrate nature’s glory and a love of the land.
