About Tropical Fruit World:

More than a tourist attraction, and more than a commercial farm, Tropical Fruit World is a labour of love. This family-owned business takes their custodianship of the land seriously, as they seek to educate and share nature’s horticultural secrets with visitors and community.

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.
