Situated in the beautiful Tweed Valley, Tropical Fruit World offers a unique Gold Coast experience that indulges all your senses with an interactive activity for the whole family. Over 500 varieties of exotic tropical fruits from around the world are grown here, which means visitors can taste, smell and touch rare exotic fruits such as the chocolate pudding fruit, chewing gum tree and lemon meringue fruit.
No matter what time of the year it is, there is always an amazing variety of delicious fruit in season to sample at Tropical Fruit World’s tasting show. There is fruit to try that has to be seen to be believed – the ice cream bean, red dragon fruit, banana bubble gum fruit and far more are all dreams made reality right here. Visitors not only get to taste the fresh fruit in season, but the preserves that are unique to our plantation are ready for purchase to take home to enjoy.
Come aboard the Plantation Safari for a guided tour of the farm, explore Treasure Island, and adventure on to the Jungle River Cruise and Fauna Park. Don’t forget to stock up on exotic fruit, home-style gourmet jams and sauces, and avocado oil skin care products before you leave.
