Full farm tour from $35

One of our favourite things to do on the Tweed, Tropical Fruit World is located just 20 minutes from the Gold Coast Airport and 40 minutes from Byron Bay, and is the perfect way to spend a day with the family.

A wholesome, fun-filled destination, Tropical Fruit World has farm tours, fruit tasting, a playground with the best flying fox we’ve been on, farm animals, and even a little boat ride thrown in too.

We’ve visited a few times since moving to the Tweed over a decade ago, and I always love bringing new visitors for a farm tour, and there’s always something new to see each visit. We started each tour by jumping aboard a tractor, and taking the journey through the farm, learning about the different varieties of fruits (over 500, can you believe?), and then making our way to visit and feed farm animals, and have a play on the equipment (or for the parents to have a rest and let the kids burn more energy).

After finishing the tour with a fruit tasting, we always love to head over to the market and stock up on our favourite fruits, and have a fruity ice cream, which is made right in front of us – all we had to do was choose which fruits we wanted mixed in!

Why we love visiting Tropical Fruit World

The fun Farm Tractor Tour. Jumping aboard one of the tractors and taking a tour of the huge farm is such a hoot. We made pit stops to eat bananas and crack open macadamias, while hearing from the team member as we toured the 200-acre farm.

Tasting tropical fruits. With each Farm Tractor Tour a fruit tasting session is included. Tropical Fruit World is home to 500 different varieties of fruit and vegetables, so it’s fun to taste new ones and find new favourites.

Hanging out with farm animals. After the farm tour, we were dropped off to the friendly farm animals, where we were able to feed and pat them. There’s kangaroos, mini horses, cows, mini goats, chickens and donkeys.

A food lovers paradise. With a cafe that’s pumping out delicious food, and ice creams that are made right in front of your eyes (if you’re vegan, opt for the coconut ice cream!), Tropical Fruit World is a haven for foodies. On Saturday mornings they also run a Farmer’s Market with fresh produce, and breakfast bites.

What to bring on your visit to Tropical Fruit World

Tropical Fruit World is a fun, mostly outdoor experience that can last for a few hours, up to half a day. I strongly recommend you come ready for being in the sun, with sunscreen and hat. You’ll also want to wear comfortable shoes for walking, and bring along water for drinking.

You can grab lunch and fresh fruits from the cafe, but if you have hungry little people, consider bringing snacks for along the way.
