About Tropical Fruit World
More than a tourist attraction, and more than a commercial farm, Tropical Fruit World is a labor of love, a fruit farm of inimitable value. 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.
THE PROPERTY WAS PURCHASED BY ROBERT & VALORIE BRINSMEAD IN 1972 AS A RUN-DOWN SMALL CROP FARM THAT HAD BEEN GIVEN OVER TO GRAZING. BOB WAS FULLY AWARE OF THE LAND’S FRUIT GROWING POTENTIAL THOUGH, AND THE LOCATION OFFERED BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF THE TWEED VALLEY TO THE WEST, AND THE PACIFIC OCEAN TO THE EAST.
