We are thinking of driving from Broadbeach to tropical fruit world... is it off the beaten track and hard to find ?...
It shouldn"t be difficult to find, it's off the Pacific Highway south of Tweed Heads, at Duranbah.
Check RACQ travel planner for directions
enjoy your holiday LTB
I have been there a few years ago but don't recommend it.
TBH, you'll see more varieties of fruit at a fruit market.
But if it's a drive down the highway and out of the city that you're after, then go for it.
It was closed due to flooding the last week of January. May pay to phone them and check if ok now.
Hi Gran... did you go ?... and did you enjoy it.
I've been there a few times over the years with kids and quite enjoyed it. It's a working farm and has a wide range of fruits - but what they have depends on the season.
They used to have a tractor pulling a trailer around the farm for you to ride in, but I think Occ Health & Safety has killed that off. There's now a mini-train and a barge on the river at the bottom of the hill.
I like it. :)
Edit: and there's a location map on the website with instructions how to get there. tropicalfruitworld.com.au/maps/location.asp

I took some interstate friends there recently I hadn't been for years I thought it was a bit expensive for what it is, they take you on a train around the plantation where they point out all the different types of fruit. Down at the bottom you then board a boat around a man made lake see all the wildlife , at the end taste and purchase some of the fruits.
Personally, better off spending same money at Currumbin wildlife sanctuary/sea world or the likes!
Couldn't get there because of the flooding, and Tropical Fruit World was closed due to the flooding - No, we didn't get there.
