Great little plantation just 1km off the road with very pretty shady grounds. The owners are obviously passionate and proud of their business and we're happy to explain about their products. The macadamia ice cream is truly a must, freshly made and delicious.

Happened to stop in on a Sunday drive. Nice surprise. Tropical gardens, picnic tables (many with a view over the bay), nicely packaged macadamia, dense orchard, and a cafe. We decided on the ice cream cups which were good!
