Tropical Treats – Exotic Fruit at Rainforestation
Cairns Fruit Tasting

Rainforestation Nature Park is one of the options on your Kuranda day tour, and we highly recommend visiting – if only for the delicious exotic fruit available for purchase at Tropical Treats!

There is a range of exotic fruit growing in the fruit orchard at Rainforestation for guests to learn about, and then purchase.

When you visit, you can wander through the fruit orchard and read about each fruit and plant – where it can be found, and what it can be used for.

Over at the cafe, there’s a whole range of fruit available for purchase – most of which has been picked straight from the orchard itself!

The fruit available will vary, depending on the season, but you can expect to find things like dragon fruit (red, yellow and white), carambola, custard apple, Davidson plums, miracle fruit and star apples.

You can purchase the fruit to take home with you, or the friendly Tropical Treats staff can help you prepare it on the spot so you can enjoy it in the cool shade of the orchard.

The cafe also offers a range of other products including locally made ice cream and sorbet, produced from local ingredients.

If you ask the staff for their recommendation, they’ll tell you it’s hard to pick one! But some standouts include:

  • White Chocolate & Macadaemia
  • Mango
  • Wattleseed
  • Davidson Plum

You can also purchase fresh juice and a range of snacks – perfect for a refreshing mid-afternoon pick-me-up!
