Gold Coast | Brisbane Journal – Part 5

Hello, hope you have enjoyed our last few blogs. We have read blogs to get ideas in planning our itinerary. However, the next attraction we were to visit was not featured in any of the blogs we came across. This place is called Tropical Fruit World. We wanted to visit fruit farms but some of them were not opened due to severe weather conditions. We were blessed to discover this.

We were greeted by a giant Avocado when we arrived at the entrance.

It was not difficult to spot avocado trees at the side of the carpark.

image

image

There was a mini-playground at the entrance.

image

You can find array of fresh fruits for sale at the entrance.

image

I think the price was slightly more expensive than the supermarkets.

Our first activity was called the “Miracle Fruit Show”. Customers can enjoy a live “fun with fruit” tasting at this Miracle Fruit Show. See, even taste, such things as Miracle Fruit, Chocolate Fruit, Champagne Fruit or Ice Cream Fruit, Sleep-making and Vitamin C trees. Here, the staff began to explain to us on the different varieties of fruits. This is very informational for parents and kids.

At the end of the presentation, we have the opportunity to taste the fruits and drinks.

After the fruit tasting, we hopped into the tractor train to enjoy a guided tour of the tropical fruit plantation.

The tractor train stopped at the Rainforest Fauna Park. This was where we had the opportunity to engage with farm animals.

image

image

This trip is just about connecting and connecting with nature.

We bought a packet of feed at AUD $1.

image

Macy was terrified…

image

This horse has been at the farm for more than 25 years.

image

Mindy simply enjoy animal feeding!

image

image

image

The kangaroos seemed to be overfed. They were nonchalant.

image

image

image

image

After the animal feeding, we hopped onto the Wildlife Boat Cruise.

From the comfort and safety of the deck you can feed the wild birds as they paddle, swim and swoop right alongside the boat. The ducks are daring, the geese are gorgeous,  and the swamp hens are a hoot!

Although there wasn’t much to see, the river cruise ride was pretty cooling.

The river cruise boat will bring us to this place where kids would love it. First, we hopped onto the miniature train for a tour round the park.

image

image

The miniature train ride lasted about 5 mins. There was a playground right after the train ride.

We were so engrossed in our plays that we forgotten to reunite with the Japanese tour group.

image

image

We were feeding the kois…

image

We would like to give a special thanks to Tropical Fruit World’s staff by the name of Kate. She was very helpful and brought us to a private guided tour around the plantation and stopped by at different sections to explain to us.

Mindy was intrigued by the sight of fruits.

image

image

To learn by sight and feel.

image

We stopped by to pluck oranges.

image

image

What a huge jackfruit!

Beautiful view of the fruit farm.

We tried cracking macadamia nuts.

Tropical Fruit World was an amazing place to be at. We did not leave empty handed. In fact, this attraction was one of our most fruitful visitation. So instead of just visiting an apple farm, why not come down and visit Tropical Fruit World to experience every amazing fruits you can think of?

Today we decided to do something different. We would cook and have dinner at our apartment.

image

We bought beef, lamb, chicken, kangaroo meats etc.

image

Wife’s cooking is the best!

image

Eating and watching Disney Junior again 🙂

Surfers Paradise is soooo beautiful at night………..
