Day 2: Kingscliff

After breakfast this morning we will visit award-winning Tropical Fruit World to learn about their unique and innovative style of growing exotic fruit trees. More than 500 fruits from all around the World are grown on this 165 acre family farm, and every season brings exotic, unusual and delicious fruit varieties. We will learn about these many fruits while touring the property by tractor-train and cruise boat. We will also meet farm animal friends, kangaroos and emus in the Fauna Park before sampling seasonal fruits during the fruit tasting session.

For lunch today we will experience organic paddock to plate farming at its best at Farm & Co as we enjoy produce grown directly on the property. We will learn how this organic farm utilises the best of both traditional agriculture and modern techniques to create and nurture healthy soils by using nature and natural processes as its foundation rather than relying on synthetic chemicals. This evening we will dine at Osteria in Casuarina, an Italian inspired restaurant renowned for its lovely dishes created from locally grown produce.

Today we lunch at Mavis’, a 25-acre former dairy farm nestled at the base of the majestic Wollumbin-Mt Warning. Surrounded by World Heritage rainforest and the fertile farmland of the lush Tweed Valley, the produce here is sourced locally and harvested seasonally.

This afternoon we visit Mount Warning in World-Heritage-listed Wollumbin National Park, part of the Tweed Range in the Northern Rivers region which was formed from a volcanic plug of the now-gone Tweed Volcano which erupted around 23 million years ago.

Day 4: Kingscliff

Today we enjoy an eco river cruise cruise along Stott’s Island to a riverside village – Tumbulgum or Chinderah (tide dependent).

We recognise the specific requirements of single travellers and that’s why a number of our journeys are single supplement free, affording you the benefit of your own single room, without any, or with significantly reduced extra cost.

In this way, you can enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow travellers during the day, along with the safety and security of travelling with an escorted group, but still retire to your own personal room in the evening.  Note: The single supplement free offer cannot be taken in conjunction with any other offer.
