About Our Orchard
Rainforest Heart is a sustainable native fruits orchard in the middle of the World Heritage listed Tropical North QLD rainforest near Millaa Millaa on the Atherton Tablelands, just 2 hours SW of Cairns.
Our signature crops are Davidson’s Plum & Lemon Aspen. We also are a habitat for an abundance of wildlife including our 6 resident Southern Cassowaries.
At Rainforest Heart we are committed to low-impact and sustainable production that is in harmony with the neighbouring pristine World Heritage listed rainforest. Our farming systems use sustainable water and soil management practices along organic principles.
Research projects have identified potential for significant nutritional and medicinal benefits from the fruits, some of which are already used in nutraceutical and functional food products. Published reports are available from the RIRDC website http://www.rirdc.gov.au/publications
