About the tour:
Come with us for an exclusive drive down into our deep hidden valley. Be awe inspired at our isolation and immersed in the rainforest around us as we travel the 2km of 4×4 road into our perfect hideaway. Wander with us through our native fruit orchard and taste the fruits as evolution has created them, wild and un-tamed. Note, when in season fruit tastings will be fresh however, when not in season you will still taste these fruits, but they will be frozen samples.
After the orchard walk, enjoy our range of products over a cup of Davidsons plum tea or a refreshing native fruit kombucha, or try our new Davidson’s Plum Royale, a fortified aperitif style wine, as part of our ‘paddock to plate’ experience.
Hear the history of the first settlers to this valley and their relationship with the indigenous peoples who lived here, and why we have journeyed down this sustainable path of growing native rainforest species as an orchard crop.
After refreshments, we return you to your vehicle at the top of the range to ponder the experience as you travel to your next adventure!
