Australia // Queensland

 

If you ever decide to go to Daintree tropical rainforest, in Queensland, Australia, which is vast and amazing by the way. (Trees and birds which I have never seen before). You have to stop off at Daintree Ice Cream Co. & Tropical Fruit Farm, in the heart of the rainforest on Cape Tribulation Road which was the highlight of that trip.

The fruits are organically grown and farmed in their orchard – and based on what fruits are in season you can get a sampler cup of four different flavours. So yummy! My favourite was the coconut.

This takes me back to my childhood – growing up in the Caribbean. Never did I imagine I would see these trees and fruits in Queensland. I expected the usual, mangoes and apples but not that many tropical fruits.

Below are some of many trees grown at Daintree orchard.

A Jackfruit can weigh 46kgs. It has a meaty texture and it is used as an alternative to meat! If you are vegan then the jackfruit could be a nice and tasty addition to your dishes.

Breadfruit grows in tropical countries and is a staple food. It is used as a vegetable which can be boiled, roasted, mashed or make chips. As it ripens it gets sweeter because of the starch content which turns into sugar.

Soursop is green-skinned with short spikes. The flesh is translucent white with flavours of strawberry, pineapple, with a hint of citrus tang combined. And this is my favourite fruit of all times. I swear I could eat this all day and nothing else, haha. Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed that they were not in season so I had to make do with a soursop ice lolly which was yummy, nonetheless!

I didn’t venture into the water once I read “crocodiles inhabit this area – attacks may cause injury or death”. And there are jellyfish too! I kept well clear!

    So beautiful! I’ve never travelled far up north in Queensland although my cousin in Bowen says I can stay with his family any time – I really should explore more of my state! 🙂

    Hope you had a merry Christmas 🙂 We had a great time with family and so much good food!

    I miss Australia! When I was there I spent most of the time along the Goldcoast but I wish I could have explored more of Queensland. There are some truly beautiful places in AUS.
