    Short Property Description

    Palm Creek Plantation is located 45km south of Townsville on the Bruce Highway, at the base of Mt Elliot. We were the first commercial grower of the Achacha in the world, and remain by far the largest with 16,000 Achacha trees. we sell the Achacha fruit within Australia and overseas – to the UK, Germany, other European countries, Hong Kong and Canada.

    The Achacha fruit comes from the Amazon Basin in Bolivia. It is similar in size to the lychee, rambutan and mangosteen, but has only one third the sugar content of these other fruits. Taste experts describe it as “sweet, tangy, refreshing – like a sorbet”. It has excellent health properties. Check for full information on the fruit and its story.
