Macadamias are like no other nut in the world, and Australian macadamias truly are the best of the best.
Macadamias grow best in Australia because this is where mother nature intended them to be grown. For it was here on the north east coast of Australia, that macadamias first evolved more than 60 million years ago.
Today, the production of macadamias largely centres around the same rich and fertile regions that were once home to the original native species. These subtropical climates produce just the right amount of rainfall at just the right time – gentle but plentiful showers stretching through the flowering season into early autumn just prior to harvest.
The soil too has just the right mix of nutrients, and the consistent warm sunshine is loved by the trees as much the local growers who tend them.
It is the commitment of these growers and the millions they invest in research and development every year that keeps Australia at the forefront of this vibrant global industry.
