Our Growers

There are more than 850 macadamia growers across Australia producing the majority (more than 30%) of the world macadamia crop.

The profile of the Australia macadamia grower varies greatly. Many have several thousand trees and operate as small family farms, while in more recent years, significant plantations in the Bundaberg area have been developed with up to one million trees. The best growing conditions for macadamias are within the subtropics, and commercial plantations are found in four major growing regions: the Northern Rivers and Nambucca districts of New South Wales and the Bundaberg and Gympie/Glass House Mountains regions of Queensland.
