Growing A Legacy: Macadamias Australia Visitor Experience

In the heart of Bundaberg, amidst the patchwork quilt-like landscape that defines the region's agricultural prowess, stands Macadamias Australia Visitor Experience, a living testament to the Steinhardt family decades-long journey that goes beyond their lush macadamia orchards.

As custodians of the land for more than 60 years, the Steinhardt family have transformed Macadamias Australia into a thriving haven and recognised leader of macadamia nut production in Australia. With a commitment that goes beyond farming—the Steinhardt family has tended to the earth with reverence, their hands entwined with the roots of their macadamia trees passing on a family legacy that transcends generations.

It’s their love for the land, each other, and a passion for producing the finest nuts that truly sets them apart. It wasn’t until 2004 that founders Ron and Marion Steinhardt sowed what would be their family’s greatest success story, grown from their humble beginnings and small parcel of land. Fast forward to today, and this third-generation farming family who have been entrusted to carry on the legacy of their parents, have opened their doors to share their family’s great care with visitors at Macadamias Australia Visitor Experience.

From traditional raw macadamias, slightly salted, to expanding the palette and testing boundaries with chocolate coated, lemon myrtle and now sweet chilli macadamias nuts to be shared and cracked open at the family table.
