At Gondwana Macadamias, we care about the big picture. But who are we? We are Ron and Mel, a farmer and cook. We are passionate about the ancient benefits of macadamias and creating nourishing, enriching products for modern kitchens and bathrooms.
We’d been regeneratively farming beef cattle for years when we made the switch to macadamias. Continually intrigued and inspired by the qualities of these nuts, we now tend our NSW Northern Rivers macadamia orchards with watchful eyes and caring hands, reflecting our genuine commitment to quality and environmental stewardship.
We are committed to practices that are sustainable and regenerative, building the soil and protecting biodiversity. We lovingly roast our nuts onsite so they can transform into our extensive range of healthy, versatile and downright delicious products that can effortlessly slot into everyday routines.
We invite you to have a look around our store and explore our culinary products and skincare essentials that showcase the health-giving benefits of macadamias.
From ancient times to modern kitchens, we are Gondwana Macadamia
We take our inspiration from the 100 year old Macadamia Tetraphylla that sits on the highest part of our farm. This tree, planted long ago, graces us each spring with glorious pink flowers - like the one in our logo! In Autumn, she produces distinctly creamy nuts. She reminds us of the long history of macadamias in this landscape, originating millions of years ago right in the same place we farm them today.
Acknowledgement of country
We acknowledge that we are continuing a long tradition of sharing macadamias in the Northern Rivers of New South Wales, a tradition begun by the Australian indigenous people of the Bundjalung nation. We wish to recognise their continuing connection to land, water and community.
We pay our respects to First Nations Leaders, past, present and future.
