Fodor's Review

Acres of macadamia-nut trees lead to a giant roasting facility and processing plant with viewing windows and self-guided tours. A video depicts the harvesting and preparation of the nuts, and there are free samples and plenty of gift boxes with mac nuts in every conceivable form of presentation for sale in the visitor center. There is no factory processing on weekends or holidays. Children can burn off extra energy on a nature trail.
