Visit our Lemon Myrtle Plantation in the beautiful Nambucca Valley — 22 km turning off at Macksville. Lemon Myrtle is a native Australian tree whose leaves have a refreshing, spicy lemon taste.
Lemon Myrtle is well known as an ornamental with abundant flowers and fragrant lemon-scented leaves.
The plant is native to Australia; it is a rare plant, restricted to Queensland and New South Wales, and considered endangered. It has been cultivated since the early ’90s. More lemon than the lemon is how to describe the oil distilled from the Australian Lemon Myrtle (Backhousia Citriodora).
Many oils can be classed as ‘lemon’ oils because of their aroma. Lemon oil itself is cold pressed from lemon peel and is actually less ‘lemony’ than many other oils because it contains only 3-10% of citral, the best known of the lemon scent components.
We provide a wonderful morning tea, followed by an educational talk on the growing and processing of Lemon Myrtle, and the extraction of our Lemon Myrtle Oil developing it to product stage.
Enjoy samples of our Lemon Myrtle Rainforest personal products, then visit our interesting gallery for the purchase of our Lemon Myrtle products, jewellery and artifacts.
