About us

     Spirit of the Rainforest has evolved over the last 20 odd years  – originally created as a commercial grower of any Australian rainforest plant  – now encouraging the growing of plants found naturally in the grower’s region. In our case, we generally restrict ourselves to plants found in the rainforest of the Nambucca Valley of New South Wales.  We walk in those rainforests, we photograph those rainforests, we attempt to emulate those rainforests in the plantings on our property.

Spirit of the Rainforest has also developed a cultural tour in conjunction with local Gumbaynggirr man, Michael Jarrett.

We planted an orchard of Davidson Plum way back in 1998 – our Davidson Plum Jam is superb!

Photography is of great interest to us. Most of the images on this website were taken by Calumn. Check out his own site, calumnh.com
