Macnut Tours

MacNut Farms is an ideal venue for a group excursion with a difference.Just a comfortable 50 minutes from downtown Auckland along good sealed roads, with plenty of interesting sights along the way, and there is ample parking and easy bus access and turning.A guided tour for a very low $5 per person (minimum 12 people) includes a railed walk through the orchard to view the producing trees, processing plant and lakes. The tour
outlines the history of macadamias, the NZ industry, botanical points of interest, picking and processing methods, and finally the macadamia products.
The highlights of a tour include trees laden with Macadamias. our processing plant, paths paved with Macadamia shell, our cracking equipment and our huge lily pond.Tours aren’t the only way to visit the farm of course – wandering around by yourself without a guide can be equally rewarding; the staff are happy to answer your questions about macadamias or the farm. Self-guided tour sheets are available on request. 

The Macnuts shop has a large selection of Macadamias, ideal for gifts (or for personal consumption), such as the all new Wasabi, Smoked Hickory, Roasted and Salted, Natural and Chocolate Coated.

Macadamia meal can also be purchased for cooking purposes. Nut crackers are available for those who like the challenge of cracking the worlds hardest shell. Gourmet cooking oil and macadamia cosmetics are also available.

There are many other gardens in the Helensville area which are open to the public.  Visit New Zealand Gardens Online for a complete list.


Hi Macnuts Team

I would like to thank you very much for the wonderful time my students had visiting your place last Thursday
The tour was very informative and interesting and the walk around the farm was just beautiful. Many students bought your products and were very impressed in them.

I was very grateful for all the assistance I received in planning my class trip – most places I tried were not interested in ringing me back and were not as professional as I found your company to be.
I’ve been recommending Macnuts Farm to all sorts of people and will certainly visit again.

Kind Regards,”

Hi Macnut Farms

Just to say from our group – many thanks for looking after us so well on our visit to you yesterday (26.4.07). The morning Devonshire tea was absolutely “unbeatable” (no pun intended!) and so well and quickly done for such a large group … personally, I will come back just for the huge scones alone!

Also the orchard tour was very interesting / informative – and well presented. Not always easy to do with a large crowd. All involved get our “big tick” for 101% effort… Just had to let you know.
