After the hearty meal, we drove back towards the Kwinana freeway headed home (Rockingham) but we did a last minute detour to Baldivis Road when my aunt suggested we should stop at the MacNuts Farm to get some delicious crunchy macadamia nuts. Mmmm...yummy macadamia nuts!!! The farm is situated at 213 Doghill Road, Baldivis, some 50 kms south of Perth on Western Australia's sandy coastal plain. On our arrival, all I could see were straight lines of tall trees; like a mini jungle. Further inside the mini jungle farm is a modern farmhouse and a huge barnyard that I assumed is the processing plant, where they process the macadamia nuts. We went inside the house, which is actually a mini shop that sells various macadamia products; from processed ready-to-eat macadamia nuts which are available in 9 different flavours including chocolate coated and caramel ones (my favourite!) to their very own cosmetic body & skincare products. The price range is a little bit pricey but it was worth it compared to buying from supermarkets.

I ended up buying the caramel coated ones after tasting few samples of the delicious nuts; a 200g packet cost me about $10. (that's not cheap). After that, we went straight home, and started sampling our macadamia with our bottle of Coronas...cheers :)
