Give them a ring Rajki (phone number at the top of this page in "event details"). They told me they were going to be open this weekend also. Depends on whether there is any fruit left to pick I expect!

Photo of breath-taking view on the road back to Narangba township from the Longon farm.

It's certainly an experience! Quite rough underfoot, hilly and uneven. Lots of younger folks and children all having a ball. That part of Narangba is big acreage and there's very decent Bananas grown close to the Longan farm, worth stopping to buy tree-ripened fruit at $1 a kilo.

The Elaines and I went today. Quite easy to find - I did use my GPS. The road to the farm from the bitumen road is gravel and there are some humps. They weren't a problem for my Hyundai i30, just go slow over them.

Lots of people there already eating the Longans! but there were still a lot of fruit on the trees at the moment.
