Overview

A family run mango farm on 25 acres, Crazy Acres brings you all things homemade and many things "mango". Open every Dry season from May to September. Smoothies, fresh salads, homemade bread and platters. Homemade ice creams, chocolate coated bananas, and frozen mango can all be found in the freezer. Homemade preserves, dried mango, local jerky make a great pressie to take away. Sit and look at the very trees that produce the beautiful mangoes that are used in so many ways. Tables in the garden have you in between the tropical fruit trees and make a great place to relax with a meal, drink or ice cream. The staff are happy to help with tourist information, local knowledge, or simply how we pick the mangoes.

Hubby and I were excited to be in Darwin and were hoping for some tropical delights not realising that it wasn’t the season. The trees had apparently just finished flowering. The owners must be making a fortune as they’ve spent nothing of the decor which...More

We were in need of a yummy drink after a big swim in nearby Berry Springs. Had mango smoothies which were very nice. Tried the mango icecream - it was nice but perhaps more like a mango iceblock than ice cream.

Thanks for the review matmob. Glad you enjoyed your visit. Did you have the ice cream or the mango pop on a stick? That one is a mango ice block whereas the one in the tub is made purely with cream and mango. Cheers Karen
