Carnarvon banana plantations

Carnarvon's 180 plus plantations produce $46 million worth of produce annually, including more than half of Western Australia's banana crops.

The region's mild climate, its pest free status and the fertile land near the Gascoyne River combine to result in top quality fruit and vegetable production.

These days plantation operators are value adding by producing a massive range of quality sauces, jams, pickled fruit, wines, ice creams and dried fruit.
