Australia industry pre-WAC tour

An industry tour is being organised for Australian delegates to visit Californian growing areas in the week before the 2019 World Avocado Congress in Columbia.

The tour will run from 17-19 September, with attendees needing to arrive in Los Angeles on 16 September to start early the next day.

Accommodation, meals and ground travel during the California tour will be organised as part of the tour package.

Participants will be required to arrange their own flights, and we encourage booking with the tour company we have appointed for the California visits, Pulse Travel.

The tour includes visits to orchards, Gem avocado plantings, high density plantings, canopy management strategies, the largest packing house in the world, rootstock and variety collections.

More details will be released soon. To register your interest, please email Amanda at


This tour is being organised as part of the strategic levy investment project, Avocado industry development and extension (AV17005). This project has been funded by Hort Innovation, using the Hort Innovation avocado research and development levy, co-investment from the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, and contributions from the Australian Government. Hort Innovation is the grower-owned, not-for-profit research and development corporation for Australian horticulture.
