Beautiful Creatures



Tropical Fruits sadly announces the cancellation of our 2020 New Year’s Festival.

After much consideration, the Committee unanimously feels that the safety of our community must always come first. This decision has not come easily, but we want to keep our Fruity Family and our Club strong for the future. While we recognise the cancellation of the Festival will have a big impact on our wider Northern Rivers community, we are committed to bringing you even more fabulous Festivals and events in the future.

We will be using this time as an opportunity to maintain our Fruity connections, by continuing our monthly online event; don’t miss LIVE FRUITS: a live stream with DJ Sandi Hotrod on July 25th - and as restrictions allow, we look forward to bringing you more smaller events like Fruity Fridays and other gatherings.

Other work we will be undertaking during this time are:
*Strengthening the Club by working on our policies, performance and risk management, communications, and team building
*Preparing for our next Strategic Plan
*Installing a new access lift and other investments in the Clubhouse
*The amazing work being carried out by our various groups such as our Fun Safe and Inclusive team, the Trans & Gender Diverse Steering Committee, the Lesbian Caucus, Commerce & Transport team as well as our youth groups Fresh Fruits & Mini Fruits

As always, our deepest gratitude goes out to our members, volunteers, guests, DJs and other performers, Festival suppliers and partners for your understanding.

Much Fruity love from the Committee and Staff here at Tropical Fruits.

Tropical Fruits is a non-profit LGBTIQ community organisation, run for our community by our community.

Our 2020 New Year's Festival Theme is...

Tropical Fruits Presents:


Beautiful…what does it mean to you?

To Tropical Fruits, being beautiful is being present in your own skin and celebrating our differences.
It is the beauty that comes from within us all that is the MOST valued to us…things like kindness, empathy, humour, compassion, generosity, friendship, family and love.

Beauty is WHO we are - not WHAT we are…we SEE that and want to celebrate it.

We see this years theme as an opportunity to invite all our Beautiful Creatures to fully embrace the WHOLE beautiful beings that we are.
