Queen's Birthday

Our Queen's Birthday Ball, held on the saturday night of the long weekend in June, is our winter wonderland party.

An intimate and friendly party, it has a special significance to local members as it is the party that marks the birthday of Tropical Fruits. Our very first party was held back in 1988.

We see it also as a tribute to all of the special queens in our lives and community!

QUEENS BIRTHDAY PARTY 2020 - Saturday June 6th

Details will be announced later in the year.



Queens Birthday Long Weekend Tropical Fruits Pride


Saturday June 8th 2019
8pm-2am - Bus available
Eltham Hotel, Eltham NSW
DJs: Kylie Rose & Dj Sammy – Gold Coast

This June, the diverse family that is Tropical Fruits will be donning all things Rainbow and will lead you deep into a magical world of shimmering colour to celebrate 31 proud years of community building and party magic…

Yay, it’s our birthday…and the birthday of all our Queens… so we are celebrating with our first PRIDE party…one where we will celebrate how far our community has come since the Stonewall Uprising in 1969…50 years and still strong!

Pride is a singular celebration with a million faces—individuals, families, allies, lovers, leaders, and friends.

Set in the misty hinterland of Byron Bay, the warm glow of the Eltham Hotel will draw you into a world of sparkling colour and movement where all the arms of our family will converge as one.

The evening’s entertainment will be sure to bring out the exhibitionist in us all! We start the night off with a new face to Fruits, DJ Sammy from the Gold Coast, from 8-11pm as he sets the scene for a much loved Kylie Rose, returning with her delicious beats to delight us all through to 2am.

As tradition joyfully demands, our Birthday Party would not be complete without the sparkle of royalty with internationally acclaimed showgirl, Christy McNicol and a surprise new local act, Electra.

So come one and all to PRIDE, where we can be one big, colourful, inclusive and above all proud family.
