Best city in Australia for the cheapest fruits and vegetables?

Hi everyone,

especially for those of you who live in Australia, I would love to have some feedback.

Which city/cities in Australia can you buy the cheapest fruits and vegetables and/or grow/find yourself?

Many thanks in advance.

PS: Any other personal experiences are welcome and appreciated.

Cairns is the most tropical city in Australia ...... with the highland plateau and the coast they can produce a good range of produce ...... there is a good market called Rustys market on Fri Sat and Sun ....... around the area you can get free coconuts all year round and then seasonally citrus mango jakfruit avocadoes can all be foraged ......... all the smaller towns have weekend markets  ...... there is a small contingent of raw food folks who live very happily in this area ...... a great idea is to join the Wwoofing scheme which is Willing Workers on Organic farms ..... $50 gets you a list of 2000 places across Australia where you do some work in exchange for food and accomadation ....... obviously you have to filter through the places and focus on the ones into fruit and veg and organics etc .......... but yeah I moved to this area in '94 with a backpack and a Wwoofing book ...... apart from my yearly trips to Asia I been here ever since .......... I live 2 hours North of Cairns on 75 acres of land which is right next to Daintree national park ....... 56 000 ha of rainforest ........ I can recommend 5-10 different farms/properties within a 200km radius that you would find really interesting ....... so if you are thinking of coming to Australia like Nike says - Just do it .... and consider the tropical area ..... yeah we actually grow bananas around here ....... and its warmer .....

Thanks Jesse, I do want to experience Australia and I think I'm Queensland-bound. ;) Cairns, Mareeba, and Daintree are on my "on demand list". :)
