Try an Asian or SE Asian supermarket/store becaue it has medicinal uses in many parts of Asia/SE Asia so you could expect Asian stores to sell it.
Morinda citrifolia….also known as the Indian Mulberry, Morinda, Hog Apple or Meng Koedoe….among other names. Noni is the Native Hawaiin name. Other than islands of the South Pacific, where most commercial Noni juice may originate from [Hawaii and Tahiti], it also apparently grows in Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Taiwan Philippines, Vietnam, Africa, Guam, West Indies, and also Australia.
You would think that it is available home grown in Australia…but you might have to ask around regarding supplies.
Good luck with your search.
Hi, noni fruit has gained worldwide notoriety in recent years for its health benefits, but also as a result of how those benefits have been exaggerated. Noni fruit is packed with nutrients – some well known, others more mysterious – that can help you to live a healthier, longer life. Several animal studies have shown that noni fruit can help to reduce tumors, enhance the immune system, and relieve pain. Noni fruit comes from the noni tree. When ripe, a noni fruit is about the size and color of the inside of a pear. It contains many seeds and has a distinctive, pungent odor. It is soft and dripping with juice. The tree grows up to 30 feet tall in a large variety of habitats: volcanic terrains, lava-strewn coasts, clearings, and limestone crops. Its resiliency has allowed it to spread from its native Southeast Asia to neighboring India and the Pacific Islands, and as far as New Zealand, Australia, and South America. Its leaves are large, dark green, shiny, and deeply veined. Its small white flowers give rise to fruit that is bright green when young, and yellow or white when ripe. Today, noni fruit is available in a wide variety of formats, including juices, powders, capsules, even soaps and shampoos. Used in conjunction with modern medicine, the noni fruit can be a valuable health supplement. Answer for your question: where and how to find indian noni – its native Southeast Asia to neighboring India. Jason Homan

Leaf of the Noni Fruit
Medicinally this odd looking fruit is said to cure everything from stone-fish wounds to digestive upsets to far more serious disease. A concoction from the bark, leaves, roots and fruit can be drunk. When ripe or overripe the skin of the fruit becomes almost translucent and the flesh turns soft to develop an unpleasant odour. The odour has led to nickname of the ‘starvation fruit’ due to the fact that you would have to be starving to eat it as a fresh fruit. Strictly tropical climate only.
