U-Pick season is here! Cherry pick the sweetest fruit straight from the orchard this summer ...
Pick Your Own at Cherryhill Orchards from 19th November
Get ready for the taste of summer, because sweet, ripe red cherries will be ready to pick at Cherryhill Orchards in Wandin East.
Cherryhill, set high on the scenic hills overlooking the Yarra Valley is one of Victoria’s most highly regarded cherry orchards, supplying many of Australia’s finest fruit outlets. They grow only the best and sweetest varieties, so cherry lovers can be assured of only the largest and tastiest fruit throughout the season. This year a bumper crop is waiting to be picked.
Allow plenty of time when you visit Cherryhill. Multi-lingual staff will be available to assist with finding the very best picking spots with the sweetest fruit. You might want to do some picking before relaxing on the expansive grounds to enjoy the gorgeous views and festive atmosphere, with live music* and lawn games. For an extra bit of fun, you can pose inside Cherryhill’s specially built, life-size photo frame to get a framed photo with the beautiful orchard as a backdrop.
If you didn’t pack a picnic basket, Cherryhill’s own picnic box has a selection of cheese and antipasto and there’s also a range of delicious cherry products available, including cherry chocolate, cherry nougat, cherry blossom tea, cherry juice and of course, Cherryhill’s wickedly famous cherry ice cream.
Cherry picking is a great day out and perfect summer holiday activity. It’s also an ideal activity for children, so they can learn about where food comes from - and what’s better than eating fresh, sweet cherries straight from the tree?
Cherryhill is only one hour by car from Melbourne.
Entry fees include all the cherries you can eat on site and you can purchase extra cherries to take home.
Pick Your Own will run until the end of January, subject to the season. Updates on end of season can be found on the website.
