From early December until mid-January we open the gates to our beautiful Yarra Valley orchard every day throughout our cherry season, so bring your family and friends for a unique and memorable day in the country. The orchard and shop are open every day through the cherry season, 9 am-5 pm (excluding Christmas Day).
So why not pack a picnic, enjoy the fresh air and sunshine and have fun picking the biggest, sweetest tasting cherries straight from the tree. You'll never taste cherries fresher than that! Our friendly team will show you where and how to pick the ripest cherries and ensure you have fun and learn along the way! Eat as many as you want at the orchard, and then take some to enjoy at home for a small fee. When you've finished picking, relax and enjoy our famous cherry ice cream and our delicious cherry drinks!
