Yarra Valley’s picturesque CherryHill Orchards is celebrating its 80th anniversary in 2020 and will welcome cherry-lovers to bask in the sunshine and enjoy the 85-acre orchard.
Surrounded by cherry trees, taste fruit straight from the trees and even take some home to enjoy, with the annual Pick Your Own season running from 27 November to early January, with tickets going on sale 1 November. Visitors are encouraged to purchase quickly as time slots have limited capacity to ensure cherry-pickers can be safely distanced while enjoying a fabulous day out.
In addition to the Pick Your Own experience, visitors can also enjoy a High Tea in the Orchards experience. Offering visitors their own exclusive picnic nestled among the avenues of cherry trees, set in a private row of green foliage, visitors will enjoy a picnic basket full of goodies, and can spend a lazy afternoon of indulgence within the picturesque orchard. Each sitting is three hours and will include an indulgent cherry-inspired menu and sparkling wine.
Cherry season is one of the few times a year this beautiful orchard opens to the public for a unique and memorable day out in the country – opening every day throughout the season, 9am – 5pm (excluding Christmas day) with live music and food trucks.
With Melburnians itching to get out and about again and support Victorian businesses, CherryHilll Orchards is excited to welcome guests and remind everyone that Victoria is home to a stunning destination for the perfect day out. Cherry picking timeslots will be for two hours, and then guests are welcome to visit the onsite café, try the coveted cherry ice-cream, enjoy a free beverage tasting, including CherryHill Rosé Cider and the signature Cherish Spritzer, while soaking up the live music and scenic surrounds.
Guests can relax and unwind among the rows of cherry trees by setting up their own picnic in the orchard or enjoy food from rotating food trucks on site.
