The annual cherry season sees families, friends and fruit-lovers alike flock from near and afar to pick their own fresh cherries from Yarra Valley’s picturesque CherryHill Orchards. From 30 November to 12 January visitors can bask in the sunshine, taste as many of the sweetest cherries straight from the trees as they like, and even take some home to enjoy.
Cherry season is one of the few times this beautiful orchard opens its door 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 musicians performing on the weekends. Visitors receive a complimentary Cherish Spritzer on arrival and the friendly CherryHill team will be on hand to show visitors how and where to pick the ripest cherries and ensure they learn and have fun along the way.
The Orchard’s famous cherry ice-cream and delicious cherry drinks will be available for purchase, including the newly launched CherryHill Rosé Cider and the signature Cherish Spritzer.
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, while children can enjoy free face painting and garden games for the whole family. The perfect place to catch-up or take a trip out of town, groups of ten or more can purchase a group ticket at a discounted price. All tickets prices are as follows:
