Cherry picking in Cherry Hill Orchard, Melbourne

The only good thing about summer here in Melbourne is the fruit picking season! This year we went to pick cherries at Cherry Hill Orchard situated at Yarra Valley, or to be specific at Wandin East. It was a short drive (about 40 mins) from our home.

There are so many cherry trees and all of them are filled with cherries! The kids were so happy! It cost $10 for adults and $5 for kids 3-11. You can eat all you while in the farm but everything you've picked and wanted to bring home will be charged $10 a kilo. Fair enough as many just pick and pick for the fun of it but did not purchase the picked cherries.

We had a blast at the farm and it was a great experience for the kids. The cherry picking season is pretty short... only from December through to the 1st week of January so if you wanted to go pick some cherries, then you gotta be fast! :)
