The beauty of Melbourne’s surrounds is that there are a variety of orchards within reach, each offering a unique selection of fruits depending on the season.

Another popular option is Blue Hills Berries and Cherries, a family-run farm boasting delicious strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and more. We work with you to choose the orchard that best suits your interests and the seasonal offerings.

Melbourne’s temperate climate allows for a diverse range of fruits to flourish throughout the year. Here’s a glimpse into what you might encounter:

  • Summer (December to February): Cherries, peaches, nectarines, apricots, plums
  • Autumn (March to May): Apples, pears, persimmons, feijoas (exotic fruit with a minty-pineapple flavor)

Are these tours suitable for children?

Absolutely! Fruit picking is a delightful activity for families with children of all ages. It’s a fun and educational way to connect with nature, learn where their food comes from, and enjoy the satisfaction of picking their own fruit. Most orchards have plenty of space for children to run around, and many even offer additional activities like farmyard visits.

What should I wear on a Fruit Picking Tour?

Comfort is key! Comfortable shoes suitable for walking on uneven terrain are recommended. Depending on the season, you might want to consider a hat, sunscreen, and insect repellent. Long sleeves and pants can be helpful for protection against thorns or bushes, especially during berry picking.

Do I need to bring anything specific?

We recommend bringing a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated throughout the day. If you plan on having a picnic lunch, pack your food and any necessary utensils. Sunscreen, a hat, and insect repellent are also advisable depending on the season. Feel free to bring a container or bag for your picked fruits. Some orchards may provide containers for purchase if needed.

Are there any restrictions on how much fruit I can pick?

Typically, there are no restrictions on the quantity of fruit you pick, but you will be charged based on the weight you harvest. Most orchards operate on an honesty system, so weigh your fruits at the designated area before checking out.

What happens after the fruit picking?

Once you’ve finished picking your fruits, you can relax and enjoy the beautiful orchard setting. Many orchards have on-site cafes or shops where you can purchase additional produce, homemade jams, or other treats.
