The cherries have all gone and there are no more to be picked. We are closed for this season. We sincerely thank all our customers for joining us this year and it has been a pleasure to work with you.

To those of you who have been unable to reach us via phone or email (or waiting for that next blog update), we apologise for the poor communications. Telstra provide our landline, internet and mobile services and our connections have been unavailable for most of the last fortnight.

Best wishes for 2017!

Warm regards
Ron and Cheryl

Closed Monday-Wednesday, reopen Thursday-Saturday

We had many pickers through the gates today and there is limited picking available tomorrow (Sunday). Please remember that you pay for what you pick. We welcome you to sample a small amount of fruit, however this is offered in good faith and it is expected that most fruit will be paid for. Thank you for your consideration.

We will be closed Monday 19th to Wednesday 21st to allow the next varieties to ripen. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

We reopen Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th (Christmas eve).


If there are any cherries left we will open again Boxing Day, however please check here or call ahead for confirmation.

Crop delayed, opening in 7-10 days


Thank you for patiently waiting as the cherries continue to ripen. Given the weather we've had so far, it looks like the cherries about a week behind the usual schedule. 

We intend to open in 7-10 days time, so make sure you check out our Finding Us page for helpful tips in getting here and our How It Works page for opening times and what to bring.

Looking forward to seeing you all soon!

2016 season update

Welcome back for another season! We hope you've had a good year so far.

Thank you for all the enquiries and lovely messages of support regarding the rather soggy spring weather!  We still have a couple of weeks of blossom to go before we will be able to properly assess the crop, but the trees seem largely unscathed so far. 

As usual, we will keep you up to date here on the blog. Don't forget to subscribe for updates delivered straight to your inbox.
