Pick Your Own Fruit

Try your hand at fruit picking at The Little Orchard, which has more than 2,000 apple and stone fruit trees with new and traditional varieties for you to pluck straight from the tree and take home with you.

Our team will be there to teach you how to pick the ripest fruit, explain the taste profiles of our different varieties, offer handy hints for growing your own fruit using our knowledge of growing commercial fruit in Australia.

You’ll walk away with first-hand knowledge of how Australian fruit is grown.

Fruit picking will be opening for our apple harvest season at the beginning of March 2021.

Please register your interest to be notified when bookings will open.

Bookings must be made on our website and sessions are subject to seasonality and fruit availability.
