Cherryhill Blossom Festival 2023
Cherryhill Orchards is once again opening the gates for its annual Blossom Festival, held as the rows and rows cherry trees turn a beautiful white. Come and wander through the orchard, sip on cherry vodka and cherry blossom gin, eat cherry ice-cream and settle in for high tea among the blooms courtesy of Mary Eats Cake. There’ll also be live music, and dogs are welcome to tag along.
All-ages activities include one-hour smartphone photography classes so you can learn the basics of taking a great photo (and practice among the blossoms), plus beekeeping, candlemaking and flower crown workshops. And if early mornings are your thing, enjoy a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the orchard. This year adults can also get creative with sip‘n’paint franchise Frida’s, which is running outdoor sessions.
Located an hour out of Melbourne in the Yarra Valley, Cherryhill is a family-owned farm founded in 1940 that’s open between November and January for cherry picking.
Adult entry is $12.50 on weekdays and $15 on weekends. Children under 14 years are $7 on weekdays and $8 on weekends. Entry is free for children under three.
