Nov - April (strawberry season), daily 9am-5pm, May - Oct, weekends 11am-4pm
|There's quite a large area for strawberry picking|
|My packed box of strawberries!|
|Jam Glorious Jam, and sauces and coulis and even alcohol!|
|There's also a great range of local produce for sale.|
|If you can't be bothered working in the fields, you can|
always just grab a pack to take home!
|These NQR strawberries for jam look nicer than most of the ones |
at the supermarket and greengrocers!
Eat. Play. Shop. Recommends : Head down the peninsula and make a day of it! There are lots of attractions in the area, like Arthur's Seat (it's closed but the view is spectacular and the maze there is pretty cool), the beaches in Rye, Blairgowrie and Sorrento, Red Hill Market, cherry picking, Portsea Pub and so on. Oh, and bring an esky to transport your strawberries back home without making strawberry jam or wine on the way!
|And finally, an amusing sight of a row of what appears to be "workers in asian hats" |
picking strawberries for the farm in the restricted acess area.
Toilets - they have a row of semi-porta loo type toilets, and also a disabled toilet which has change facilites for babies.
