Only half an hour east of the city, the Perth Hills are lush with fruit trees and produce plantations. Depending on the season, apples, avocados, nectarines, strawberries and a variety of citrus fruits are all ripe for the picking. Prefer to buy fresh and support local? Head over to these picturesque family-friendly orchards and growers to pick your own fruit and vegetables for a wholesome weekend or afternoon activity.


Valley Fresh Produce

Deep in the Pickering Valley, this family-friendly farm grows the staple Australian breakfast food – avocadoes! Also offering an assortment of other seasonal fruit including cherries, loquats and nectarines, they are open only on weekends and public holidays.


S&R Orchard

Located in Walliston, this orchard’s involvement with the local community sets them apart from other farms across the state. Twice a year (usually in February and September), they hold all-you-can-eat fruit festivals where you can fruit pick, check out stalls and enjoy live entertainment.


Waterwheel Persimmon Orchard

Open from April – June, this orchard offers fruit picking for no entrance fee. With friendly and accommodating staff, this is the perfect place for a fruit-picking day at only an hour drive south-east from Perth.
