Want to catch the spring bloom season, but don’t have the time to travel to the countryside? We have great news for you. CherryHill Orchards are bringing real cherry trees from their farm to Melbourne Central so you don’t have to miss out on the most beautiful springtime bloom time of the year. 

From today onwards, Melbourne Central’s Shot Tower Square will be transformed into a beautiful springtime wonderland, complete a rustic truck and cherry trees in full bloom.

Visitors can walk through a sweet-smelling orchard of pear and cherry trees, or take a seat among the weeping cherries at the pop-up cherry bar which will be serving CherryHill’s homemade Rosé cider. 

Bring your camera along because it will make the perfect Insta backdrop. 

This pop-up will be a taster of what's to come at the upcoming Blossom Festival at Yarra Valley next weekend, where visitors can wander through rows and rows of gorgeous cherry blossoms and enjoy live music and entertainment. Tickets are on sale now and available here.

The Details

What: Orchard In The City
Where: Melbourne Central, Cnr La Trobe St &, Swanston St 
When: Thursday 19 – Sunday 22 September 2019
