Cancel your trip to Japan (well, don’t actually) because you only need to take a trip over to Wandin East to feast your eyes on some cherry blossoms this year.

Cherryhill’s annual blossom festival kicks off for a week from Wednesday 26 September to Tuesday 2 October.

Surrounded by beautiful views of the Yarra Valley, Cherryhill has rows of cherry blossoms to take in which the perfect spot to dive into a picnic you’ve either packed yourself or stocked from Cherryhill’s farm gate café and food trucks.

You can also indulge in plenty of cherry-related wares such as cheery beer, cherry cider, and their new cherry shiraz—and don’t forget the cherry ice cream.

Cherryhill is also putting on some beeswax workshops to help you reduce your plastic waste, and if you’ve got kids in tow there will be sessions that teach kids about what makes up a beehive, the bee lifecycle, and how honey is made.

Cherryhill is only an hour out of Melbourne, so it’s the perfect time to make the most of spring.

Tickets are only available online, buy them here.
