Located in Roleystone in the charming Perth Hills (just 30km from Perth), you’ve likely seen snaps of the Raeburn Orchards across social media before. The dazzling orchard is one of the best places in Perth to soak up the magical autumn vibes, with its rows upon rows of vibrant foliage the perfect backdrop for a seasonal pic.
But aside from being a photographers’ playground, the orchard is also home to some of the highest quality fruit around. No surprise considering it’s been owned and operated by the Casotti family in some incarnation since 1948.
In autumn, it’s all about persimmons, apples and pears—all of which you can purchase at the shop on site. But that’s not all you’ll find—there are loads of other gourmet goods to tuck into.
We suggest buying a bunch and throwing down a picnic blanket somewhere so you can take in those stunning views over lunch after you’ve gone for a walk through the grounds. Even better, you’ll also find Roleystone Brewing Co’s cellar door at Raeburn Orchard too so why not top your trip off with some crisp apple cider?
With entry to the orchard only $5, we reckon this super-snappable self-guided stroll is one you absolutely need to tick off your list. Trust us, if nothing else, your Insta feed will thank you for it.
