Take the family on a school holiday outing and see the magnificent cherry blossoms!
The magical sight of Japan’s famous cherry blossoms will be on show right here in Victoria this September and October at the CherryHill Blossom Festival and you could win a family pass!
Presented by Yarra Valley’s premiere cherry producer, CherryHill Orchards, the festival is a showcase of food and drink, live music, entertainment and of course, cherries and those gorgeous cherry blossoms.
The festival will take place from Thursday, 26th September to Sunday, 6th October. Stroll through the rows of cherry blossoms, soak up the stunning views of the Yarra Valley, play giant lawn games and indulge in some cherry treats.
Thanks to CherryHill Orchards, you could win a family pass to the festival.
The kids will love the school holiday activities, with hands-on workshops designed to educate the importance of bees in the Australian eco system.
The workshops are run by local bee expert Holly Hale, who will talk about how bees help the environment. There will also be honey tasting!
If you or the kids are keen photographers, come along to Nikon’s camera masterclass and capture stunning memories of the festival.
The kids can also get creative at flower crown workshops, and round off the festival with face painting and games.
CherryHill Blossom Festival will offer plenty of food and drink options for the whole family from an array of food trucks, including Vietnamese, Mexican, burgers and more, plus cherry ice cream and other treats!
CherryHill Orchards is usually only open to the public during the cherry-picking season from mid-November to mid-January, so the CherryHill Blossom Festival is a fun and special way to see the gorgeous orchards for 11 days during the school holidays.
