'PICK YOUR OWN' Fruit Picking Bacchus Marsh Melbourne

Strawberry picking is a highlight along the Bacchus Marsh Avenue of Honour

Recreational fruit picking, otherwise known as 'pick your own', is an extremely popular family friendly past-time within Bacchus Marsh.

Many visitors to Bacchus Marsh are often surprised to find that Pick Your Own is in fact a seasonal activity. Certain varieties of fruit available for just a short window of time.  For this reason, and due to Victoria's unpredictable weather, it is always best to confirm availability of your favourite fruits. We recommend that you call ahead to find out what is in season and to discover what else is on offer within our beautiful town and along the historic Bacchus Marsh Avenue of Honour.
