Go Nectarine and Peach picking at Canoelands Orchard

Canoelands Orchard is our pick (‘scuse the pun!) for stone fruits. It has been owned by the Christie family since 1923 and is now managed by Hills District Mum Jaime and her husband Nathan. The orchard’s main produce is nectarines, but they also grow peaches and both are available for picking now.

In addition to picking your own, you can explore the property. Due to COVID you need to book in advance for weekends. Website: canoelandsorchard.com.au or Facebook
