Winter's almost done and dusted, and spring is almost set to be sprung — and that means the stunning annual Blossom Festival is ready to descend on Cherryhill Orchards for two weeks of quintessential springtime revelry.

From Saturday, September 17–Sunday, October 2, the Yarra Ranges orchard will come alive to celebrate the new cherry blossom season — though there's much more on offer here than an abundance of beautiful blooms. Visitors will be able to enjoy cherry-infused sips, cherry ice cream and plenty of live tunes while they stroll through the rows of blossoming trees.

Once you've worked up an appetite, you can soak up some spring sunshine while feasting your way through a sumptuous picnic spread courtesy of The Posh Palais, or take advantage of a wine-and-dine package from nearby Rochford Wines.

If the superb scenery has inspired your creative side, there's also a program of hands-on family-friendly workshops running through the festival, covering everything from flower crown creation to beekeeping basics. And if you're in the mood for romance, you can precede your visit with a sunrise hot air balloon ride, thanks to the folks at Global Ballooning.

Adult general admission is $8 on weekdays and $14 on weekends, with various experiences and food packages available to add to your booking. And for the first time, dogs are welcome to join your blossom adventures.
