It's that glorious time of year again, when cherries are ripe for the pickin'. The Victorian cherry season has hit, which means that your next few months can be spent cruising through picturesque orchards and indulging in a diet of cherry-based everything.

It's also the time when CherryHill Orchards hosts its annual cherry-picking festival, running from Monday, November 27 until mid-January at its OG Wandin East orchard, and since early November through till late December at its Coldstream location.

Booking in for a cherry-picking timeslot means getting ave two hours to pick and eat your fill of delicious fruit straight from the tree, with any extra take-home haul charged by the kilogram. You can pack your own picnic to enjoy onsite, or let Mary Eats Cake take care of you with its high-tea picnic packs.

Also hitting the orchard through the festival will be a rotation of food trucks and a program of live tunes, which you can enjoy alongside scoops of CherryHill's famed cherry ice cream.

Looking to amp up your experience? CherryHill has teamed up with nearby Rochford Wines to offer a wine-tasting, cherry-picking and lunch package — and with Yarra Valley Dairy and Hahndorf's Fine Chocolates to bring chocolate into the equation.

Adult tickets clock in at $21.50 on weekdays, and $25 on weekends and public holidays, with packages and extras available to add on at the time of booking.
