At Nutwood Farm you’ll find over 200 chestnut and 80 or so walnut trees. The 2019 season runs from Saturday, 9 March until mid to late April. They’re open each weekend until the end of the season. No bookings or appointments necessary! Visitors are free to pick as little or as much as they need and pay at the end for their nuts. Walnut are $10 per kilo, chestnuts $8 per kilo. Buckets are provided along with gloves (to protect you from the spiked shells of the chestnuts) and tongs to help pry them open. Nutwood Farm welcomes pickers of all ages! A great fun day out for the kids in the fresh country air. Check the farm website and Instagram page for regular updates!
This restful homestead hides a dark and stormy past. Built for the young military couple John and Elizabeth Macarthur and their growing family. Elizabeth Farm has witnessed major events in the growth of the colony, to the birth of the Australian wool industry. Today, set within a re-created 1830s garden, Elizabeth Farm is an access all areas’ museum. No barriers, locked doors, delicate furnishings or untouchable ornaments. Australia’s oldest homestead is now our most hands-on living’ house museum.
