Pick Your Own Fruit at

Bilpin Springs Orchard
2550
Bells Line of Road, Bilpin
New South Wales.  Australia
This small commercial orchard is open for the public to pick fruit from our trees from Australia Day weekend to Queen's Birthday weekend, season permitting. Families enjoy showing their children where apples come from, and older folks remember days when everyone grew their own fruit. The orchard practises Integrated Pest Management to minimise the use of chemicals. Questions are welcome, and the fruit, of course, is absolutely fresh!
