Orchard Tour & Tractor Ride
$12 per child | $20 per adult
Fun for the whole family on an Orchard Tour and tractor ride
Join one of our friendly farmer guides on a tour around The Orchard on one of our custom tractor trailers, in the picturesque Chittering Valley, only 45 minutes from Perth. Whilst on the tour, learn about how the fruit is grown and taste some straight from the tree. For most of the year (May to December) you can also pick and buy some to take home with you.
With a wide variety of citrus fruit there is something on the trees all year round. So it doesn’t matter what time of year you visit The Orchard you will be able to taste fruit directly off the tree.
Orchard Tour Duration: 1 hour (on a tractor trailer with frequent stops along the way)
Animal Feeding and Petting Duration: All day (before and after your tour)
- Tractor tour of the orchard (approx one hour experience – tractor stops regularly on the tour)
- Taste fruit from the trees all year round*
- Feed the farm animals

Once all the guests have taken their seat on our custom made passenger trailers, you will be pulled by one of our tractors around one of our orchards that overlook the Chittering Valley. Whilst on the tour your farmer guide will provide you with information about the trees, growing seasons and the different varieties.
The tractor tour runs for about an hour – from leaving the packing shed to arriving back, however, the tour stops several times for tasting (and picking when available) during that hour.
The tractor trailer will be moving for approx. 15 minutes
Fruit Picking & Tasting
With a wide variety of citrus and other fruits there is usually something to pick all year round. Pick fruit directly off the tree whilst on your tour, cut it open and taste it.
If you would like to take Oranges (and Mandarins when in season) home they can be picked on the tour and then paid for in the packing shed – max 5kg per person.
Packing Shed & Fresh Juice
Once you are back in the Packing Shed, one of the farm workers will help you to weigh any fruit you have picked so you can pay.
You can will also be given tastings of our refreshing citrus juices.

After your fun tractor ride and with a belly full of our citrus fruit, you can head down to our farm animal enclosures.
Your Farmer guide will provide you with a bag of food for you to give to our hungry animals.
