Welcome to Darkes Glenbernie Orchard! For five generations and over 80 years our family has lived here and grown fruit. We are a hidden spot within Sydney's water catchment and our closest neighbour is Dharrawal National Park. It's beautiful here.Let us share a few secrets with you! The blossoms happen very quickly and each variety only last a matter of a week or so! This is a ‘real’ working orchard with a real history. We are real farmers.
So you'd like your children to understand seasons and how fruit grows from its very beginning? This is a chance to see the early stages of the fruit growing cycle. The kids can see what a tree looks like moving from Winter into spring time. Perfect for beautiful pictures too! See what a baby nectarine and peach looks like at its earliest growing point. Compare later in the year when you return to pick your fruit from the same trees. Please allow around 1 to 1&1/2 hours for your visit. Please wear closed in shoes.
Do not wear thongs or sandals. Wear shoes that are comfortable to walk in.
PLEASE NOTE: DO NOT ARRIVE LATE! (We leave together and we cannot wait for those who are late). Some areas of the farm may be quite far from the shop area and you will be guided within the farm to the best place to view the blossoms.
