Lovers of strawberries unite! This event was created for your tastebuds' pleasure.



Wallington, a semi-rural community located 15 minutes from Geelong, is renowned for its annual Strawberry Fair, where visitors get to enjoy an array of strawberry-based foods and drinks in a relaxed and casual atmosphere.

Held at Wallington Primary School, the iconic Wallington Strawberry Fair is this year celebrating its 30th birthday, and as the school's one big fundraiser of the year, you're invited to come and celebrate.

Not only can you purchase punnets of strawberries (gathered by the parents in the school community), but you can also taste their delicious homemade jam or sample chocolate-dipped strawberries with pavlova, pancakes or Devonshire tea. Strawberry milkshakes will be available, or for those interested, a sparkling strawberry wine will be on offer.



If you're not a huge fan of strawberries, or would prefer to avoid berry overload, there are plenty of other food options available at the Fair, including fresh produce, gourmet foods and a BBQ.

Entertainment, for kids and adults alike, include face painting, a jumping castle, pony rides, a giant auction, a mobile animal farm, lucky dips, showbags and market stalls. The Victoria Police Pipe Band will also be performing on the day, alongside other musical acts.

For those who have been to the Strawberry Fair in the past and have played Poo Lotto, you will be pleased to know that it is back again by popular demand. The aim of the game is to pay for a numbered square that is positioned on a big plastic tarp. An animal from the nursery (either a duck, goat or rabbit) is then placed on the tarp and whichever square the animal poos on first is the winning square, with the winner pocketing $50. It's quite an entertaining game to witness, especially if you're one of the people participating - if animals could talk, they'd think that we were mad!
