Cherries, lion dancing, ceremonial drumming, martial arts
CherryHill Orchards will host a Lunar New Year Festival in the beautiful Yarra Valley filled with a wide variety of events and entertainment, designed to entertain adults and children on 16 – 19 January.
Visitors are invited to celebrate the beginning of the New Year on the traditional Chinese calendar in a picturesque setting, surrounded by the stunning orchards.
Expect traditional Chinese lion dancing, ceremonial drumming, martial arts and calligraphy demonstrations onsite. There will also be several workshops on offer for those who want to get involved first-hand by learning some Kung Fu moves and how to play the Chinese drums.
For the foodies, there will be a number of Asian-inspired food trucks onsite. For those who missed out on cherry-picking season or for those who just want to keep their supplies stocked up, there will also be boxed CherryHill cherries available for purchase.
Guests are encouraged to round up friends and family for a fun day out at CherryHill Orchards, grab a picnic blanket, bask in the sunshine and soak up the traditional festivities for this very special day out.
CherryHill Orchards began in 1940 when George Riseborough planted the first cherry trees in Victoria. Today the family still carries on the cherry growing tradition and produces Australia's finest cherries using cutting edge technology. The CherryHill team travels the world to find the best innovations and techniques to ensure the cherries are world-class quality.
