I'm an individual that loves being in nature - being in the outdoors is calming, educational and inspirational all at the same time.

Strawberry picking, and an audience with Truffles and Stubby
Recently on a short five day trip to Launceston and it's surrounding areas, my travelling party were looking for things to do and sights to see in and around the area when we came upon the Hillwood Strawberry Farm. Located just 20 minutes out of Launceston, it is a great place to pop into if you want to hand pick some juicy fresh strawberries, see some farm animals, and enjoy some local produce.

Feel like fresh strawberries? Just grab a bucket or container and head off to the fields to pick yourself some fresh, juicy, succulent strawberries. The staff will let you know which plot is ready for picking.

There is a cafe inside the main building where you can find a variety of local produce from the farm itself. A range of wines, cheeses, vinaigrette, jams and chutneys from other local producers is also available for purchase at Hillwood.
Definitely a place worth stopping by if your in the mood for some delicious strawberries/fruit picking. Staff are friendly and welcoming and it's a great tranquil setting where you can enjoy the scenery and relax, and only a short drive out of Launceston .
