Pick your own apples at Canberra's only self-pick orchard
It's apple season, Canberra!

Our orchards are now bursting with delicious fruit and they're ripe for picking. And Tanbella Orchard has LOTS and LOTS and LOTS of apples for you to pick!

Tanbella Orchard is set within the lush, fertile surrounds of Pialligo, Canberra's original food bowl. The orchard was first planted in the 1970s and has since then undergone many changes under successive owners. Originally planted with red and gold Delicious and Granny Smith apples, the orchard was transformed during the 1980s when the then owners embarked upon a plan to offer self pick apples and other fruits. The orchard now grows a wide variety of apples including rare, heritage and international varieties such as Cox's Pippin from England and Belle De Buscop from Holland, but it also grows peaches, pears, nashi pears, nectarines, garlic, herbs, and vegetables.

Tanbella Orchard is a self-picking orchard and the only one of its kind here in Canberra. When you arrive, you are given a map of the orchard and a basket, and the friendly staff give you tips on how to pick apples, what not to pick, and which rows in the orchard the apples ripe for picking are. They also direct you to other fruits such as peaches growing in the orchard. And then off you go. There really is nothing like picking fruit straight from the trees and eating them fresh.

But there's more to Tanbella Orchard. Fresh cold pressed apple juice is available during the season as well as apple cider vinegar and dried fruits, all made in the orchard. And this year, there is now a picnic area in the orchard's beautiful garden where you and your family and friends can sit and relax after picking your apples.
