Pack your bags for a fun family day out! The Canoelands Orchard is 100 acres of fruit and veg that has been in the same family for almost 100 years. Approximately 60 minutes from Sydney, combine a scenic drive with some great activities to do with your family. On our day out, we expect to be able to pick Eggplants, Strawberries, Tamarillo, Persimmon Figs, Lemons, Limes, and Tomatoes.


Details are still being worked on (updates to follow), but we hope to also have a family pasta sauce cookup with the help of a local cooking instructor. It will be all hands on deck with kids and adults involved in preparing the tomatoes and ingredients, and once cooked, bottling them. Please bring empty pasta sauce bottles, plus extras in case others need them.


Fruit and Veg picking will be at cost direct to the Orchard, and there will be a cost involved in the pasta sauce as well to cover the cost of the tomatoes and cooking instructor, $5.00 per bottle.

The Orchard has a Cafe onsite for Coffee and basic food, although the menu is limited so you may want to bring some additional food or plan on stopping for lunch on the way home. Bathroom facilities are available.


Standard COVID-19 procedures apply, and QR codes will be available to sign in on arrival.


On Arrival:


The Orchards address is: 27-29 Canoelands Rd, Canoelands


There will be a staff member directing us to a reserved Tesla parking area. Once that area is full, any remaining cars will be directed to other parking areas. The Orchard will be open to the public on the day.




There will be a rough timetable setup for the day to allow everybody who wants to be involved in making the pasta sauce to take part. Essentially, once we arrive we'll get involved in making the sauce and when the hard work is done, hand it over to the cooking instructor to finish off whilst everybody wanders the orchard to pick fruit and veg, feed the animals, go on a tractor ride etc. Once everybody is finished for the day, they can bottle their sauce and be on their way.


Before we go out to pick the orchard, one of the staff members is going to give us a talk about what's available as well as some info about the fruit.




There is a small entry fee to the Orchard, and cost of the fruit and veg that you end up picking, both paid direct to the orchard on the day. Dine and Discover vouchers are available to be used.


Cost of the pasta sauce is $5.00 per bottle. We're aiming to cover costs only, however; if there's any money left over it will go to the club to be used on future activities.




Given the close proximity to Sydney, I do not expect anybody to have range issues on the day.
