Your tour begins at 9am at the Balingup Village Green, where your Royal Gala air-conditioned coach will be waiting. You’ll travel with the group by coach for the day with the event concluding at approximately 7pm back at the Balingup Village Green.
In the morning, visit Woodlands Marron & Fruit Farm – magnificent working marron and fruit farm. Meet the farmer, Ron Robinson and hear his fabulous story about life on the farm.Then we head to the Golden Valley Tree Park in Balingup. Enjoy a walk and a guided tour with Dr Chrissy Sharp through this stunning arboretum. The Park has a wonderfully interesting history dating back to pre-European settlement in the region.
Following the tour, enjoy an individually packed picnic style lunch under the shade of the majestic Oak Trees in the Golden Valley Tree Park. Our picnic lunch is supplied by Blackwood Daily Grind!
After lunch, you’ll board your coach to be taken to your second farm visit of the day. Local farmers Andrew and Nula Scott will guide us around Ridgewood Avocado Farm and give us an insight into growing avocados in the region.
Your farm visits will involve some walking on rough tracks, so please wear appropriate footwear and bring a light jacket for the evening.
