Explore Werribee Park Heritage Orchard and purchase rare heritage fruit trees for your backyard at home, including apples, pears, cherries, plums and much more.

You can even create your very own custom fruit tree, with Orchard volunteers providing grafting services onsite to graft the scion of your choice to suitable rootstock!

Take a free guided tour of the Werribee Park Heritage Orchard and the Werribee River and enjoy grafting demonstrations with esteemed horticulturist and author, Craig Castree. Step back in time, as the blacksmith fires up the old farmyard forge, pick up some new skills from the Orchard’s team of passionate volunteers or purchase freshly harvested veggies from the Werribee Park Community Farm.

Make a day of it and explore the grounds of Werribee Park Mansion, enjoy a gourmet picnic with hamper, or grab a coffee and snack from onsite food trucks and browse the wares of local exhibitors and community groups.

Fruit tree sales go towards supporting the work of the Werribee Park Heritage Orchard volunteers who preserve the beautiful Heritage Orchard.
