Heritage Fruit Tree Festival

Explore Werribee Park Heritage Orchard and purchase rare heritage fruit trees for your backyard at home, including apples, pears, cherries, plums and many 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 enjoy grafting demonstrations with horticulturalist, author and owner of Edible Gardens, Craig Castree and Vasili Kanidiadis from hit TV gardening show ‘Vasili’s Garden’.

Step back in time, as the blacksmith fires up the old farmyard forge and pick up some new skills and expert tips with gardening talks and demonstrations from the Orchard’s team of passionate volunteers.

Enjoy a bite to eat from The Refectory Parlour or grab a coffee and snack from onsite food trucks and browse the wares of local exhibitors and community groups including beekeeping group, the Werribeeks, Grow Heirloom Seeds and Corry Gardening Tools.

Make a day of it and explore the grounds of Werribee Park Mansion or enjoy a gourmet picnic with hamper bookings available from The Refectory Parlour (48 hours noticed required).

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