Berry World Timboon - Pick Your Own Farm

Pick Your Own Berries

Egan St, Timboon, Victoria

Owners and Managers: Heather Nicholls and Carissa Archibald

There are strawberries.  And then there are Timboon strawberries!

Timboon StrawberriesThe fertile green countryside of Timboon offers a picturesque setting for a feast of luscious berries with a difference. Berry World is a pick-your-own berry farm that specialises in the high flavour varieties of strawberries that you won't find in the supermarkets. You can also pick hybrid blackberries (which grow to twice the size of your normal blackberry) and a range of other berry fruits are being planted and will be available in the future.

 

Why not treat your taste buds and pay them a visit?

Located in the heart of southwestern Victoria, find Berry World on the 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail featuring Berry World strawberries, locally produced cheeses, chocolates and ice creams, the short trip from the Great Ocean Road, Warrnambool or Port Campbell presents a delightful diversion for any discerning palate!

Timboon Strawberries are also a favourite at Great Ocean Ducks  who supply the best Chefs in Australia with fruit fed duck.

A great treat for children of all ages!

Kookaburra at Timboon Berry WorldWide grassed picking paths between rows prevent dust and mud and enable easy access for families and wheel chairs. The setting is peaceful - small birds abound, the koalas and wallabies visit and a public golf course is opposite and convenient onsite parking is available.

There is little more enjoyable than eating fruit straight from the bush

Berries are available from November to mid April. Strawberries have the longest season (from November to mid April) and the Blackberries are available around Christmas and New Year.

The farm is open to the public Tuesdays through to Sunday from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, or until our strawberries are 'picked out'. Unfortunately we must close the gates when ripe fruit has been picked.

We re-open the following morning when more fruit have ripened - nothing but the freshest and the best.

Special arrangements can be made for other times and for visits from groups.

 

When to Pick

Strawberries (Nov - mid April)

Hybrid Blackberries (Dec - January)
