Apples for Easter
April -- For Easter we love picking apples. We're bottling and baking apples, dehydrating apple chips and making apple sauces.
This Saturday we'll also be juicing apples for apple cider makers.
We'll be open daily through the Easter holiday.
Paynes Orchards is open in Summer and Autumn, whenever fruit has ripened ready for you to pick.
Drive in when the red and yellow fruit flags go out at the entrance, and sign indicates OPEN” – from about 11am.
Paynes Orchards is in the town Bacchus Marsh, 40 minutes west of Melbourne.
By road, take the Western Highway (sign-posted road to "Ballarat"), exit at Bacchus Marsh.
You can also take a train from Southern Cross station to Bacchus Marsh station.
