Location and Times

From Melbourne, approach Bacchus Marsh heading west on the Western Hwy (signs to "Ballarat").

Take the first Bacchus Marsh exit, left onto The avenue of Honour (Bacchus Marsh Road).

We are near the township, 2 minutes from the Highway, and a 20 minute walk from Bacchus Marsh railway station. Look for our red and yellow fruit flags.

Fruit ripening and picking is weather dependent. Dress comfortably for walking in nature, stay alert, and protect from the sun. Simply park inside the property fence, and book in on arrival.

Paynes Orchards open times:

Approximately December - April.

Until 23rd December visitors welcome when ripe fruit remains available  (open times updated on front page).

Closed some main public holidays and in bad weather.

In busy times we may have to close once ripe fruit becomes sold out. More fruit is ripening all the time.
