HOT: Tuckerberry Hill, Drysdale

Tuckerberry Hill Berry Farm and Café is a small locally operated farm located in the picturesque Bellarine Peninsula town of Drysdale.

Tuckerberry Hill

It is open during the warmer months only – basically when berries are in season. Usually that means strawberries October to May and blueberries from December to end of February.

Here you will enjoy picking fresh chemical spray free blueberries for $18-$20 per kilo and you just pay for what you pick. The bonus is that there’s no entrance fee and you can sneak in some berries while you pick!

Tuckerberry Hill

Tuckerberry Hill was started by one of Australia’s pioneering blueberry farmers, Margaret Tucker (hence the name!), with her daughter Christine and husband David Lean continuing on the farm. Tuckerberry Hill is the only blueberry orchard on the Bellarine and all their fruit is spray-free and grown under natural conditions.

We spend a relaxing Saturday afternoon where we pick as much as we please and enjoy some lovely homemade scones with homemade blueberry jam and blueberry milkshakes at the cafe. Our children love picking their own berries and playing in the grounds afterwards.

I highly recommend heading to Tuckerberry Hill for some family fun and it’s a great experience to let the kids explore around the orchards.
