Murrumburrah

First settled in the 1830s, the twin towns of Harden and Murrumburrah - 30-odd kilometres north-west along the Burley Griffin Way from Yass - are at the centre of rich stock and gain-producing country on the south-western slopes of NSW. The area's heritage is faithfully represented by the regional Historical Museum's collection which is housed in the impressive School of Arts building. The historical displays include a smithy and wheelright's workshop. Equally fascinating are the heritage displays in the oak and brass-dominated Harden railway station refreshment room precinct. The galleries include a 19th century apothecary's shop, a music room, colonial kitchen and bathroom (complete with thunderbox). The entire display is graphically complemented with an historic photograph exhibition. Although the district is recognised as a major producer of grain, oil seeds and fruit, it is also distinctive for its boutique commercial ventures. There is an asparagus plantation at Jugiong, 30km to the south, while Australia's only mustard-seed oil is produced at a plant near Wombat on the Olympic Way, while picturesque and historic Cootamundra, birthplace of the greatest batsman in the history of cricket, Donald Bradman, is within an hour's drive.

Hall Family Orchards


The Hall Family has been growing cherries for three generations and the fourth generation are already heavily involved in all facets of the business. In 2016, they decided to offer their customers the unique opportunity to "Pick Your Own" or purchase prepacked boxes of premium cherries direct from their newly built farm gate shop. In the past their cherries have been sent direct to Sydney and Brisbane markets where they have been sold to supermarkets or exported overseas. They now want to share their passion for growing beautiful cherries and enjoy the experience with their customers.

Their Orchard is immaculate with manicured lawn down each row and they practice the latest in biological farming to achieve their quality. They offer the best varieties based on their firmness, flavour and size. Each cherry variety is tested by the family to pass the test and only then is it offered to their customers.

Bring a picnic blanket or sit under the beautiful deciduous trees and enjoy the ultimate premium cherry experience from their farm gate.
