Laurel Hill: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Sugarpine Walk


Sugarpine Walk is one of Batlow's best kept secrets.

Take the short stroll amongst a dense stand of enormous sugar pines planted in 1928. This species is the largest and tallest of all pines.

The walk is located on the edge of Kopsens Road, around half a kilometre from the Batlow-Tumbarumba Road at Laurel Hill.

Wilgro Orchards


Wilgro Orchards is conveniently situated on the main Tumut to Batlow Road just four kilometres north of Batlow. There is a wide range of both new and old varieties of apples that have been tree ripened to taste the way an apple should taste. Cherries are also grown at the orchard and have built a fine reputation for large, sweet, tree ripened fruit.

Our roadside stall sells our fruit direct from the orchard to you during the picking season. At Wilgro Orchards the fruit is grown as naturally as possible with very low chemical and fertiliser usage. At times when there is only limited passing trade or the orchard is particularly busy we have to depend on the "honesty system" and the stall is not always manned all day. We can usually have someone in attendance if we are notified in advance.
