New festival for the Yarra Valley



CherryHill Orchards will host a Lunar New Year Festival at Wandin East in the Yarra Valley in January.

The new festival will run from January 16-19 and will feature a variety of events and entertainment.




Visitors are invited to celebrate the beginning of the New Year on the traditional Chinese calendar in a picturesque setting, surrounded by the stunning orchards.

Expect traditional Chinese lion dancing, ceremonial drumming, martial arts and calligraphy demonstrations.

There will also be a number of workshops on offer for those who want to get involved first-hand by learning some Kung Fu moves or how to play Chinese drums.

There will also be a number of Asian-inspired food trucks on site, while for those who missed out on cherry picking season over the course of the summer - or for those who just want to keep their supplies stocked up - there will also be boxed CherryHill cherries available for purchase.

Guests are encouraged grab a picnic blanket, enjoy the sunshine (although this is Victoria so any style of weather is possible) and soak up the traditional festivities.

CherryHill Orchards began in 1940 when George Riseborough planted the first cherry trees in Victoria. Today the family still carries on the cherry growing tradition.
