The Adelaide Hills takes remarkable pride for its luscious cherry orchards producing over 20 varieties of cherry each year. Aside from enjoying the healthy benefits from cherries, you will also appreciate the relaxing green vineyard scene. The picking activity may sound less energetic but you will be surprised that walking around and stretching some of your body muscles through picking can also be a form of exercise.

You can choose from a long line-up of cherry orchards that shows how vast the cherry farm in Adelaide is. In fact, the Cherry Growers Association of South Australia created a map to help visitors around the area.

The best time to pick cherries are during December where you can make picking cherries as your Christmas activity although the cherry season runs from November to January. In addition, you can also satisfy your taste buds by trying cherry-filled delicacies as well as raspberry, plum, apricot and apple jams.
