Pick Your Own Apples at @Lenswood isn’t just pick and run type of thing – it really is a fun full day out you can have with the whole family in the beautiful Adelaide Hills.

Their 2024 Season is now open and will run through until the end of May – read on to see why you need to take the family there this Autumn!

It is so much more than just apple picking – yes that is definitely the highlight, but they also have so much more including:

And OH. MY. GOD the apples. If you’ve never crunched into an apple straight off the tree – it’s worth a trip just for that. Doesn’t your mouth just water looking at these photos!

Lenswood is around 40 minutes drive from Adelaide. Not far from other Adelaide Hills towns like Hahndorf and Woodside. Set on 23 beautiful acres @Lenswood is a 6th generation farm purchased by Emily and Chris Shipway and they have done a brilliant job turning it into a truly family friendly experience. Parking is easy with their large carpark, there are plenty of flat sections of orchard for prams and wheelchairs, there’s onsite facilities and there’s coffee! We loved the very “insta worthy” apple row bowling and they’ve even got a kids scavenger hunt to keep the kids occupied.

Oh and we haven’t even mentioned the cafe yet! Head in for coffee and treats! They will selling baked goods by the wonderful Lenswood General Store & Post Office. They will also be serving their very own Apple Juice and Paracombe Premium Perry’s sparkling apple juice.
