Strawberry Picking at the Bilpin Fruit Bowl
Enjoy strawberry picking at the Bilpin Fruit Bowl. A visit to the strawberry farm is the perfect spring activity for families with kids of all ages.
Bilpin is a small town in the City of Hawkesbury local government area in the Blue Mountains, west of Sydney, approximately 1.5 hours from the Sydney CBD.
The Bilpin Fruit Bowl has a large range of fruit and vegetables available for picking throughout the year. They have recently put in a hot house and for the first time have strawberries available for picking.
The strawberry farm at the Bilpin Fruit Bowl is located inside a large hot house with open sides which allow plenty of fresh air for ventilation.
What you need to know about strawberry picking at the Bilpin Fruit Bowl:
There is an entry cost of $20 for adults, $10 for children aged between 3 and 12. Free for children under 3 years of age.
The entry cost allows you to eat as much fruit as you want as you pick it.
To take the rest of your fruit home costs $20/kg for strawberries.
Empty punnets and scissors for cutting strawberries off the vines are provided at the entrance. You can also BYO baskets and containers.
Bookings are essential and limited to 200 people every 2 hours.
There is a small shop/cafe onsite serving light meals and snacks as well as selling locally-grown fruit. Bathrooms are located next to the cafe/shop.
Picnics are allowed but expect everybody to follow COVID rules. Please bring your own picnic rugs and chairs and picnic in the designated picnic area only. There are no picnics allowed inside the farm.
You must pay for whatever you pick. (YOU PICK IT YOU OWN IT).
Please keep an eye on small children and ensure the vines aren’t damaged and fruit isn’t thrown.
While the hot house has a roof, we found the best strawberry vines to be located at the first aisle next to the entrance which was quite sunny – so bring hat, sunglasses, sunscreen.
I would suggest wearing closed in shoes as it’s a farm and you’ll be walking through dirt.
There are plenty of lettuce and bok choi varieties available at the very back of the hot house.
Enjoy your strawberry picking! We spend about an hour gorging ourselves at the strawberry farm and still took home a lot for later.
