PLACES WE LIKE TO VISIT. EVERY TOUR IS DIFFERENT 

Tuckerberry Hill is a family owned and run spray-free strawberry and blueberry farm where you can pick your own berries! They also have a small café showcasing their berries, including blueberry conserve, sauce and chutney to take home! Nothing compares to the sweetness of freshly picked berries, except maybe picking them yourself!

 Lighthouse Olive Oil is the largest olive grove on the Bellarine Peninsula with over 11,000 trees with over 11 different varieties of olives. Sampling their range of extra virgin olive oils and three citrus oils will expand your understanding and appreciation for subtle and not so subtle differences in the different oils on offer.

Oakdene Vineyard When walking up to the cellar door at Oakdene you’d be excused for thinking you’ve fallen down the rabbit hole into Wonderland! Surrounded by eclectic art works and entering the “upside down house” you’ll be delighted by the range of wines on offer for tasting. Wander round the garden to Mr Grubbs café for an exiting menu of relaxed good food and indulge in another glass of wine
