The crescent-shaped Mount Lofty Botanic Garden is situated on 97 hectares on the eastern slopes of Mount Lofty in the Adelaide Hills east of Adelaide in South Australia. The cooler, wetter location suits plants from temperate climates which are difficult to grow on the Adelaide Plains. Amongst the native Australian flora there are tree ferns, as well as exotic cultivated plants from cool climates including Rhododendron and Magnolia and the National Species Rose Collection.

There’s nothing like the taste of freshly picked strawberries. It’s hard to describe the juiciness and flavours – you won’t get it from any supermarket! And there’s no better day out with the family than hunting through our patch to find the perfect strawberry.

We’ve been running pickings at our farm since 1975, and never missed a season. It’s become an Adelaide institution during the warmer months, usually from November to April.
