What else you should know?
The Edible Forest is located on the Yarra Valley Estate property, one hour from Melbourne. Public transport is limited to the venue, so we suggest you drive.
Whilst onsite, we also recommend you book a guided tour of the Edible Forest – ‘Tour, Taste & Educate’.
Be guided by one of the team members at Yarra Valley Estate, who lovingly created the space, and learn the health benefits and reasons why individual plants were selected as you meander through the six different areas including tea, wetlands, bush tucker, sensory, berry & woodlands.
Our Edible Forest isn’t like anything you would have experienced before – over 850 plants that are grown either for edible or medicinal purposes, are planted within a one-acre forest garden that supplies edible produce every day of the year.
Class Cost: $50 per child
Time: 2 hours
Edible Forest Tour: $10 per person
