Strawberry Picking Brisbane
Raise your hand if you enjoy the outdoors, strawberries and quality time with your Brisbane kids? If this sounds like your kind of day out you should get along to Strawberry Fields located in Stanthorpe and Palmview which is located on the fringe of the Sunshine Coast. Strawberry Fields is a large commercial Strawberry farm that offers you the chance to PYO (pick your own) during strawberry season.
This means they will be on offer at Stanthorpe from November to May and at Palmview from June – November 7 Days a week.
Palmview Strawberry fields is the older of the two farms and is fully equipped for kids, boasting a tractor playground and plenty of picnic tables amongst beautiful surroundings to enjoy their bounty or a packed picnic from home. While you are there you may wish to try some delicious homemade Strawberry ice cream from their scrummy cafe menu. We have heard this could be some of the best icecream in Brisbane. It doesn’t stop there, if you have a real sweet tooth the pancakes with strawberries and cream may be to your liking.
Running since 1980 they have been delighting customers for years with groups visiting from as far as Hervey Bay and Tweed Heads. Because it is a commercial farm, your Brisbane kids will get to see the Strawberry Fields team in action as they tend to the requirements of the plants. On offer are also group tours with your choice of BBQ lunch or Devonshire tea and catered birthday parties (you can make appointments for these through their website).
Why not plan an outing for your mothers/parents group? Nothing like a bit of fresh air and a satisfied tummy to ensure your little farmers sleep soundly that night.
While you can buy strawberries all year round, picking strawberries is seasonal June until November. Their Stanthorpe farm supplies in the off season (and also has a pick your own facility). In the off season the Palmview farm is open Thursday until Sunday- in Season 7 days a week.
