Pick your own strawberries on Brisbane’s Southside
The Chambers Flat Strawberry Farm has sprouted, offering visitors on the Southside of Brisbane the opportunity to pick strawberries locally. Located in Chambers Flat, The Berry Patch grows strawberries from June to November annually.
Once the crops are ripe and plentiful, generally around late July, the patches are opened up to public strawberry picking. Your Brisbane Kids will love wandering the rows of strawberry plants searching for the biggest strawberry and picking all the ripe ones they find along the way.
Support and eat local
The Berry Patch is a third-generation family business that not only grows and sells strawberries but also has a delicious range of jams, dipping sauces and other yummy stuff for sale on site. Pre-picked strawberries are sold prepacked, or grab a container and pay to pick your own. You can also check out The Berry Patch strawberries from the Jan Powers markets in Brisbane.

Strawberry picking tips
- Expect the unexpected, which is code for wear old clothes, take a change of clothes and pack a plastic bag in case shoes are so muddy they can’t go back in the car (you will thank us for this one).
- Pack hats and put sun cream on the kids, strawberry picking is not a shady activity.
- Feed the kids first. You can pick and eat as you go so make sure the kids have nice and full tummies so they are less tempted to gobble as they go.
- Plan ahead and find out from friends and family if they would like to buy some fresh strawberries or use it as a chance to gift some strawberries.
