Think you have to go to Japan to see the cherry blossoms? Think again

The Cherry Hill orchard in Yarra Valley is opening their farm gates for their Blossom Festival. Visitors will get to see rows and rows of cherry trees in full spring bloom, the perfect place to try the orchard's cherry beverages. 

Head to the four-day festival and make a day of it by feasting on food from visiting food trucks, listen to live music and walk through the orchard for the perfect photo op. Thirsty? The cherry farm will be serving cherry-based drinks including a non-alcoholic cherry spritzer, cherry and vanilla porter, and even a tart cherry cider.

Book tickets to the festival online. Get a bird's eye view of the festival by taking a helicopter ride over the orchard and beyond. Tickets are $50 per person and can be booked via email to Avalon Helicopters.
