In roughly the same amount of time it would take for the L90 to spit you out into the Northern Beaches, you could be frollicking down a peach orchard, picking perfectly formed fruit as you soak in the sun and pretend you’re living in an endless rural Italian summer. The 100 acre orchard at Canoelands was originally purchased for a mere 100 pounds, and today you can gather endless blood plums, candy plums, yellow and white nectarines, and of course, peaches. When the glorious summer stone fruit season has passed, you can also score tomatoes and eggplants. You can get a-picking for $5 per person ($3 for kids) and a kilo of produce is about $6 on average. It’s not just about fruit here, either – the farm also runs regular bee and blossom tours, and for just $3 you can hitch a tractor ride, taking in views of Marramarra national park before visiting the farm shop for a scoop of homemade ice cream.
