Pick Your Own Apples @Lenswood | Adelaide Hills

Pick Your Own Apples in the Adelaide Hills during Autumn

The perfect family friendly activity, go and pick your own apples @Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills this Autumn.

Enjoy a beautiful day out with the kids and start a memorable family Autumn tradition. Teach the kids about where their food comes from and taste the difference. Plus, apple picking is great for little kids because the apples are grown about 30cm off the ground and up so everyone can reach!

The town of Lenswood is well known around the world for producing some of Australia’s best apples and cherries and @Lenswood apples are not the apples you find in the supermarket – you are missing out if you’ve never eaten an apple straight off the tree whilst walking through an orchard! You will find eight different varieties available at different times throughout the season (some crossing over) – Pink Lady, Rosy Glow, Red Delicious, Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Fuji and Sundowners. 

Activities for Kids:

There are all kinds of other fun activities @Lenswood to keep the whole family entertained, including:

  • Giant outdoor games to play
  • Vintage tractors to play on
  • Kids scavenger hunt & info trail
  • Apple row mini golf
  • Farm Machinery on display
  • Sandpit

Farm Cafe & Shop 

Their Farm Cafe & Shop is stocked with locally produced food – why not grab something for lunch?

@Lenswood is a family owned business that started in May 2021.  Chris and Emily Shipway, the husband and wife duo who welcome you to experience their 23 acre slice of Lenswood in the magnificent Adelaide Hills, wanted their orchard to be a ‘Pick Your Own’ orchard so that families could experience their farm in the beautiful Adelaide Hills and experience the joy of apple picking.



The @Lenswood pick your own farm is about 40 minutes from Adelaide’s CBD via a beautiful scenic drive along Lobethal Road.
