Sorell Fruit Farm

Hobart & Around

Pick your own fruit (including strawberries, raspberries, cherries, apricots, peaches, apples and loganberries) at this intensively planted 5-hectare farm. December and January are the best months for variety, but different fruits are in season at different times – check the website for a nifty chart. Head east through Sorell towards Port Arthur; you’ll see Pawleena signposted on your left.
