PICK YOUR OWN AT WYUNA FARMS, KULNURA
PARKING OFF ROAD

People tell us we have the best oranges they have ever eaten. Is it the chicken manure or the fact we don’t use chemical sprays on the trees? Could be a combination of the two, however we thought we would share the experience with others.

Visit the Wilson’s Wyuna Farms, hear about the history of this fourth generational farm and how it has evolved since Lorraine’s father, Ray Walpole, settled here in 1935, aged 15. Or just chat with Rodger, Lorraine, Greg or Kate and pick your own oranges to take home.

Bus tours or group bookings available – prior booking essential via phone or email.

Watch the Oranges bee sorted by the Farmers sorting machine, see how they are packed for market. It is a great education for children.
