Enjoy a little pocket of country life in Pialligo, just minutes from the centre of Canberra. Stroll through the gift shops and garden centres that line Beltana Road and visit the orchards from February through to May. Make the most of your visit and enjoy a delicious lunch at Pod Food or Pialligo Estate Farmhouse.
After lunch explore a vineyard without leaving Canberra at the Mount Majura Vineyard, just 11 kilometres from the city centre. Mount Majura Vineyard offers a variety of experiences such as gumboot tours around the vineyard and structured tastings. The gumboot tour is a self-guided nature trail through the vineyard, where you'll learn about the site, viticulture, and have a chance to take in the best view from the top of the vineyard. Once a month there is also the chance to join guided Vineyard Excursions.
