Bookings 

  • A lot goes into planning your picnic, so please book 10 days in advance. 

Numbers

The more the merrier! Luxury picnics can be booked with a minimum of 4 people and a maximum of 60 people. Packed picnics are bookable in groups of two. 

 

Dietary requirements

Our picnics can be modified to suit most dietary requirements. Let us know when you make the booking and we will do our best to cater to your requirements. 

Mother Nature
Our admin team will be monitoring the weather and will reschedule or provide a credit for picnics booked for any days that are forecast to rain. 

CherryHill Orchard expects the cherry trees to be in blossom throughout the festival, however if the trees blossom earlier or later that predicted, we will contact you to reschedule your booking.   

Lockdown Flexibility  

If your event can't go ahead due to a change in government restrictions, we are happy to pop the booking on hold or reschedule, at no extra cost.

Cancellations

A lot goes into planning and preparing your party, but we understand sometimes things change. We're happy to reschedule or credit your booking with 7 days notice. Cancellations with less than 7 days notice are not eligible for a credit or rescheduling. If government restrictions impact your event, we will work with you to reschedule or credit your booking, with no additional charge.

Security Deposit 
Our picnics are precious, to protect them we will pop a $200 hold on your credit card when you arrive to our market stall. We hope at the end of the day we can release the funds, however any broken items, damages, extensive cleaning or missing items will be deducted from this security deposit. We of course will be in contact if this is the case. 

Alcohol
Please drink responsibly. Our liquor licence only allows you to pre-purchase alcohol, it does not permit you to BYO and does not allow you to take away any remaining alcohol, regardless of whether they have been opened or not. 

Sun Safety 

Umbrella’s will be provided to offer shade during your picnic. While we try our very best to position you in a shaded position at the time of set up, as the sun moves throughout the day, you may be exposed to direct sunshine. Please remind all guests to bring adequate sun protection (sun block, hat, water) for their own safety. 

 

Bee’s 

Bee’s play an important role in a cherry orchard, so please expecting there to be plenty buzzing around. Natural insect repellent will be provided and food will be covered. First aid will also be available on site if required. However we do not recommend this event to people who are anaphylactic. Bee’s are attracted to bright colours, perfumes and hairspray, please take this into consideration when you are getting ready for your day.
