Each year, it is when the leaves are turning astonishing autumn colours,
and when the mornings become a little bit more frosty,
that our local growers celebrate the nut harvesting time in the Victoria Alpine valleys.
It is in Wandiligong, nestled among heritage trees & gums near Morses Creek,
at the historic Alpine Park, that the Alpine community and the local growers
will welcome you to celebrate with them this important moment in Alpine life.
Just for one day, the park becomes a hive of nut-based activities
such as chestnut, hazelnut and walnut growers, nut-cracking tables,
chestnut roasting and nut-based cooking demonstrations.
The Wandiligong Nut Festival is a family friendly event.
Walking through gaily coloured market stalls, you will be able to discover
local art & craft stalls, local products (olive oil, pasta, preserves),
local food, local drink (coffee, beer, cider, gin and wine),
and local community groups.
During the day, you will find activities for everyone:
a petting zoo and face painting for children,
cooking demonstrations by local chefs,
live music, and so much more.
So come to visit us and be a bit more nutty
