What's happening at the farm

Updated 14th April 2024
Kookootonga will be open 9-4 EVERY day March/April 2025

We update this site constantly to reflect what is happening in the orchard.
Each year can vary, but chestnuts tend to start falling in early/mid March and finish by mid April. Walnuts start to fall in earnest by late March into mid/late April. Because of their huge popularity the demand for walnuts often exceeds what our trees can supply. 
Those who arrive late (especially on Sundays) often find that the nuts that have fallen have already been gathered.

Visitors who arrive during the week find that the farm is very peaceful.

Cards and EFTpos accepted - no surcharge

If you are arriving by car there is no need to book, just turn up.  No entrance fees.

We cannot accommodate buses.

Logon to ChestnutsAustralia  for  storage, preparation and recipes - great site!

Check out our Tips for Visitors if you have never been to Kookootonga, or if it has been a while since we have seen you.  It will answer lots of questions and help you plan your visit.

It is a short season, usually only lasting for about 5-6 weeks during March and April  

When you arrive at Mount Irvine follow the green and white signs to the Kookootonga car park entrance.
