If you are arriving by car there is no need to book, just turn up. Please note, we cannot accomodate large buses.
It is a great idea to 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.
Chestnuts tend to fall by mid March and finish by mid/late April. Walnuts start to fall in earnest by late March into 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 walnuts that have fallen have already been gathered.
