Petty's Orchard - Templestowe

Petty's Orchard - Templestowe

Petty's Orchard in suburban Melbourne, is an apple orchard, wetlands and bird hide covering 44 hectares positioned along the Yarra River.

The orchard harvests over 200 different types of apples, pears and nuts. There are also several wetland areas throughout the orchard and an old packing shed which displays the history of Petty's Orchard.

In 1853 Thomas Petty arrived in Australia from England and selected land in the Doncaster and Templestowe area. It was Thomas Pettys' grandson, Thomas Henry, who, in 1911, first bought the property. Thomas Henry was the first of three generations of Petty's to work the Homestead Road orchard. The Petty Family managed the orchard until Parks Victoria purchased the property in 1981.

The Heritage Fruit Society manages and maintains the orchard's 12,000 trees which produce 250 to 300 tonnes of apples and pears each season. Produce goes to outlets such as the Victoria Market organic section, Organics by Lamanna in Brunswick and Ceres Market.
