Some events and locations related to Chestnuts:

Wandiligong Nut Festival

Celebrate the nut harvesting time in the Victoria Alpine valleys in Wandiligong. Nestled among heritage trees & gums near Morses Creek, at the historic Alpine 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 more.
