Heritage Apple Sale

Red cross

To the best of White Hat’s knowledge, this event or location is currently cancelled, postponed or suspended due to COVID-19 precautions. If in doubt check with the organiser or institutioninvolved. White Hat will constantly monitor events and venues in an attempt to update listings when conditions change.

The National Trust’s annual Heritage Apple Sale is an opportunity to savour the wonderful tastes of heritage apples from your own backyard. The Trusts’ gardening team has selected around 40 different apple varieties from the National Trust collection, providing an amazing variety of shapes, colours and flavours that you won’t find at the supermarket. From the buttery richness of ‘Ribston Pippin’, to the tang of ‘Pine Golden Pippin’ and the highly sought after ‘Cox’s Orange’ and ‘Bramley Seedling’, there is something for all tastes.

All trees have been grafted on-site by our gardening team onto rootstocks well suited to home gardens. Our gardening team will also be on hand to offer advice on growing a great crop.

Entry to the sale is free. If you a buy a tree at the sale, entry to the Gardens is included. All apple varieties are $30.

Twilight Jazz at Cruden Farm

For White Hat, the Twilight Jazz at Cruden Farm is one of the special events of the year. We strongly recommend you gather the family together and get down to one of the most special gardens in Australia as there is only one chance a year for the general public to experience it at the special time of twilight.

Our rating - 5 Hats
