Think of Young and cherries spring to mind. That’s natural enough for a town that is renowned for this bright red little fruit. The cherry harvest starts approximately in the first week of November and continues through to the New Year, and brings hundreds of people to town to pick and to pack the fruit. Young is proud to be known as ‘The Cherry Capital of Australia’.
With over 400 hectares of vineyards planted throughout the Shires of Young, Harden and Boorowa, this emerging premium wine growing area has come to be known as the ‘Hilltops’ Wine Region.
