Pick Your Own Strawberries at Rolin Farm, Elimbah

by Southside Fun Mum (follow)
Rolin Farm at Elimbah (near the Glass House Mountains) has hundreds of plump, juicy strawberries just waiting to be hand-picked.

Pick your own this strawberry season!

Upon entry, you are provided with a basket to carry them in (once picked) and directed towards the rows with flags marked 'Pick Your Own'. We were worried that we would miss out on the best selection of these fruits since we arrived in the afternoon, but halfway through our harvesting, one of the young, foreign workers informed us that the flags had been moved so in actual fact, we had first 'pick'!

Hard at work.

It was a great experience for my girls to see the regular fruit pickers sitting in their carts with crates upon crates of these enormous, tasty fruit. The carts were a cross between a bike and a regular fruit cart - kind of wish I'd taken a photo now.

When our baskets were full, we returned them to the shop where we started and had them weighed. You pay for what you pick and the price varies depending on supply (I suppose?). Considering the size of the strawberries and quality, we were happy with what we paid.

As an extra treat, we also bought a stick of chocolate-dipped strawberries for each of us. So delicious! There were other treats available in the shop as well, including strawberry ice cream tubs.

The Big Strawberry!

As you can see in the photos, there are great photo opportunities. When in QLD, you must tick off the BIG STRAWBERRY from your bucket list (along with the big banana, big prawn and big pineapple). You've also got the obligatory photo boards where you stick your head through the holes to reveal (in this case) a strawberry body.

The perfect, fruity photo op!

For younger children, they also have a basic playground. My daughters are 6 and 8 years of age and they usually love playgrounds, but there wasn't much to it so they didn't stay to play.

My girls and I enjoyed our drive to Rolin Farm (50 mins from Southside of Brisbane). It was a wonderful opportunity for the girls to learn where their food comes from and see how it is grown in rows. The best part (other than eating the juicy fruits) was making strawberry jam when we returned home.

Make sure you take your family for a visit before the season ends!
