YOUNG, NSW - THE CHERRY CAPITAL OF AUSTRALIA
The bustling and picturesque town of Young, set within the South West Slopes of NSW, offers an authentic country destination with a rich experience to all who visit. Ideally located in ‘The Hilltops’ food & wine region, Young shares its natural surroundings and easy going charm with visitors making the relaxed and easy journey to the town.
‘Pick your Own' cherries are available from mid-November until Christmas, creating the perfect excuse to take a memorable short trip!
Young is the place to be during the Cherry season. The National Cherry Festival is celebrating its 64th Anniversary in 2013 and has many new events planned.
Young receives thousands of visitors from Australia and beyond during the festival, providing the opportunity to the community of Young – also known as the Cherry Capital of Australia – to celebrate not only the cherry season and harvest (November-December), but the strong sense of pride that exists within the town.
The Street Parade is held on the Saturday, 7th of December. Other highlights of the festival include the Celtic Tattoo, Cherry Festival Carnival, Bush Poets, markets & stalls and much more. There are also many fringe events being held in the build up to the main festival.
