Things to Do Article Count: 10
There are a host of things to do and see around the villages - walks, historical buildings, picnics, camping and lookouts over spectacular wilderness areas.
Both villages are very small and can be easily accessed by foot or a short car trip. We encourage you to explore at a leisurely pace and kindly ask that you leave nothing but footprints, and take nothing but photographs.

Pick your own walnuts and chestnuts Article Count: 5
Picking your own walnuts and chestnuts is a fun activity for the family or just the opportunity to find fresh high quality nuts for eating or cooking. There are two seasons for walnuts. The green walnut season is in December and some properties are open, so you can use this special product for your own favourite family recipes. During the main season in autumn at both Mt Irvine and Mt Wilson, several properties open during March and April each year for mature ripe walnuts and chestnuts and they invite people to visit and pick their own nuts.
So, come and pick your own walnuts and chestnuts. There are established nut orchards with large, good quality, fresh chestnuts and walnuts. Chestnuts need gloves to pick up the spiky shells which have fallen to the ground, and break them open to get the chestnuts. Walnuts are just picked from the ground.
Drive around the villages and look for signs outside properties where you can pick nuts. Some properties are regulars each season and other properties advertise only when they have nuts available for picking.
The regular properties open each season are in the table below. It is a good idea to call first and check when they are open.
