Where to Pick Blueberries in Coffs….

Posted by: | Comments (3)

This post was originally published 23rd January last year, but I’ve been getting loads of questions about where to go pick your own blueberries in Coffs, so I’ve republished this for your information!

 

You know how it’s the end of the school holidays and it’s been raining and everyone is getting a little cranky? Well quite surprisingly I found the answer! Go blueberry picking!

I can’t believe I have never been out to this place. I’ve known about it for awhile but have just never got around to going out there. Located about 15 minutes from Coffs Harbour on Bucca Rd you can take the kids blueberry picking, then weigh and pay for them based on an honesty system. But what is amazing is the atmosphere and surroundings. It is SO peaceful out there and the scenery is stunning. The kids took their buckets and off they went, happy enough to go searching for their own blueberries. It was peaceful and it was quiet and almost immediately everyone relaxed, reset and calmed down (Mama included!).

The blueberries grow at all levels, so even little kids can find some to pick and there were HEAPS!

There is a gorgeous lily pond with heaps of turtles so afterwards the kids spent sometime turtle spotting and looking at draft horses in the paddocks around.

Overall a FANTASTIC way to spend the morning and to top it all off, we came home with some delicious blueberries! And they taste SO much better than store-bought, even my 5 year old said “Mummy these blueberries taste different, they are so yummy.”

Directions:

Head North on the Pacific Highway and take the Moonee/Nana Glen exit. Continue to follow the signs to Nana Glen until you come to Bucca Road (there is also Old Bucca Rd but you don’t want to take that). Continue along to 416 Bucca Rd, on the right hand side. There are flags on the driveaway and it is sign posted.

Park your car in the shade across from the shed and head inside to find some buckets.

Once you’ve finished picking, go in and weigh them – they cost $10 per kilo based on an honesty system. Our bag full was 600g so $6. Make sure you take small change or notes. And also hats and sunscreen and some water. And it’s a good idea to give the kids a snack before you go so they don’t eat all the blueberries!

Apparently there is less than 2 weeks of blueberries left, so head out there ASAP or wait until the season returns later this year. You can also freeze them so we might just go back in the next day or so!
