"Come and live in the Cherry Capital of Australia"

Consider relocating to this rural community where the population is under 10,000 people.

This area is incredibly beautiful, particularly in September/October when the Canola Fields are brightly lit with yellow flora. The area is also rich with wheat, oats, pears, strawberries, cherries, peaches, nectarines, prunes and apricots. As you can see, this the place you want to be, all year round.

The town's claim to fame are two big cherries next to the Railway Station. They are a symbol of the town's stone fruit industry. Cherries were first planted in the area during the goldrush. The town is also known as Lambing Flat.
