Our 15 acre lavender farm is just an hour’s drive from Melbourne in the beautiful Yarra Valley. Learn about the different varieties and uses of lavender, the plants’ life cycle, and how and when we harvest and dry the flowers. Not only is lavender beautiful and fragrant in the garden, it has hundreds of uses (literally) and we use our lavender to make gorgeous products you can buy in our gift shop. Our chef uses it in the kitchen too, so while you’re here, head to our tea room and enjoy breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea with home-made lavender scones/tea/ice cream.
Enjoy a stroll through the rows of lavender, experiencing the different varieties, breathe in the fresh country air and the scent of lavender, gorgeous on a warm day or after we’ve had rain. The colourful blooms in our cottage garden and views to the distant hills make Warratina a beautiful and tranquil place to visit.
The majority of our lavender is harvested annually in January, so check above to see how much lavender is currently flowering here at Warratina.
