drive up past the big dam and orchards to the TOP OF THE HILL!

178 Plummers Rd
Forest Range…

NOTE: Please do NOT follow your GPS – it is likely to take you for a very long detour via Fire Tracks! It will take an hour to arrive when it should only take about 25 minutes from the top of Magill Road. It is really easy to find – go straight up Magill Road which turns into Adelaide-Lobethal Road at Norton Summit, then after about 12kms ( yes – it is a winding road) turn left at Plummers Road! Read the instructions below for more detail!

About 35 mins drive from Adelaide GPO, Stella Creek Cherry Orchard is located at

178 Plummers Road, Forest Range. We are 1.8 kms up Plummers Road, at the top on the right hand side, as you come up from the Adelaide-Lobethal Road.

Stella Creek is the THIRD CHERRY ORCHARD on Plummers Rd – so drive up the hill past a large dam on your right and don’t stop ’til you’re near the top!! Look for number 178 and our sign (see above) at the driveway entrance to Stella Creek.

There will also be an A-frame sign on the corner of Plummers and Adelaide-Lobethal Roads as soon as cherry harvest starts.
