TELL THE STORY
the finest orchards in the country
Going back to its roots, the Hills Shire reclaims The Orchards for a new generation to enjoy a vibrant community lifestyle immersed in nature

From the earliest pioneers settling to farms throughout the Hills Shire, it was understood that the fertile soil was perfect for orcharding. Farmers quickly became botanists and orchardists. Today, the land and surrounding rolling hills that The Orchards rests on, was once the heart of Australia’s citrus fruit industry.

In respect of such rich heritage in Australia’s pioneering history, Sekisui House is growing a new orchard to bring a new community together to harvest the zest that life has to offer.
