Location Of Big Red Strawberry Farm
You’ll have to pass by Cactus Valley and Cactus View Restaurant to get to the Big Red Strawberry Farm in Brinchang, Cameron Highlands.
It used to be that you could go up all the way without paying anything.
But now there is a parking attendant stationed at the bottom of the hill. The parking fare is RM5 (as of Nov 2022) per vehicle.
Ease Of Parking At Big Red Strawberry Farm
Big Red Strawberry Farm has no shortage of their own parking. Once you drive up the hill there, are parking lots at the top. However, there are only a few spaces that are sheltered from the rain.
Even if these nearby parking lots are full, don’t worry. Just follow the signs for the exit and there are even more car park slots around the hill!
There are many signs cautioning drivers on going slow when driving up and down this hill. The way down is treacherously steep.
We find it an ironic coincidence that there are a few car repair shops right after you reach the bottom of the hill when leaving Big Red Strawberry Farm.
