Valley View Orchards is significant to the locality of Pakenham Upper because of the surviving evidence of the development of orcharding in the district. This includes the manager's house, (reputedly dating from c1915) part of the early Woolf coolstore (once one of the largest privately owned stores in the State) and notable early refrigeration plant nearby.
This orchard was one of the biggest in the district and is one of the much smaller number to remain active.
