The Porongurup Village Inn, Shop & Tearooms
Good ol' home fashion cooking in the heart of the Porongurups
The Porongurup Inn is an ideal place to stop for lunch during your travels around the Porongurup Range. Famous for their Devonshire Tea with home made scones with lashings of cream and Scott’s famous Beef & Burgundy Pie with salad, we recommend you do your walking before lunch!
Then there’s Di’s home made desserts, with ingredients straight from their organic vegie garden. The Mulberry Sundae will melt in your mouth and tantalise your taste buds!
The sticky date pudding will have you booking a room so you can walk it all off later. Group bookings by arrangement please.
Avocados and Olives
Jilba, located on Millinup Road, is a small family operation producing avocados, table olives and Angus beef cattle.
Hass & Lamb Hass Avocados are available for purchase in tray lots from November to March. Why not buy a tray and share with family and friends.

Appointment is required for intending purchases and picking.

Award winning distillery
Great Southern Distilling Company, a family owned craft distillery, was founded in 2004 and is the very first distillery to legally make Single Malt Whisky in Western Australia.
Today the flagship brand Limeburners is an internationally-acclaimed Australian whisky, and has become synonymous with premium quality. In 2017 and again in 2020 Limeburners was honoured by the American Distilling Institute as the World’s Best International Craft Whisky. A bottle of Limeburners is also on display at the WA Museum in Perth, as an example of a WA brand that is recognised as one of the best in the world.
From three distilleries in iconic locations in Albany, Porongurup and Margaret River, Great Southern Distilling Co and sister distillery Margaret River Distilling Co distil spirits using the very best Western Australian agricultural produce.
The Limeburners distillery is located on the edge of Princess Royal Harbour in Albany and is open to the public for craft spirit tastings of Limeburners Whisky as well as sister spirits Tiger Snake Whiskey, Dugite Whiskey and Giniversity Gin. Casual lunches, distillery tours and gin blending classes are also available.

Small batch, locally hand crafted spirits
Woodlands Distillery was created out of a shared love for whiskey and a passion for promoting the local region. This ‘dream’ has become a reality and is now a unique space where high quality, small batch spirits are produced, while also applying sustainable principles to the distilling process. From Gin, Vodka, Brandy, Liqueurs and the aging Whiskey, these spirits are crafted at the base of the Porongurup Range. You couldn’t find a better, more fitting space to nurture and develop Australian spirits.
