The Orchard at Montague boasts a unique experience right next to Lysterfield Park at the southern foothills of the Dandenong Ranges.

Unlike any of the apple orchards in Victoria, the Orchard at Montague provides a memorable and fun experience with family and friends just 35 kilometers from Melbourne. The Orchard incorporates a stunning café, Stella’s Kitchen offering dine in with orchard and garden views or take away to enjoy on the lawns, a pick your own orchard, a retail store Bill’s Orchard Gate, where you can taste and shop seasonal fresh produce in addition to locally sourced artisan products.

Situated right next door to the 220-hectare Lysterfield Park which features a range of recreational activities from the lake walking circuit, mountain bike trails, sailing, canoeing, bushwalking plus the chance to see some of Australia’s native wildlife including Kangaroos and birds.

We look forward to welcoming you.
