Unlike any of the apple orchards in Victoria, the Orchard at Montague provides a full day of fun with family and friends just 35 kilometers from Melbourne. The Orchard features Stella’s Kitchen, a 120 seat café where you can dine in or take away, a pick your own orchard, as well as a store where you can taste and shop seasonal fresh produce and locally sourced artisan products at Bill’s Orchard Gate.
All located right next door to the 220 hectare Lysterfield Park which offers a range of recreational activities from mountain bike trails, sailing and canoeing, bushwalking and see some of Australia’s native wildlife including Kangaroos and birds.

Bill’s Orchard Gate
Bill’s Orchard Gate is named after Bill Montague who started our family owned business when he planted the first apple trees on the Narre Warren North Orchard three generations ago.
Growing over the years to become one of Australia's largest fruit growers, we have learned a thing or two over that time.
The Little Orchard
Our Little Orchard Tours have now closed for the season. All our fruit has been harvested and we are preparing for the next season. We are looking to recommence our tours in Summer 2021.
If you would like to be the first to hear about our Orchard tours for next season, register your details below.
Stella’s Kitchen is named after family matriarch Stella Montague, who passionately cared for her family while they worked on the Orchard at Narre Warren North.
Located right next to Lysterfield National park, the café offers a new destination with close access to the scenic national park and the beautiful landscape of our Orchard.
We are excited to welcome visitors to tour our new expanded fruit processing facility that will have the capacity to process more than 280 million pieces of fruit each year.
We look forward to welcoming you.
