JAZZ™ Apples - Now in season

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.

Learn more about Lysterfield Park here.

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.
