Constructed in 1862 and authentically restored, the Homestead and outbuildings are classified by the National Trust of Australia. Within the homestead is a dedicated museum containing a unique collection of artefacts depicting early Colonial lifestyles; the families who lived on the property were pioneers of both the wine and oyster industries in Port Macquarie. Set on seven magnificent acres including an established vineyard and orchard, the well-kept gardens still display 150 year old trees, shrubs, bushes and a Heritage bamboo glade entrance.

Unique in Australia, Douglas Vale is the only volunteer run, not-for-profit enterprise, producing six exclusive wines, including the famous Portabella Port from original vine stock.

Tours of this outstanding property and Cellar Door tastings are available on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday between 10am and 3pm. Bring a picnic to enjoy in the arbour, children can be entertained with some fun activity sheets and the property is Access friendly.
