Porters Lodge

Porters Lodge has comfortable, bunk-style family accommodation set against a beautiful mountain backdrop. We have a fully licenced bar with the best craft beer selection in Castle Hill and serve freshly cooked hot meals and snacks in the restaurant.

We are nestled at the base of Porters Ski Area in the Craigieburn range, so perfectly located whether you're here for the skiing, biking, hiking, the stunning views or simply passing by. Drop in and say hello, enjoy a bite to eat and a cold drink, or maybe an awesome Underground Coffee to go to get you back on the road!

We welcome group bookings and can host functions, corporate events and weddings by arrangement.
