Welcome to Douglas Vale
Douglas Vale is a totally volunteer run historic homestead and vineyard in the centre of Port Macquarie. This unique historic tourist attraction has been developed by the local community to bring back and interpret the last remaining fabric of a successful wine industry of the 1800’s.
Constructed in 1862 and authentically restored, the Douglas Vale 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 7 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 6 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 10:00am and 3:00pm.
Bring a picnic to enjoy in the arbour, kids can be entertained with some fun activity sheets and the property is access friendly.
Due in no small part to the lovingly manicured lawns and gardens as well as the museum housed within the main building, the property has become an ideal venue to hold a variety of events.
