Welcome to 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.

Your gateway to exploration and adventure


Whether you're here to ski, board, to explore the legendary Castle Hill rocks, disappear into the peaceful hiking trails, take in the stunning alpine vista, catch  trophy trout or hurtle down one of the mountain bike trails of the Craigieburn Range, we have it all to offer right on our doorstep. We are only 3km from the skifield carpark and can organise a shuttle to get you there.

We also have 2.3km worth of purpose-built mountain bike flow trails, starting and finishing right at the Porters Lodge (open summer only).
