Things To Do

The Porongurup region is full of world class climbing, hiking, wineries and sight-seeing.  Whether you’re the adventurous type – or looking for rest and relaxation – the Porongurup’s has something for everyone.  Woodlands Retreat Chalet is right in the heart of the Porongurup National Park – and a short trip from wonderful vineyards and tourist attractions.  We’ve put together a little list to help you choose – but the spa is always hot if you’d rather just sit back and enjoy the view.


There are some stunning wineries in and around the Porongurup’s.  We’ve listed a few here for you – but if you want a more comprehensive list, websites like the PPA and the Mount Barker Visitors Centre can show you a wider variety.  Sitting on the verandah taking in the view is always a good spot to enjoy a glass of your favourite drop.

Places to eat

During your stay you’ll be supplied with complimentary wine and snacks and the kitchen is fully self-contained. If you’d like to sample some delicious local restaurants, we’ve included a few links to point you in the right direction.
