Poachers Way


The Poachers Pantry

Located on a farm in the beautiful countryside around Hall, 25 minutes' drive from Canberra, the Poachers Pantry is home to a cafe-restaurant, a winery and smokehouse producing an array of gourmet smoked meats. The Poachers Pantry is just one of the many delights along the Poacher's Way.

Gourmands have been enjoying the fine food and wine along the Poachers Way for some time. This meandering trail is based around the towns of Gundaroo, Hall, YassMurrumbateman and Bungedore near Canberra. It takes you through some of the prettiest country in NSW including the cool-climate wine growing region around Canberra known as the Canberra wine district.

You'll be able to meet the dedicated local producers over a pizza and wine tasting. At The Poachers Pantry where it all stared you can dine on Smokehouse platters featuring smoked meats, marinated vegetables, dips and breads, or smoked sea fare and a cheese platter.
