The Ironwood Estate Wines is definitely one to visit when travelling to the Great Southern Region.No trip would be complete without exploring the Porongurups and all the amazing area has on offer.
Surprisingly child friendly, this family run business welcomes families and accommodates its littliest visitors. The menu is vast with something to tempt even the fussiest eaters.
Our food was amazing and we opted to order a cheese platter as well as a salmon caesar salad which everyone had a pick at. Tasty, fresh and delicious we highly recommend both!
The grounds are huge and patrons are welcome to take a stroll amongst the gardens or find a quiet spot to take in the glorious view.There are also a few wide open spaces for children to stretch their legs and have a bit of a run.
Everyone will love the resident pooch who is very friendly and fluffy and seemed to enjoy the company of all. The owners are very good with keeping him away if people are not dog lovers or little ones aren’t too sure. But he is a lovely dog and our kids loved mauling the poor thing with pats and hugs.
There is a sweet little corner set up for children with a bucket full of toys and some kids books. This is inside where the wine tasting takes place, so everyone is a winner!
You could spend hours here just sitting back, dining alfresco and taking in the stunning views of the Stirling Ranges backdrop. There is plenty of accommodation nearby to suit all budgets and so much to explore. From the Ironwood Website:
The Porongurup Range , an 1100 million year old pre-Cambrian granite range that was once a forested island is now a 25.11 square kilometre National Park measuring 15 kilometres in length.

With 700+ wildflowers, 75+ bird species, stands of Karri trees, the Porongurup Skywalk, and bordered by vineyards it really is a ‘Range of Attractions’.
So much to see and do and Ironwood Estate is a definite must for families.
