Welcome to Porters Lodge

The Porters Lodge has comfortable, bunk-style and family accommodation set against a beautiful mountain backdrop. We have a fully licenced bar and serve freshly cooked hot meals and snacks. 

We're nestled at the base of Porters Ski Area in the Craigieburn range, so perfectly located whether you're here for the biking, hiking, the stunning views or simply passing by. Drop in and say hello! 

Our bar and bistro is open 10am - 8pm in spring and summer.

With a menu stacked with homemade burgers, sandwiches, soups and classic Kiwi dishes, it's sure to satisfy.

Chill out by the fire, or on the sun deck, with a local craft beer, a glass of wine or a hot toddy.

Your gateway to exploration and adventure


Whether you're here to ski, to explore the legendary Castle Hill rocks, disappear into the peaceful hiking trails, take in the stunning alpine vista or hurtle down one of the mountain bike trails of the Craigieburn Range, we have it all to offer right on our doorstep. 

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