Surveyors Hill offers delicious lunches, seasonal and freshly prepared, matched with a range of wines, from sparkling to fortified. The bistro, surrounded by vineyards and olive orchards, overlooks stunning scenery. Guest accommodation, including meals on request, is available seven days—the perfect base for exploring the Canberra/Yass region. We are part of the scenic ‘Hills of Hall’ sub-district of the Canberra wine region, just 10 minutes from the edge of the city.
All Surveyors Hill wines are made from grapes grown on site. Choose from Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Touriga, Shiraz, Grenache and Tempranillo.
Vineyards are 550 to 680 metres above sea level on the site of an ancient volcano which was active more than 350 million years ago. The result is deep aging, granitic-like rocks, known as ignimbrite, of a coarse structure which yield low fertility sandy soils. The climate is almost identical to that of central Spain, between Rioja and Valladolid.
Surveyors Hill is dog friendly – in outdoor areas – not in cellar door/bistro.
We also offer breakfast and dinner for our accommodation guests on request.
