Regional, Australian Capital Territory

Poachers Pantry, home of some of Australia's best smoked goods, is nestled in the Hall Hills, just outside Canberra. The property produces a wide variety of smoked meats, poultry, game and vegetables, which are cured and smoked using traditional methods. Produce is available from the Farm Shop or head to the cellar door for Poachers Pantry's own line of cold climate wine. Visitors can also drop into the Smokehouse Cafe, a quaint weatherboard farmhouse that serves contemporary Australian dishes using the property's smoked meats and other locally sourced fare.
