Dutch Windmill - Accommodation - Private Airfield - Stone Ground Spelt Flour - Wines

Welcome to The Lily, so close to the Stirling Range, The Lily is your perfect base to explore the region.

The Lily Dutch Windmill is an authentic sixteenth Century design brick 'ground-sail' mill. The five-story full-size windmill, with its 22 Ton cap and a sail length of 24.6 metres, is one of the largest traditional windmills ever built in Australia. The mill is a fully-operational windmill producing wholemeal stone-ground Spelt flour for IGA stores, health shops, commercial bakers and home users around Australia.

DC3 Dakota C47 Gooney Bird - a stay to remember. The Lily now offers you the opportunity to stay in a true icon of aviation - an original 1944 Dakota used in the second World War in Indonesia and Australia.

At The Lily you will find unique self-contained accommodation in sixteenth Century replica Dutch houses. The reception is situated in the original and reconstructed 1924 Federation style railway station from Gnowangerup.

The Lily airstrip is adjacent to the windmill and you are able to park your own plane secure and close to the accommodation. Please check the airstrip details on the website.

Breakfast Basket is available for accommodation guests, seven days.

Yardup Cottage and Shearers Quarters

10328 Chester Pass Road, Amelup WA 6338

Phone: 0427 279 241



Located 100 kilometers north of Albany and just 10 kilometers from the Stirling Range National Park, Yardup Cottage and Shearers Quarters is ideally situated to explore the Great Southern region. To the south we are spoiled with spectacular views of the Stirling Range National Park, with the Bluff Knoll car park a short 15 minute drive from Yardup.

‘The Stirlings’ rise to more than 1000m above sea level. They are home to countless stunning bushwalks to suit all fitness levels and a rich diversity of unique wildflowers many of which grow nowhere else in the world. Further south the Porongurup Range, with bushwalks in abundance and various cafes and restaurants, is a pleasant and scenic 45 minute drive.

The historic city of Albany with its rich Anzac heritage is roughly 1.5hrs from Yardup by car. The coastal town of Bremer Bay with its rugged coastline and pristine waters is also easily accessible by car, roughly a 1.5hr drive in a south-easterly direction.

Yardup Cottage

Built in the early 1900s, Yardup Cottage is a small and charming, self-contained, two-bedroom homestead situated on our family farm. The cottage has been home to three generations of our family.

After sitting idle since the 1970s, it was restored by Richard’s mother Sally Milne in 1993, and has been open for guests to enjoy as short stay accommodation ever since.

Complete with kitchen, bathroom and cosy lounge, the cottage is an ideal rural getaway for a couple or small family looking to experience all that the Great Southern region has to offer.

In the warmer months the quaint front verandah makes the perfect spot to sit with a cuppa and a book, taking in the unspoiled views of the Stirling Ranges. When winter sets in, time is better spent in front of the wood fire with a glass of Great Southern Pinot Noir.

You will have the cottage entirely to yourself with peace and privacy to enjoy the wide open spaces all around you.

Yardup Shearers Quarters

Formerly a functioning and practical accommodation for travelling shearers, Yardup Shearers Quarters has more recently found a new lease on life while retaining its authentic appeal.

The Quarters sleeps up to 12 people in six dorm-style rooms, making it ideal for groups looking for a real rural Australian experience.

All bedrooms are private and can be locked. The kitchen, sitting area and bathroom are communal in the true style of traditional shearers quarters , however it is likely you will have the quarters all to yourself.

You’ll feel light years away from the hustle and bustle of city life as you swap stories by the communal campfire looking over the Stirling Ranges (for use in  non-restricted fire months only).

The Quarters have been operating as short-stay accommodation at Yardup since 2002, when the last of the travelling shearing teams stopped staying on-farm.

Mt Trio Bush Camp & Caravan Park is situated in a peaceful natural bush enclave on a working farm bordering the Stirling Range National Park and is an idyllic base from which to explore the Stirling Ranges. The renowned Bluff Knoll is situated just 10 minutes from camp. By car, the Stirling Ranges are 4.5 hours south east of Perth and just one hour's drive north from Albany.  
Leisurely walks around the camp reveal an abundance of seasonal orchids, wildflowers and birdlife. The communal fire pit is a great place to share stories, drink
wine and toast marshmallows.
On colder nights the camp lounge know as the ‘Bluff Knoll Ski Club HQ' with its wood heater is a cosy way to spend an evening in the bush. At night, the peace of the Camp Ground is interrupted by the calls of the Boobook Owl and the Tawny Frogmouth. Enjoy the bush with the luxury of 'power' and hot clean showers.
We have spacious powered and unpowered sites at Mt Trio.  No bookings are required except for powered sites for the Easter Break and the Queen’s Birthday Sept/Oct long

Camp Kitchen - One of the best camp kitchens you will see. This wonderful outdoor undercover kitchen provides campers with preparation areas, free gas barbeques, fridge/freezers, microwaves, toasters, kettles, fresh water and seating & tables. A fire pit is also provided for those that wish to cook on hot coals (Subject to fire restrictions).

Toilets and Showers - Flushing toilets and HOT CLEAN showers are the little luxury you need after a bush walk through the Stirling Ranges. Campers are always pleasantly suprised by our clean facilities. There are disabled facilities as well as is a baby’s bath and change table. Power is available for hairdryers etc.

Laundry - For those that get stuck, Laundry facilities are available.

Log Fire - An open fire is provided near the camp kitchen for the enjoyment of all campers.  Here many yarns are swapped over a glass of red wine.
Impromptu sing-a-longs and poetry recitals occur and the kids toast their marshmallows (subject to fire restrictions). A fire pit is also provided for those that wish to cook on hot coals (subject to fire restrictions). No private fires please due to bushfire risk!

Table Tennis / Information Room - This indoor/outdoor room provides the chance to have a friendly table tennis table challenge. Here you can also ‘identify ‘the ORCHIDS you have found on your walks by comparing them with the stunning photographs taken locally by our own Jarrad Dawson. There are also some wonderful wildflower, bird, reptile and fauna pics. And for the younger children a small confined grass area and sandpit is situated just off this room.

Camp Lounge  - The Bluff Knoll Ski Club HQ - An indoor/outdoor Camp Lounge known as the Bluff Knoll Ski Club HQ lounge provides shelter from colder nights. The lounge has a specially designed wood heater by Richard ‘Bear’ Hoar made from tractor brake drums.
