AMELIA PARK

a name associated with quality meats, fine dining, premium wines and thoroughbred horses.

Over 60 years ago, a lady named Amelia Curtis first leased land to V&V Walsh founders Vern and Jean Walsh in the Busselton region. The brand Amelia Park was created in tribute to this strong and courageous lady and has been used across a family businesses created and run by the Walsh Family.

Amelia Park Wines

Our dream was to see people enjoying Amelia Park lamb and beef complemented by a great range of red and white wines. Partnering with winemaker Jeremy Gordon in 2009 – a previous Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy winner – was the start of an amazing journey into the wine industry.

Buying in quality grapes from older vines gave Jeremy and the fledgling Amelia Park wines the opportunity to produce the best wines without the decades of developing a vineyard like other established brands.

To this day, Jeremy works closely with a select group of premium vineyards to achieve the superior and consistent fruit that characterises his exceptional wines.

‘The secret to great wine is as simple as spending  a lot of time in vineyards, walking vineyards, tasting fruit and relying on your senses more than anything else,’ Jeremy says.

Since 2009 Jeremy’s great skill as a winemaker has been recognised with multiple awards both in Australia and internationally. In 2015 he was a finalist in the international Red Winemaker of the Year at the prestigious International Wine Challenge in London.

Amelia Park wines are now exported to the UK, United States, China, Singapore, Philippines, India, and other growing international  markets.

Amelia Park Winery

Not satisfied with producing a fine range of Amelia Park wines, we started another chapter in the Amelia Park story, inviting long-time family friend and businessman Mr Chen to invest in building a modern wine-making facility and stunning cellar door on Caves Road in the heart of Margaret River.

Today Amelia Park winery, managed and partly owned by Jeremy and Daniela Gordon, is visited by thousands of local and overseas visitors every year enjoying the fine range of Amelia Park wines including the classic Margaret River varieties of Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Merlot.

Amelia Park wines have consistently been awarded five 5 Red Stars in the annual James Halliday Australian Wine Companion, confirming Amelia Park as one of the best wineries in the Margaret River area.

Building the winery and cellar door was a labour of love and a real family affair, as Peter’s son Brett designed all the landscaping and wonderful garden setting including the very Australian entrance to the property and daughter Samantha was heavily involved in the design and décor of the cellar door and later the Amelia Park restaurant.

Amelia Park Restaurant

To complete the dream and create an iconic landmark in the famous Margaret River region of Western Australian, Amelia Park Restaurant was built and opened in 2017.

Situated next to the Amelia Park winery and cellar door, the 120 seat restaurant has a stunning décor and expansive views of the vineyard.

Award–winning head chef and restaurant manager Blair and Renee Allen, are proud owners of the restaurant business.

The spacious restaurant and open kitchen has created a unique and special ambience that Blair and Renee have coupled with gorgeous food and great service.

Blair decided on a wood-fired grill and oven to give customers a ‘bit of theatre’ and to do justice to the Amelia Park lamb and beef that he’s so proud to have on the menu.

Renee plays an enormous part in welcoming visitors and highlights that while the focus may be on great food and wine, it is also important to cater for all their wonderful guests with a full complement of beers, spirits and cocktails.

Amelia Park Lodge

Amelia Park Lodge, located on Bussell Highway near Busselton, completes the Amelia Park story. Purchased in 2014, historic Newtown House, which was built in 1851, has been tastefully restored and converted into a stunning  restaurant.

The restaurant and lodgings is managed by Samantha Walsh, who was determined to create a venue the whole family can enjoy. The old Newtown House interior offers a dining experience with a sense of tradition, while the modern outdoor annex and verandah are surrounded by beautiful gardens and spacious manicured lawns, designed by Peter’s son Brett Walsh.

To offer visitors to Amelia Park Lodge every eating and entertaining option, the Amelia Park Tavern opened next to the heritage-listed lodge in late 2017. With an inviting interior, high ceilings and colonial style décor, the tavern also features a whisky lounge, champagne tasting and an outdoor kitchen fitted with a large wood oven. A spacious verandah overlooks the wide-open lawn area and picturesque gardens.

The lodge and tavern once again complements the Amelia Park quality brand.
