The Avoca is a highly awarded gastropub in the small town of Avoca in the Pyrenees winemaking region of Western Victoria, situated within a beautifully restored country hotel dating from the gold rush era of the 1860s.
They specialise in the use of quality local produce in their food and have a strong focus on the unique wines of the local and surrounding wine regions. The range of varietals grown in the Pyrenees, Grampians and Great Western and the different wine styles produced are second to none in this country and they are very privileged to be able to represent so many of them for their customers.
Their drinks list is famous for the depth and breadth of its selection of local wines and also for its extraordinary beer list. They have received Gourmet Traveller Wine magazine’s award for Australia’s Best Beer List every year since 2018 as well as the Award for Excellence from Wine Spectator magazine in New York. They are also recipients of the People’s Choice Award/Certificate of Excellence from Trip Advisor for the past eight years in a row.
The Avoca is an essential stop for anyone wishing to experience dining at its finest while visiting the Pyrenees or Grampians in Victoria’s west. Bookings are strongly recommended on most Friday and Saturday nights and are absolutely essential on long weekends.
