Discover the wholesome community store in the Port Stephens Hinterland
Gone are the days of picking up your holiday groceries from the big supermarkets. On your next trip out to the Port Stephens Hinterland, you’ll want to invest in some good old-fashioned country hospitality and help support a small-town local business.
One spot that should be your absolute go-to for all things snacks, meals, local goods, and everything else in between is none other than The Woodville Store.
“The Woodville Store is believed to be one of Australia’s oldest continually running businesses, still carrying on the same services it was licensed for in the mid-1800s and has been in its current location since 1863.”
The local gem of a spot has been serving the community since its inception back in the mid-1800s and with current owners, the Kirwan family taking over in April 2020, the boutique grocery and retail space continues to shine a light on local produce.
Wandering around the store, you’ll notice an abundance of local products including polymer clay earrings and accessories by Molly Moo & CO, sweet honey from Largs Honey, fresh bread from Hunter Sourdough, a range of cuts from Hungerford Meat Co. and so much more.
Need a caffeine hit? They’ve thought of that too! With The Coffee Cubby located right next door, you’re invited to drop in, pull up a chair by the Paterson River and take in that crispy countryside air.
