Best for: Self-Catering, DC-3 Plane Accommodation, Dutch Cottages, Breakfast, $$$

The Lily Dutch Windmill is an authentic 16th-century design brick ‘ground-sail’ mill located near the towns of Amelup and Borden in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. The five-story full-size windmill has a 22-ton cap and a sail length of up to 73 feet. It’s one of the largest windmills ever built in Australia and is fully operational, producing wholemeal stone-ground flour. The windmill is part of a larger park that includes cottages, a 1944 Dakota airplane, and a restaurant.

Next to the windmill, you’ll find reception, the refurbished 1924 Gnowangerup Railway Station, and the unique accommodation that includes authentic 16th Century Dutch cottages, and a 1944 DC-3 Dakota airplane!

Review: We came to stay in the DC-3 plane but were stunned at how gorgeous the location was featuring the wide open fields, beautiful windmill, and mountains. The location is also very near (about 15 mins drive) to Bluff Knoll and many other mountain hikes.
