Family Business since 1977

Locals still fondly recall the early days when Jack and son Alan opened the business.

In those days, Jack was a real identity in the liquor trade having been a well known publican and personality at the Bank Hotel, Dungog and later the Spinning Wheel Hotel, Raymond Terrace.

As Port Stephens grew as a popular destination, so did Alan’s family. Wife Jo and children Lisa, John and Emma warmly remember many Christmas days helping Dad at the shop by bagging ice and filling the cool room with beer.

Today, McCauley’s Bottleshop operates by the same family values……and there is always a McCauley around to say g’day.


What People are Saying

“I will drive passed three other bottleshops just to get that personal touch that you get at McCauley’s.”

I’ve had great service then I’ve had McCauley’s Bottleshop service. ALL the staff make you feel extra special they know your drink preference and it’s there before you ask, they ask about your partner, your children and how you have been every time you drive in. I will drive pass 3 other bottleshops just to get that personal touch that you get at McCauley’s. We don’t say it enough but a big thanks from The Lingards!
