Lovely outdoor setting for a relaxing morning tea

We went there on a weekday for morning tea. It was very relaxing. Very few people on weekdays, hence the service was quick. The 600 metre walk is quite pleasant. There are lots of places you could take good photos with your family. I have been there on weekends and it does get very busy. The... read more

The Heritage Tearooms are well worth the drive, the outdoor setting is under trees making it nice and cool. The coffee and food is great a nice place to enjoy a coffee and relax.

Nice spot to grab a cuppa. Plenty of space, lotsa birds, feels well out of town but is only 20 mins from the Willows. Nice scones and good variety of them. Coffee wasn't flash though - was actually quite poor.

These Heritage Tea Rooms were a pleasant surprise. Really lovely surroundings and plenty of character. The food we ordered was all very enjoyable and reasonably priced - date scones, waffles, sausage roll, milkshake, thick shake, tea. Meals that other diners were enjoying looked great as well. Order and pay at the counter then a couple of young boys politely brought... More

I visited this place in hopes of something more than what it was. The service was average, with little to no interest shown by any of the staff in the customer. I have noticed a lot of Townsville places are like this. The meal was average - frittata which was quite reasonable accompanied by a basic salad drenched in something... More

When you want to go for a drive, but don't want to go too far, this is a great little place. Friendly staff, nice food and reasonable prices. Has a few leisurely walking trails if you are so inclined. Prefer to visit through the week as weekends are often busy.

This is an awesome spot to get away from the heat of Townsville. Service was really great and they have plenty of tea/coffee options. Only thing that really let them down was the banana bread and pie, not up to the standard of the rest of the place. Will still go back.

We visited the tearooms as a part of a ghost tour and had a great time. Food was amazing and the atmosphere was great. I had also visited previously and the scones are to die for! Great value for money.

We visited for a pre booked afternoon tea. It was lovely! The range of sandwiches, savoury treats, cakes, scones with jam and cream and endless cups of tea was amazing! Try the Hazelnut it really is lovely! The service was excellent, friendly, knowledgeable and attentive! We had a wonderful 39th wedding anniversary tea! Thank you so much! A great place... More
