I visited last week and ordered a Big Breakfast, which goes for $19.50 from memory. I like my eggs poached but they don't do their eggs poached...only scrambled or fried.... I asked for scrambled but they had apparently run out of scrambled eggs - used them all the day before. Hmmm.... They're eggs! Crack them, add milk, scramble... It's very,... More

I have passed the Tea Rooms turn-off on numerous occasions since 1997 when I first moved to Townsville. I made the plunge last weekend, steering my motorcycle up the Herveys Range Road escarpement accompanied by my 11 year old son. I'd promised my son a big breckie, which I'd been told were worth the 30 odd minute drive alone. The... More

We recently visited the Hervey's Range Heritage Tea Rooms and wondered what it would be like with the new owners. We weren't disappointed. The service was excellent, the food was tasty and the coffee nice and hot. I was pleasantly surprised to see how well they catered for gluten free diners. I enjoyed a delicious Walnut and Pear tart while... More

We stopped in at the Heritage Tea Room for an afternoon tea to finish off a great camping trip up the Range. The Coffee was better than most in Townsville and the scones were soft and delicious. We love the rustic feel of the Tea room and the historical memorabilia the covers the walls. Well done to the new owners.... More

When planning our holiday I had checked out the Hervey Range Road on the Net, and read about the Heritage Tea Rooms, and thought they sounded nice, stored the info at the back of my mind. We had been up in Mt. Surprise, visiting Undara Lava Tubes, and drove from there down to Townsville which takes about 6 hours. There... More

The drive out there was nice. The location is beautiful. The Tea Rooms are rustic & full of character. BUT!!!! The food is well below average & coffee… undrinkable. The poor standards really let the place down. My advice. Take a drive, look around. But skip the food & drinks. Save your money & taste buds.

My grandmother lived in a 100 year old former post office when I was young. This place with its wood stove etc reminded me of then. I was a bit worried reading some of the reviews, but we had a fantastic breakfast served by friendly staff and the coffee was the best I have had in a while. An enjoyable... More

I went here for brunch one Saturday with a girlfriend, reminded me of going for Devonshire tea in the dandenongs, as the day was cold and wet (I kid you not). Well, the place is, or course, built to get breezes, so it was funny trying to get a spot that was warm. It's an old qld outback place, so... More

A beautiful part of the world to visit. Very scenic drive up from Townsville. Thoroughly enjoyed the walk to the look-out (some extra signage and written history would have been helpful) although the hostess at the tea room did fill us in later. Had a very delicious morning tea.... the coffee was hot and the slice/tarts were scrumptious. Would definitely... More

Paid $14.00 for COLD bacon, eggs and toast! Eggs were like rubber. It looks like the staff cook the bacon and eggs and 5am and keep it on the bench. Bacon was cold and rubbery and even the fat was starting to set. Very disappointed. Coffee was weak. Asked for it to be a bit stronger and they charged me... More
