Was rather busy for a mid-week so this affected service but honestly visitors aren't usually in a hurry when coming up here anyway as it is nice to enjoy the outside relaxing sit. There is now a rather large gift shop of locally made items which though products are quite good I did prefer the... read more

We arrived at 10am when the tea rooms were to open with most of the about 50+ tables almost full, as a table was vacated someone else claimed it yet there was no feeling of being rushed. The tables are scattered in the many rooms of the tea rooms, it's like a rabbit warren, with bits and bits to look... More

Great out of the way stop. Coffee is good and scones to die for. There is a camp ground opposite which is basic, cheap and friendly m

The setting was just perfect to enjoy our variety of teas and large serving of scones. Everyone was very satisfied with the food, although the serving of cream could be more generous (perhaps ask for extra) it was a bit of a shame that the tea took so long to arrive at our table. There were quite a lot of... More

Thank you for taking the time to post our review. We are more than happy for customers to ask for more jam & cream - we have only recently down sized our serves because of so much wastage, but there is always plenty available. More

On a week-end visit from Brisbane to see our youngest who is with the police in Townsville - he took us on a drive into the range and we came across this lovely little establishment by chance - surprised by the number of people and further surprised by the great food and service. Had an excellent lunch and one of... More

Had the scones, huge serving size and great coffee. Lemon Meringue Pie also very good. Partner had a fantastic steak sandwich-very filling. Lovely little gift shop with many original locally made gifts to suit all ages. Especially loved the little cloth reading books.

What a step back in time. Great to see the old time building turned into eating areas. You can eat inside or out. Plenty of country food to choose from. The best scones I have had since Grandma made them.

The Tearooms as known locally in Townsville is a pleasant 30 minute drive and a damn nice (ride) with a few nice corners on the range. This privately owned heritage cafe is in an old historic Inn which has been (relatively) well restored to its bush best. The cafe serves a wide variety of cooked snacks and meals to a... More
