A lovely historic place to visit

The gardens look great and they have tidied up the entertainment areas out the back, which are fantastic for weddings or high teas.

We had been talking about going to the tea house for some time and finally did for Saturday lunch. The drive was very pleasant and the surroundings just beautiful. The food and service was great and we thoroughly enjoyed sitting there watching all the different birds and butterflies flying in and out of the trees. Was something different to the... More

I was looking forward visiting the tea house then to take the kids on the little bush walk. Was disappointed there were no cakes displayed at all... and limited food offerings for dietary requirements. Kids got a pie and milkshake... looked like it was bought from the servo... and my zucchini slice and salad was drenched in dressing.... Although I... More

Apparently, this is the oldest remaining building in north Queensland and it certainly has some interesting history about it, which you can read on the signs and historical books at the tea house. Nice outdoor dining area with big umbrellas for shade, making it quite pleasant even on a very hot Townsville mid-summer day. No views across the range from... More

Great atmosphere in a genuine heritage home. It's just far enough away from Townsville that you really feel like you're escaping the hot humid city, but close enough to just drop in for lunch. Food and coffee is consistently good. Worth the drive. One of our favorite places to bring visitors.

We have visited these tea rooms many times as locals to Townsville and its on the 'must do' list when friends and family visit. These tea rooms recently changed ownership and the service and food is much improved. The caramel tart is decadent and my husbands favourite. The home made scones, in about 10 different varieties, are my favourite. It... More

We visited for morning tea. It was lovely to sit outside under the shady trees and garden and enjoy our delicious scones and great coffee. You have the option to sit outside or inside the tea room building. The heritage building walls are lined with historical memorabilia, lovely old building with a lot of original features. There is also a... More

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
