Stunning. We were last here 3 years ago and it has improved tremendously. The new working mill museum is first class, and a unique display/exploration setup. Had morning tea at Roost cafe. Fresh scones straight from the oven!

We stopped in for a cup of coffee/tea and a slice of cake after a long hike at Robberg Nature Reserve. The cake/other baked goodies were great and reasonably priced. The coffee is decent as well and the overall service and experience pleasant.
