We took the long drive from hidden valley and were desperately in the need of a stop. We saw the tea houses and got some history as well. It is the oldest building in Queensland! Vegetarian breakfast was average. Coffee was strong and delicious. Scenery was beautiful. Worth a visit!

We always love visiting the tea rooms when we are in Townsville. The food and tea is delicious and the setting is so relaxing. The heritage building is lovely and there's a great farm walk to enjoy after your meal.

We always take family visitors for a trip up Hervey's Range to take a meal at the Heritage Tearooms particularly in warmer months because the temperature is always a few degrees cooler than in Townsville. There is an excellent choice of meals at reasonable prices to be enjoyed in the shaded garden area. Generally there is ample seating for a... More

We recently visited for breakfast and had a lovely enjoyable cup of tea and coffee with breakfast. Service was quick and friendly. The tea rooms quickly get busy we people coming far and wide. Some tables reserved well in advance but still room for those that pop in like we did. We enjoyed the short walk to view the old... More

This heritage cottage with its outdoor settings as well as indoor was all you could ask for in atmosphere. The food choices were wide enough to satisfy even our fussy eaters. Hot and tasty home-cooking served without too much waiting. Eating while being charmed by local birdlife including some rare species was fantastic. The road to it is in excellent... More

The drive to the tea rooms is very pleasant and parking is easy just out in front. The tea rooms have a very rustic feel and we were delighted to learn that the building is the oldest in FNQ. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning tea on the verandah. It was good value and delivered efficiently. Loved reading the history of... More

Simple meals and snacks served with good coffee in such a relaxing a calming environment. Even though it was very busy and obviously getting more and more popular the meals where served in reasonable time. Nothing gourmet but fresh and enjoyable in the well set up seating under the trees. Great to see so many families of all ages getting... More

These tea rooms take you back in time. Whether you sit inside amongst the antiques or out in the garden, the atmosphere is great. The food is delicious. We enjoyed the pies and scones with very good coffee. The drive home through the Hervey Range is quite beautiful and worthwhile stopping at the lookout point.

Hervey Range Tea Rooms is set in a lovely country feel setting. The surroundings are lovely and attended too with native plants. It looks very well looked after and cared for which is great to see. Could quite easily sit all day and admire the great atmosphere. Will be back soon.
