We visited here for lunch and sat outside under the amazing tree shedding it's autumn leaves, by the creek side. Both our lunch dishes and our drinks were superb. All over a really beautiful experience!

Wonderful, thank you. Glad you enjoyed your meals. We look forward to the leaves turning on that tree every year and it never fails with its stunning show of colour a rare sight in a rain forest.

Rainforest Cafe is my favourite cafe in the area - the veggie breakfast is amazing and the views next to the creek are beautiful. Staff are also super friendly and helpful :)
