Good range of quality food to choose from. Take the short walk opposite to explore the river - it's worth it to stretch the legs. The cleanliness of the toilets were most impressive.

We spotted the sign for the cafe just as we came over the one-way bridge. After a quick manoeuvre ... not much distance after the bridge ... didn't see a sign on the other side ... we found a nice large car park. The cafe menu was good. We had a rabbit pie and a curry veg pie ... Both were very tasty ... Coffee was fine.

We walked up to the first waterfall site but it was a bit disappointing due to the lack of rain ... nice forest walk though.

A great place for a snack and for stretching the legs.

We stopped here for a coffee and muffins whilst travelling between Nelson and Picton. The coffee was good, the cheese muffin was tasty but the white chocolate and raspberry muffins were delicious!

Staff were friendly and helpful and the location was superb. After taking some of the forest walks and visiting the DOC campsite just a few hundred metres from the cafe / site office we decided to stay at the campsite for the night.

This us a great place to stop for good food and drink in fabulous surroundings.

We did just that, lovely icecream! The walk to the river was made even more special by the appearance of 3 Tui birds! Great spot for a swim in Summer.
