I just love going to Ferry Park ! We meet local friends there for breakfast on a regular basis and have never been disappointed. The food is superb, the ambiance is wonderful, the service is excellent and you will be back.

You will never wait for very long but you will enjoy this wait as you watch all the water activity ! The animals, the birds, the canoeists, the boaters, the anglers are all out there on the river right in front of you sitting on the deck overlooking the mighty Clarence River. Ahhh ...the serenity.

If you want to take-away you may but here you will be able to purchase your cheesecake, muffins or cookies all the 'yummys' sold in all the best coffee shops with your excellent coffee, or a meal from breakfasts to excellent mains as sold in all the best inner city restaurants. Or buy some local chutney sold in all the best Maclean Ferry Park restaurants ! You will not regret stopping here, all the locals eat here and that endorsement is the best there is.

Ferry Park is the visitors centre at the Maclean turn off and houses the local art and craft shop right next door to this excellent restaurant.

If you drive on in through Maclean you will get to see the Scottish town in a
Australia and you will be able to rejoin the highway on the northern side of the town. Not taking you out of your way at all. Bonuses all around if you stop at FERRY PARK !!

We have just had another stop at this very popular little restaurant on the way home from a holiday. It has a nice relaxed atmosphere, a great back deck overlooking the mighty Clarence River where you can watch the water dragons on the bank below, yummy fresh food and treats, excellent coffee, clean amenities and friendly, welcoming staff. What more could you want while on the road? The front verandah is now pet friendly which was very welcomed by us as we had our dog with us this time. The staff made a fuss of him and even gave him a sausage free of charge for being so well behaved. Highly recommended for recharging your batteries whilst travelling.

Just stopped at the Visitors information Centre at Ferry Park, which also houses the Ferry Park Cafe Restaurant. Delightful view of the Clarence River, yummy BLT, slices and coffee. Lovely staff. Great spot for a short stopover.

Blink and you may miss Ferry Park Cafe on the Pacific Highway, but do stop... A little bit of yesteryear outside in classic old ferry's... but the gem on a hot day is the shaded deck out back. Nice food, well presented and some decent coffee made well. Nice carrot cake and 'naughty' things and all well presented - Breakfast 0800 till 11.30 am

Water Dragons abound... BIG dudes... and its great to see them in their natural habitat.

Do visit the great ladies in the attached visitor center, ladies with local knowledge, some interesting art and crafts - not excessive prices, and they will give you guidance of the general area.

I have stayed in Maclean many times and not once had I gone into the town itself. A little elegant town beside this massive river... Go into Maclean... WORTH A VISIT... nice people, everybody smiles and I am told they have four pubs all with cool beer...

PET FRIENDLY.. Ferry Park Cafe will allow you to have your pets on the deck. Fantastic on hot days

Great service, quick and friendly, which is good for when travelling and stopping off for a short time. Facilities were clean.

Good was great, really fresh ingredients and very tasty at a great price.

Would recommend you stop here and enjoy the food, amenities and view.
