Looking at the map we thought this was a lot further off the main road, a pleasant surprise to see how close it is. On a sunny Sunday the Teahouse was very busy and that didn’t stop the staff from being friendly and welcoming. We...More

Beautiful located restaurant, offering delicious food (especially the foccacias and scones) and great coffee! Totally in love with their turmeric latte! Enjoy my time here every time. Especially sitting outside gives you a great relaxing view over Lake Barrine.

Operated by the 3rd and 4th generations of the Curry family, the Tea House at Lake Barrine has been offering delicious breakfasts, lunches, and cafe drinks, boat tours, and a beautiful view of the Crater Lakes National Park tropical rainforest since the 1920s. An excellent stop off on a visit to the Tablelands, or even a destination in itself, we would love it if you stopped by!
