Amazing view!! We came here for boozy afternoon... drinks in the sun with million dollar water view. Watching the blue sky, boats, people paddle boarding, sea eagles flying over, the reflection of sun on the blue water.... Great place!

Had lunch there this week and it was amazing. The food was excellent, service friendly and the views very good. The pork belly was outstanding and the accompanying vegetables very well cooked and fresh. The desert tasting platter was excellent too. Will be back.

We went to the Boathouse on two days for lunch and recommend it. We sat downstairs in the bar area and ate oysters, arancini, salt & pepper squid and beetroot hummus. What a life!!

It was a glorious sunny Saturday afternoon and the boathouse has an outdoor verandah overlooking the water. We enjoyed some of their house brews and some hand cut chips with rosemary salt. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location is sensational.

I was there in October and from memory they did have disabled access and the women’s toilet was very roomy. Agree with Graham best to contact them directly as it is well worth the visit.
