A beautiful location, plenty of shade and fantastic history yet the price and service does not do it justice. Extremely over priced and the food just isn’t worth it. Service was really poor, not very friendly, unorganised and has a definite lack of customer service....More

Peninsula Farm not far from where we stay. A Tea Gardens, is a farmers cottage over-looking the Swan River, much patronized. The food is gorgeous! Many varieties from sweets to savoury. The scones is to die for.

It's well worth a trip out to Tranby Farm homestead, the food and service is good whether its for lunch, fine dining or simply afternoon tea you won't be disappointed. Watch the boats go by on the river or explore the history of the homestead.
