A good place for lunch or a drink after your walk. A good range of light meals and a gift shop if you want a souvenir. You also buy your entry tickets to the park here.

Basic range of food and drinks but good if you're self catering at the the nearby cottages and good after a walk to the falls. Service was a bit mixed as we had to go and ask for one meal as they'd forgotten it.

Great to get drinks and food before your walk or returning from. A cafe, information desk and shop are included as well as great amenities. Indoor and outdoor seating available. Lots of space out on the grass.

Huge servings, could easily feed two people with one meal (we had the beef burger and the calamari).

Hi All243sa, thanks for your time to review us. I'm glad you enjoyed our meals, we love the beef burger for it's awesome size too. We are very used to feeding hungry hikers and we don't like to disappoint. The calamari is a new product so I'm glad you liked it, it's good to know we make the right changes.... More

For New Year day we took our granddaughter to see Russell Falls. Before the short hike we had lunch on the veranda of the Cafe and listened to the Kookaburra's laughing and other native birds chirping. The best background music i have ever had at a cafe for a long time.

Hi W3557OOpatrickc, thanks for your time to review us. It's a pretty special place we have here, and we absolutely love it just as much as our customers. My favourite time is in the afternoon when we are visited by many families of Superb Fairy Wrens, all hopping around catching the insects and their sweet little calls. We often have... More

Hi Sheryl W, thanks for your time to review us.

The cafe serves quality food at a reasonable price and makes for a break between walks in the national park. There are always a variety of choices on the menu. Walk around the gallery after you've placed your order and find out about the park, it's history and the many choices you have of places to see during your trip.... More

As it was raining and cold when we visited Russell Falls, we welcomed the chance to sit inside and enjoy the warmth and get out of the rain. Service was friendly and reasonably prompt, especially considering there were 2 tourist busses stopped in the car park. The coffee was much better than expected
