Cairns Botanic Gardens Testimonial



The Restaurant/Cafe has been designed to take best advantage of the cool breezes and is a welcome 5-10 degrees cooler undershade than the surrounding scape, making a break refreshing and relaxing!

The Restaurant/Cafe has undergone a renovation in 2009 and we look forward to enjoying your company when next you're looking for a relaxed sunday breakfast, or a unique place for a midweek business lunch.

It is so serene and tranquil, you'll forget that you're only 5 minutes from the city centre!
