Combine good coffee, artworks from around Australia, animal life and lovely gardens, music (at times) from Smilie and Coralie, great hosts and interesting venue. I rate it as one of the better KI galleries and coffee stops.

Great place to have lunch after visiting Seal Bay Conservation Park. The gallery is well presented and the cafe is very peaceful and relaxing either on the back deck or under the tree. Some of the artists are there to talk to as well.

Great place to take a relaxing break and have some good food. Friendly kangaroos at close range and lots to see in the garden. Take time to stroll around.

We arrived almost on scheduled closing time desperate for a drink, but we were made to feel welcome and received friendly service. Coffee etc. was made freshly for us and we were not ever pressed to leave.
