We enjoyed a delicious Devonshire tea while sitting on the upstairs balcony of the teahouse. Overlooking the quiet and peaceful Lake Barrine, this was a perfect place to spend an hour or so on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

Operated by the 3rd and 4th generations of the Curry family, the Tea House at Lake Barrine has been offering delicious breakfasts, lunches, and cafe drinks, boat tours, and a beautiful view of the Crater Lakes National Park tropical rainforest since the 1920s. An excellent stop off on a visit to the Tablelands, or even a destination in itself, we would love it if you stopped by!
