Surprisingly the prices here are really reasonable. We paid $20 for a schnitzel, chips and salad. Not what you would expect for in attraction food and it was really good

Whether you’ve been relaxing in the pools or racing down the SuperBowl, the Tea Kiosk Café & Grill is the perfect spot to take a break and grab some refreshments. Based in the original Government Tea Kiosk (opened in 1904), the Tea Kiosk Café & Grill offers casual dining options both indoors and on the outside decks. There’s something to suit everyone’s tastes, including hearty local fare, a variety of international family favourites and an array of mouth-watering pizzas made fresh in our authentic pizza oven. Along with our main menu there’s a breakfast menu and one designed especially for the kids, while an assortment of snacks cater to those who want to hurry back to the fun and excitement of the pools as quickly as possible. Of course, there’s also a full range of hot and cold drinks, and a delicious selection of ice creams and ice blocks. So if you fancy some hot food after the hot pools or a cool sip after a long dip, swing by the Tea Kiosk Café & Grill and dive on in!
