  • Such an odd place, not very friendly or interesting. Coffee was fine but everything was realy dirty, including the toilets. Wouldn't recommend stopping here.  more »

  • A little bit odd, they have the creepy factor for sure. The video was informative and thought provoking. Lot’s of passive aggressive signs everywhere which were humorous (to a point). A rather sad and lonely eel can be found in some stagnant looking water. I wouldn’t rush back.
  • Interesting place. You can sit on possum fur at the cafe and browse the adult humour cards pasted on the wall. It’s worth stopping here on the way if you need a break. We had fish bait with rice that was ok.
  • Come and experience what it's like to be a real bushman. Feel free about joking with owners. Coffee (NOT EXPRESSO, LATTE OR ANY FANCY NAMES) are bad. Enjoy the little puzzle to get the keys and reach the toilets.
  • If you're REALLY interested in deer, worthwhile. Otherwise, you could give it a miss.
  • Owner looked arrogant(May Be I am Confused) had no respect for Customers , The Lady at the cafe was very pleasant and Coffee was really nice .
