Family Friendly Cafe and Playground 

You will work up a hunger after enjoying the attractions at Butterfly Creek and we have a delicious selection of homemade food. Our café is a great place to meet friends and family or for a business meeting. Enjoy the sunny inside deck, or our covered outside courtyard next to our children’s playground. We have a range of cabinet food and a delicious a-la-carte menu freshly made on-site by our talented chefs.

You can order yummy hot chips, burgers and a selection of other hot food, freshly prepared by our kitchen (note Kitchen close times below). Cold drinks, ice-creams and cabinet food are available until the end of the day, so you can pick up a tasty treat after exploring the park. Cabinet food may vary and is subject to availability.

Our coffee machine closes one hour before closing time, however you can still order hot chocolate, tea and cold drinks until the end of the day (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic are available).

““The café has a great range of food, something for everyone… And great coffee.  We loved that the kids could play on the playground and we could have lunch right beside them.” – Vanessa
