Stumbled on this place while touring. Service very friendly and helpful. Great bacon and eggs done nicely while enjoying beautiful view of the lake. Good coffee and vegemite toast as well. Should have stayed for lunch as well. Nice place to break up a tour.

This rustic 80-year-old tea house features tropical gardens and a stunning location overlooking Lake Barrine, a rainwater-filled volcanic crater. Four of us stopped here for a break while driving around the Tablelands in Queensland. We descended a path from the large parking lot and found...More

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!
