Trelinnoe Park Cafe

Our Café is open periodically October to May.

We began the Garden Café to make the Trelinnoe visit more enjoyable! It provides a place to meet people, welcome them and tell them about the garden. Part of this is the pleasure of providing morning and afternoon tea and light lunches. As the garden is large this is enjoyed !

Our Café is open periodically October to May. Our building is beautiful, built in wood in harmony with the garden surroundings. Lunch on the verandah is like lunch in the garden! To enhance the wooden interior of the Café, we display paintings and craft for sale.


Our Accommodation is backpacker. It was previously a Single Men's quarters. It is set among trees in a paddock, near the Woolshed and about 150 meters from the garden. The accommodation has two bedrooms,a kitchen and a bathroom with a large bath. The kitchen has a cupboard full of plates, pots and pans etc ­a stove,a microwave and an underbench fridge and a lovely tree view out the kitchen window. Total peace! If sheep are in the near by yards our visitors seem to enjoy that as well!

Bring sheets / sleeping bag / pillow case / extra blankets, towels and food.
