The Old Shearers’ Quarters Café

Where history meets modern comforts

Our café is located in the lovingly resurrected shearers’ quarters that are over 100 years old – be sure to ask about its history! It is a beautiful venue – the perfect place to relax and enjoy the atmosphere of The Rustic Maze & Country Garden.

Open Saturday and Sunday from 9.30am to 4.30pm, our café offers great barista made coffee (using beans from local coffee roasters Art of Espresso), a selection of artisan tea blends as well as a range of other beverages & refreshments.

Enjoy scrumptious homemade cakes and other delectable delights, including gluten free options. In addition, we serve light meals freshly made onsite, including gourmet sandwiches, homemade soups, pies, quiche and lasagna. As we use mainly local, fresh produce, our menu will change with the seasons. 

We are also excited to stock and serve a wide range of jams, relishes and chutney from ‘In a Pickle’ – all these yummy condiments are made locally, just up the road!

The kids are not forgotten: treat them to a ‘Jerrybang Jelly’ with  take-home cup – collect all colours! 

Private Functions 

Our café is available for private functions, groups & parties, specialising in group High Teas. Functions are by appointment only and can be booked all year round (including during the summer months and in July and August when The Rustic Maze would normally be closed) – we would be very happy to chat about your options.
