Cottage Point Kiosk & General Store


Built around 1918, and located at the junction of Coal & Candle Creek and Cowan Creek, this rustic general store and cafe evokes the feeling of returning to a bygone era.

Looking out across the Bay


Arrive by road from the Ku-ring-gai National Park, or putter in by boat, and choose a seat in the outdoor courtyard or on the wrap-around verandah. The latter is my preference. The higher vantage point gives an expansive view down the bay, overlooks moored and passing boats, and allows you to observe the comings and goings of visitors and shipwrights, while you admire the historical photographs on the wall.

Restoring a Beautiful Halvorsen Cruiser


A free mooring is available for short provisioning stops. As well as offering a delectable selection of meals, cakes & muffins, coffee and alcohol, the kiosk sells most of the basic necessities for those who may be restocking their boat.

It's a great place to spend a relaxing few hours over breakfast or lunch. In addition to the regular menu and seafood menu, there are usually some pretty nice specials on the blackboard.
