Cottage style cafe with endearing personality immersed in beautiful flowers at the end of the heritage-listed Springbrook Road, on the Springbrook Plateau.
When the gates are open and the water fountain flows, it means the English Country Garden Café is open! Catalina and San are the hosts of the English Country Garden Café.
The place is quite charming with the shelves decorated with jars, pots, vases and teaware.
There are many beautiful flowers and plants that add beauty to the cafe, which is positioned in an extraordinary location within the Springbrook National Park.
The flowers in the English Gardens are different during the seasons. I love coming here to see this cottage changing with the nature around. I saw the cottage in the rain, in the fog, in the sun, in summer and winter!
A friend of mine told me one day there was a bull roaming in front of the English Gardens Cafe, which happened to be open in a weekday. Very probably the bull managed to get out from the fenced paddock of a nearby farm.
On the premises, there are tables in the dining room, outside and also in the garden. In order to access the garden, the order has to be around $10.00. The café has light refreshments, hot food and lunch. There is a variety of cakes, hot drinks and cold drinks.
Starting at Tallebudgera Valley, I hike the Cream Track with my hiking group. The trail is quite hard, being 5 km uphill with a gain of about 700 metres. It is possible to encounter the local wildlife when hiking The Cream Track. I met quite a big crayfish in a little creek that crosses the trail.
The Cream Track is one of my favourites! The trail has different aspects and different vegetation.
It is certainly heartening finding a café on the Springbrook Plateau and have a hot coffee! Plus the English Garden has lactose free milk, for the people who are lactose intolerant!
Having a break at the café helps to energise and get ready to descend the 5km of the Cream Track back to Tallebudgerra.
Usually, I call the English Gardens to check if it is open, especially when I hike in group.
Just opposite the English Gardens are the Goomoolahra Waterfalls and Picnic Area. The waterfall plunges 60 m down on the Warrie Circuit. Beside the waterfall, there is a great lookout over the valleys up to the coast.
The English Garden Cafe is reachable by road and there is plenty of car parking just in front of the Cafe.
Springbrook National Park has outstanding trails with spectacular waterfalls, beautiful lookouts, unique flora and fauna in the Gondwana Rainforest.
After a hike or a drive visit the English Garden Cafe, just add another highlight in your day!
