Elegant High Tea
Tea parties have become a quintessential tradition for our family, either at home or out and about. It's one of our favourite ways to slow down for a morning or afternoon, press pause and spend time together raise our pinkies and delicately sip perfectly infused tea and nibble delicious sweets treats.

Front Entry of Maldon Rose


Easter break this year was spent in Australia's first Notable town, Maldon to enjoy the 144th Maldon Easter Fair. After we settled into our Airbnb in a traditional miners cottage, we meandered up to town, where we found the most elegant, prettiest high tea rooms ever seen.

Adorned Door Roses


At Maldon Rose, their passion for all things pink and roses is their feature. Robert Gordon high tea crockery, carefully thought decor and pink pressed metal are incorporated throughout this divine tea room. Even the back gate is pink.

The front entry is beautifully adorned with a frame of roses and located along the Main St of Maldon, where you feel immersed in the history of the town. The tea rooms have found their place and the 'ohs and ahhs' from fellow tea enthusiasts set the tone for a decadent outing.

A tea party for two was on our menu. Choosing to take shade on the unseasonable warm day we dined in the alfresco courtyard, enjoying strawberry mousse cake and an iced rose latte. Whispers were widespread throughout the town of the delicious award-winning Scones Maldon Rose produced at the 'Great Aussie Scone Bake Competition' at the Maldon Hotel, we definitely had to try them out. We are no CWA judges but our taste buds were won over.

Maldon Rose is a perfect spot to enjoy some elusive alone time to immerse yourself in all the prettiness or dine with a group of old friends to reconnect and make new memories. The photo opportunities here are endless.

Sounds and looks great Philippa. I could almost taste those scones. Maldon is a great little town.
