I like to participate in life rather than be a spectator. Music, dancing, theatre, travelling, food, cycling and walking are some of my passions. Writing is an enjoyable pastime that allows me to share my experiences.

Jing Jo Cafe Restaurant serves up tasty Thai food in an iconic Aussie town. They open at 5pm for dinner service four nights a week and are located in the heart of the village behind Hampden Deli and Harcourts Real Estate. Jing Jo is the Thai word for kangaroo, so it could be called "Kangaroo"Cafe Restaurant at Kangaroo Valley, but don't worry it isn't on the menu.

All of the food is freshly prepared using herbs and vegetables from the chef/owner's kitchen garden as well as locally acquired produce. The level of heat from chilli can be adjusted (mild, medium or hot) and they offer some gluten-free and vegetarian dishes.
