Our canteen provides delicious morning and afternoon teas, as well as light lunches. Hot and cold drinks are available. A range of souvenirs are on sale. A variety of wildlife paintings by local, well-known artists are also on display. Take advantage of our BBQ facilities and enjoy a family picnic with a difference.
