Welcome to the View Cafe
Ultra modern View Café, perched up on one side of the dam wall next to the info center, is a gorgeous destination unto itself, or makes a great starting or finishing point before exploring the surrounds. Settle into a seat on the terrace or in the conceptual dining room which juts out towards the water, and enjoy a coffee and piece of homemade cake or, on weekends, an all day breakfast. The menu offers a wide selection of dishes to suit all tastes with the usual favourites like bruscheta, eggs benedict, homemade pies and a selection of fish dishes all prepared on the premises using fresh ingredients by our chef and his team. From the café there’s the option of checking out the grounds below via a series of short circuitous pathways which wind their way to the dam’s edge via landscaped gardens, where a couple of giant concrete and timber structures create the sense of viewing the dam through a framed picture. Otherwise take the scenic stroll along the top of the dam wall which doubles as part of the mountain bike trail.
