Gardener's Lodge - High Tea - Camperdown, Sydney

I purchased an online voucher to high tea for two at Gardener's Lodge.

Situated in Victoria Park, this gothic-style rustic sandstone venue is one of the oldest buildings, built in 1888.

The cafe at the lodge is set up by an Aboriginal elder, Aunty Beryl. In conjunction with a menu filled with native Australian ingredients, the lodge is also an advocate for Aboriginal employment - providing employment and training for Indigenous Australians.

English Breakfast


Wattle Seed Pancake - I 'think' the topping is goat's cheese or ricotta.



Top Tier: 

- Chocolate Muffin - SO SO rich!!!
- Almond Slice? - Not quite sure what it was but, whatever it is, it was delicious

Bottom Tier 

- Lamb Skewers with Mint Sauce?? - I think it was mint sauce, the lamb skewers were tender and full of flavour.


Bottom Tier

- Garden Salad
- Salmon Wrap
- Mini spinach and ricotta tarts

We had a lovely meal, lovely view and good food! The voucher saved us quite a bit. Ended up being about $19.50 per person.
