Outback dining at its best

Tastes of the outback from breakfast to dinner

Enjoy home-cooked country fare in heritage surroundings.

The Welcome Home Café, Tearoom and Restaurant is the place to be for generous, outback fare prepared in our own kitchen. From huge country buffet breakfasts to the special Stonegrill® Dining Experience, it’s the outback on a plate!

The beautifully-restored 1920s building (on the site of the original Welcome Home Hotel from the late 1800s), welcomes you, as it has welcomed outback travellers for generations.
