Food Scene

This simple country cafe/restaurant is located 300m from Dreamview Cottage. If you need a coffee or a bite to eat, and don't wish to jump in the car its a good choice. In winter it has a wood heater so is nice and cozy. Service can be a little slow at times so its a good choice when you are not in a rush and happy to take in the country setting.

We recommend this cafe over any other in Nerang. It mainly caters for the cycling and mountain biking set which use the tracks across the road from the cafe. It offers good coffee and a contemporary menu.

A nice cafe located at Hinze Dam next to the Interpretive Centre. It serves breakfast and lunch and has nice views of the dam. The staff are lovely. The steak sandwich was yum!

This is the closest waterfall to Dreamview Cottage, and one of the best! A few years ago this was in fact a secret spot, but due to social media the word is now out. If you are looking for a quiet experience you could try a weekday. Otherwise, traffic is still not too bad on a weekend. It's a moderate walk in, and with some light scrambling as you get closer to the waterfall. Take your swim suit in summer!

This is another waterfall that was once a secret spot but is now becoming more popular due to social media. A reasonable amount of fitness is required for the walk in, but once you get there you will be rewarded by an iconic heart shaped swimming hole. Killarney Glen is on land owned by the army, and sometimes it shuts down for periods. You will need to check online to see its open status before heading there.

Canungra is a small village west of Beechmont mountain. It has a country atmosphere with a cute main street offering cafes, boutiques and stores. It's recommended to visit on the weekend when it's a hive of activity and market stalls are open.

A must see if you like to visit National Parks. It's an easy yet scenic walk in and there are glow worms inside the cave. Note, there is no swimming allowed in the gorge, so plan on going elsewhere to swim if it's hot.
