Secret Creek Cafe and Restaurant
Anglers will understand the ‘secret creek’ joke and previous diners will attest to the delightful surprise waiting at this down-to-earth jewel tucked away at the Secret Creek Sanctuary wildlife reserve. This is a very special Australian experience, with dining in a traditional timber-slab building, wildlife hopping past the windows, native Australian offerings such as loin of kangaroo in Dorrigo pepper crust, a selection of surprisingly elegant dishes and friendly, unaffected atmosphere. For every cent spent in the restaurant, the owners make a donation to the sanctuary.
Secret Creek Sanctuary, 35 Crane Rd; (02) 6352 1133; open Thurs–Sat for lunch and dinner, and Sun for lunch
