Secret Creek Cafe and Restaurant, Lithgow

Hidden away at the foot of the Blue Mountains (it is a secret, after all) is this excellent cafe and restaurant that helps sustain the Australian Ecosystems Foundation, which has a focus on saving habitat and Australian wildlife. During a meal with bushfoods and Australian taste sensations (such as kangaroo eye fillets stuffed with macadamias), you can take a guided night walk of the 5-hectare, feral-proof sanctuary, seeing bounding bettongs, potoroos and the special quoll house, where eastern quolls are being bred for release back into the New South Wales bush. The property has an additional 200 hectares of bush and is involved in planting wildlife corridors in the area.
