The Gardens Tearooms is located within the Rockhampton Botanical Gardens, this amazing location means we have more to offer than just great food!

Entry to the Gardens is Free and Parking is Free.

We open everyday except Christmas Day.

We have a Cafe style menu to suit all members of the family in a very child friendly setting.  The majority of seating is outdoors under the 150 year old Banyan Fig Trees but we also have indoor seating available.

Our unique out door venue is ideal if your looking for a place to hold your Birthday Party, Baby Shower, Bridle Shower or Engagement Party.  There are large areas available, also under the Banyan Fig Trees.  We are very flexible with catering and offer High Teas, Devonshire teas, Breakfast or Lunch Menu options.


We have a gift shop located within the cafe which stocks the largest range of Rockhampton and Australian Souvenirs in Rockhampton. You are able to browse through at your leisure.

Excitingly we took out the 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019 Certificate of Excellence Award with Trip Advisor for Things to do in Rockhampton.
