Where to Eat

Cafe Italia

Within the heart of the Indoor PlayTown, you’ll find Cafe Italia. Serving Italian favourites such as pizza, pasta and panini, grab a seat either inside the play area or on the outside terrace. Delicious coffees, teas and children’s picnic boxes are also available.

The Round Table Cafe (open Easter to Summer only)

During the height of the school holidays, we open an additional cafe in Runaway Ranch. With beautiful views over the Valley, it’s the ideal spot to take a break and watch the children play.

Picnic Areas

You’re welcome to bring your own picnic and eat in either of our outdoor covered seating areas of Picnic Beach or Picnic Ranch.  Picnics cannot be consumed in the main Cafe Italia area, but there is inside seating by the Canon Saloon where picnics are welcome.
