Sit out on the back veranda and enjoy a crispy kale omelette with toasted hazelnuts or toasted sourdough with locally-sourced jams. Grab a cacao milkshake to go: the café's house-made syrups are one-of-a-kind and not to be missed.”

Bridge
“Hampden Bridge is not only a remarkable example of Victoria engineering, but is also a unique demonstration to create an architecturally romanticised structure in a beautiful remote rural location. The combination of wooden suspension bridge and English Medieval towers representing a castle portcullis have contributed to giving the community that live in Kangaroo Valley and all those that cross the Kangaroo River at this point a dramatic sense of place unlike another in Australia.”
