The Roundhouse Café
The Roundhouse building was the original cookhouse for the Araluen pioneers in the early 1930’s. Built from heavy stone out of the onsite brook, named ‘Stinton Creek’ which runs north south across the entire Araluen Botanic Park gardens.
The Roundhouse café is open 7 days a week 10am to 2pm daily. Serving tea & coffee, cold drinks, and a variety of snacks – the cafe is perfect for those looking for light refreshments to grab-and-go. Plus, for those with dietary requirements the menu also includes gluten-free and dairy-free options.

With plenty of open grass, picnics are the perfect way to spend the afternoon at Araluen. Bring your favourite picnic supplies, and stretch out and enjoy a summer’s day. Take a walk through the park and visit some of our landmarks, such as the Old Swimming Pool.
Whilst we have limited mobile reception at Araluen Botanic Park, free public Wi-Fi is available throughout the Park. We are a smoke-free venue.
What can't I take into the park?
- Cigarettes and alcohol – we have a plethora of natural wildlife that calls Araluen their home. These items can cause damage to our flora and fauna, and negatively impact the environment.
- Rollerblades, bicycles, scooters, and skateboards – Araluen is a peaceful and relaxing park, and we want to ensure the safety of each of our guests. Please do not bring these items into the park.
- Drones, kites, and fireworks – these items have the potential to be dangerous to our guests, and the birds and other wildlife that live in our park.
- Pets – while we love our furry friends, they can negatively affect our natural wildlife species.
- Wedding parties, wedding photos, ceremonies, or clothing resembling wedding attire – at Araluen, we have a dedicated Wedding season where you are more than welcome to book a wedding ceremony, reception, or photography session. Please ensure that wedding-related activities are officially booked and are during the right time of year.
How big is the Park?
How do I get there?
