This is a lovely riverside stop for coffee or lunch. The verandah overlooks the beautiful Clarence River and is a peaceful place to sit after negotiating endless roadworks. It has been taken over by Olivers now. Attached gift shop gallery has one very cranky lady who shouted across the whole premises because i dared photograph a display of crystals commenly... More

This cafe is in an excellent position with lovely views and plenty of room. Staff were pleasant but definitely need a new cook. Butter Chicken was like a tinned slop with very little chicken or flavour and other food we had was poor. Eould not eat thete again. Very disappointed

Hi, Ferry Park changed hands in 31/3/2017 it is now owned by Olivers Real Food . For some reason trip advisor won't let me close our Ferry Park page . I'm sorry you were disappointed with your meal , I've eaten there on a couple of occasions and found the food to be tasty and healthy as well More

A lot of teething issues with slow processing through the checkout. I ordered two double shot mugs ( eat in) flat white one lactose free - only to be told it had to be soy.... Norco have a great full cream lactose free, why do we have to settle for soy ... anyway. About 10 minutes later they bring two... More

We pushed on for another 40 minutes from woodburn to have lunch on an 8.5 hour journey, manoeuvred the caravan into position only to find a sign saying they were closed definitely as they are putting an olivers in there. I had a quick scout around on the internet before we arrived and there was no indication that they were... More

Really enjoyed this stopover. Coffee was excellent, and there was a large choice of cakes and muffins, etc. It was 'brunch', so I had 'egg and bacon' sandwich, big enough to share with my husband! Good value.

I generally prefer to try places off the highway. The Ferry Park is very conveniently positioned and I would suggest better than most on the highway itself. The menu was a bit limited. Having said that the toasted sandwich was substantial and very enjoyable. Can't say the same for the coffee......if you want convenience and to get back on the... More
