We are very proud to feature locally grown vegetables, fruits, seafood, dairy and organic and biodynamic meats. At the Café at the Arboretum you can choose a little or a lot – just a snack or a ready-to-eat lunch to enjoy in the Village Centre or why not take it with you, and enjoy a picnic in the beautiful surrounds of the Arboretum. Either way you are sure to enjoy some of the best views Canberra has to offer.
