Situated only ten minutes from Dunsborough, you feel a world away from the hustle and bustle in this relaxed native setting.

Sit back, relax and enjoy a lazy breakfast or lunch while enjoying a drop from Goanna's local wine list, or simply stop by for a locally roasted coffee and freshly, homemade sweet treat. Inside you can explore the gallery showcasing local artisans including woodworkers, photographers, ceramic artists and jewellers. Or head into the outdoors and enjoy the natural playground or stroll through the sculpture walk amongst seasonal wildflowers and native surrounds.

Nestled in native Australian bushland. Goanna is quirky, unpretentious and relaxed. Goannas ever-changing seasonal menu is designed to showcase the very best and freshest ingredients on offer in the region. 

For owner & Head Chef Duncan Timmons, creating fresh, interesting and honest dishes in a kitchen he could call his own had long been a dream. This dream was realised when Duncan and wife Ali took the plunge to head down under from their native Scottish shores and swap city streets for home and café set in stunningly beautiful Australian native bush, close to world-class vineyards and golden sandy beaches. Duncan’s passion for simple, fresh and understated food is expressed through his creative seasonal menu. He works closely alongside a long list of local producers and suppliers to ensure that every menu item showcases the freshest, best quality and locally sourced ingredients. 

Along with supporting local growers and producers in the cafe, Goanna Gallery proudly supports local artisans with a selection of handpicked, homegrown, art and design from throughout the region and Australia wide. The Gallery carries an evolving range of local artwork, jewellery, scarves, Corrynne’s natural beauty products and homewares with a focus on handcrafted and quality pieces. Discover new artists through exhibitions in the café space. 

Little ones can enjoy their own adventure in the children's playground with adjacent cafe seating. Four-legged friends (dogs) are welcomed in outdoor areas so long as they are on a lead.

Surprisingly amazing dinning experience given the family friendliness and wild backdrop but wow! Compliments to the chef! The pan-fried potato & ricotta gnocchi was delicious and presented beautifully. The fried chicken sandwich packed a bit of flavour and half wagin duck, red coconut curry didn't disappoint either. Too many dishes to try, so little time left on this road trip. We'll be back again for sure. Ben Howkimkam
Very busy and though we booked and arrived on time unfortunately the people at the table we reserved outstayed their time and then other customers came in and took our table against the flow. Not the staff's fault just other customers not following directions. Meal was excellent when it finally arrived at another table we claimed as ours which was much nicer outdoors so it worked out well in the finish, I ordered the Spanish Breakfast but they missed out on the roast tomato which was on the menu. But very popular and busy with great friendly staff service and food. Highly recommended but book well in advance like a day or 2 prior. 👍 John
Had such a wonderful lunch here yesterday that we had to return again today for breakfast! The food is just amazing! The Gnocchi was divine, freshly made with local produce. Breakfast today did not dissapoint, we had the beef brisket and the Indonesian breakfast. Best breakfast ever! We will keep on returning as this place is a favourite! Carole Balchand
