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.

The indo breakfast was amazing! The Bush breakfast was pretty good too, the service was a bit slow and they should have had someone at the front door seating people as people had to line up at the till to get seated, its reservations only and they're pretty strict about the time limits. All in all, the food is great they just need better service. And they have free wifi, you just need to ask for the password Amanda B

Food tasty and well presented. Cheerful helpful staff. They have extended the main area and it's noisy. A common occurrence in restaurants! If you have a back problem better take a cushion! Neil and Barbara Reid

Love this place. Nestled away in the trees of Dunsborough you will find the most amazing little cafe! The food is spectacular both breakfast and lunch, everything made with the freshest ingredients. The indo breakfast is a personal favorite. This time we had the katsu prawns and gnocchi wish was also amazing. Christopher Kehoe

First time visit here and was wonderfully surprised. Lots of different areas to sit including lovely outdoor bush surroundings. Friendly staff and prompt service. Breakfast we had was tasty with gluten options, plus lactose free milk for amazing coffee. Definitely a good place to try. Dexcellent Productions
