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.

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

This is a busy place! Hard to get a booking at short notice on the weekend. Very hipster kinda vibes. The signs at the front desk contradicted each other so we weren’t sure if we should wait to be seated or go to the register, but the answer is, wait at the door. Order at the counter. Felt like a long wait with food. Food was amazing. Kids play area outside and then in the bush there’s an old play area that would be fantastic if it was fixed up a bit. Rowena Bradshaw

Great Menu...indo breakfast was yummy. Lovely country drive to the restaurant..set into the bush. Restaurant is a bit sad.. needs a make over a bit too rustic..which doesn't reflect the great food. Patricia Cuthbert

Nice food, great place, really busy. Need booking but even with that we waited nearly 45 minutes for food with two little kids. Play area and outdoor trail etc so not the worst place to wait! Raspberry Quirky
