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, brunch or lunch while enjoying a drop from Goanna's local wine list. Or simply stop by for a locally roasted coffee and homemade sweet treat. With options to be seated indoors or out, you are welcome to wander into the bush out the back and enjoy the natural playground, or stroll through the sculpture walk amongst seasonal wildflowers and native surrounds.
Nestled in native bushland, Goanna is quirky, unpretentious and relaxed. The ever-changing seasonal menu is designed to showcase the very best and freshest ingredients on offer in the region. 

Owner and head chef, Duncan Timmons, is passionate about creating simple, interesting and honest dishes, which are reflected in the seasonal menus. 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.

Everyone is welcome at Goanna, and together, Duncan and his wife and co-owner Ali, love to nourish their guests on their way to explore the beautiful offerings of the south west on their doorstep. 

Little ones can enjoy their own adventure in the children's playground with adjacent cafe seating, and well behaved doggos on lead are also welcome in our outdoor areas.

Goanna has a strong band of local customers, so bookings are always recommended to avoid disappointment.

Lunch with husband and 101year old mother - absolutely delicious and delightful. Fresh, tasty food- prawn dish, porchetta dish and lamb chop dish. Service from all staff was friendly, attentive and helpful. We have discovered a new gem in the bush .

I wish there were more cafes like this one in Perth. The coffee was ready really quickly and the food items were really fresh! We also loved how big each portion was. The mushrooms and the pesto were amazing. Both were really fresh and delicious. 10/10 for me. Last but not least, their customer service is amazing. Really friendly staff members. We are definitely coming back.

Super friendly staff members! Booking is essential as they are often busy. Plenty of options to choose from, brekky and lunch menu, a variety vegetarian options too. Food is flavoursome and dishes are well presented. A delightful brekky experience!

This is our fifth visit to Goanna Bush Cafe. We love the building, the relaxed atmosphere and the bush land surroundings. Every visit has been a memorable experience, we would love to compliment the team. The chefs really know how to cook! Our fam is fussy and each of the four meals were cooked to perfection. Every piece of the plate was to perfection. We had the gnocchi, the beef cap with the miso eggplant and cauliflower, the lamb with lentils and veges. My Mum said she could not have cooked it better herself! We finished off with the brownie and baked cheesecake. Superb! Also the wine list was fab and so many great choices and different price points. There is a little gift shop with local artist items. Also you can take away a meal if you still have room! Thanks Team Goanna we will be back.
