Stopped off for our lunch on the way to the Gold Coast and enjoyed the best BLT on a Turkish roll and a thirst quenching tea. Also dog friendly and lovely local staff with big smiles. A must spot to stop right off the Pacific Highway at Maclean! Beats those horrible fast food joints hands down👍

We always try to stop here when we drive up to Queensland from NSW. It's a family style restaurant with a large deck hanging over the river. Always fun to watch the bream, water dragons, ducks and assorted water birds below the deck. Food is well priced and enjoyable.

A combination of tourist information centre, arts and crafts, Australian souvenirs and a cafe overlooking the River.

We were in need of a coffee on a trip up th Northern NSW so stopped off at the Ferry Park Cafe. I was not impressed when the man taking my order asked me " Now what would WE like to order?" - when there was only me making an order as my husband was doing something else. The coffee... More

Hi Lizzy C, Thank you so much for taking the time to review our cafe. It sounds as though you were served by Dan, one of our longest serving and most popular, well loved staff members. He is outgoing and quirky at times and it seems you may have misread his approach so we do apologise. We are sorry you... More

Ferry Park is conveniently situated on the edge of the Pacific Hwy at the Maclean turnoff! We had a BLT hamburger & cake! It was relaxing sitting on the veranda overlooking the water! There is information available on the area as well as gifts! A pleasant stop!

Very unreliable - they do not keep to their advertised opening hours and close 'willy-nilly' - to me this demonstrates a contempt for their customer base. I would advise avoiding planning to stop here as you can never be sure they will be open. Another example of an establishment that has lots to offer (the food and coffee is generally... More
