blue poles

A few weekends ago my friend Diana and i decided to make a trip to the country with the kids for something different. We made our way through wauchope and out to Byabarra. We then settled in to Blue Poles cafe & art gallery for a late lunch.
The outlook at this place is just amazing, and you feel instantly at home and joyful in the company of the properties hosts. They are especially good with children! Almost "Mrs Doubtfire-ish" I got lost in tranquility as my eyes grazed the lush valleys dotted with colourful autumn foliage, water springs and fruit trees. This was my idea of heaven!...that was until my kids started fighting over who was colouring in outside the lines...haha!

The food was good. I would have liked to have said great, but unfortunately it was talked up just alittle too much by our exuberant hosts. The high point food wise, was my coffee brulee - super strong with a wonderfully smooth texture. This was not something i would have picked usually, not being the big coffee flavor advocate. But it just goes to show that sometimes trying something out of your usual perception pays off big time!

Blue poles is also home to a quaint studio B&B. Featuring a large bath beside bay windows overlooking the peaceful bushland setting....just dont go in bird watching season!..:)

the cafe, art gallery and B&B which are all housed on the property are all lovely.  Defiantely worth the drive for something alittle off the beat and track.
