There are not many places on earth where you can stand on a balcony, spotting wild platypus whilst drinking a barista served coffee or cooking a on BBQ. Barrington Hideaway’s proximity to Gloucester gives guests easy access to a number a great cafes, a butcher and a some yummy country baking.

After a quick trip “into town” your coffee will still be warm and can be enjoyed, amongst the trees, on the deck.

The local IGA has a great bottle-shop that stocks regional craft beer and the Avon Valley Meats has a some delicious smoked goods and other locally sourced produce.


There are a number of cafes along the main street, take your pick! Returning visitors will note some new cafes in town, so check out The Common and Three Blind Mice for your caffeine hit or breakfast.


In addition to the classic country baker, Hebbey’s Bakery, which sells yummy pies alongside a fully range of classic treats, you can order online from Batter & Dough who does amazing small batch artisan breads and sweet treats.


Gloucester is more than just a “two hotel town”! Whilst you can get great pub food at either the Roundabout Inn (they have a great range of regional craft beer on tap) or the Avon Valley Inn Hotel, there are also other great options including Roadies Cafe who often does woodfired pizza.

Nothing say rural Australia like a Chinese restaurant in bowling club and we are lucky to have a great one in Gloucester. Jack-High Restaurant is at the Gloucester bowling club which is on the left as you leaving Gloucester towards Barrington. Our favourite is the satay king prawns!
