Our Catering

All catering needs to be arranged in advance. Our Visitor Centre Shop has a great coffee machine, tea, cold drinks and snacks available daily.


Tasty Leaf Catering, operated by The Friends of Eastwoodhill, offers a high quality catering service within the tranquility of the arboretum or at a venue to suit you.

Enjoy a boxed picnic to take to your favourite spot in the park or enjoy a scrumptious light lunch or evening meal in the relaxing surroundings of the Douglas Cook Centre courtyard.

All proceeds go towards the ongoing care of the arboretum.

Minimum 15 people per booking or a minimum charge of $150 (minimum charges do not apply to morning or afternoon teas).

Catering requirements must be advised at least five working days prior to the day. Bookings need to be made between 9am and 5pm Monday - Friday.



The Tasty Leaf Cafe only operates at certain times of the year and will be advertised.

If you plan to visit with a group of 10 or more, please advise us at least one working day prior to your visit. Bookings need to be made between 9am and 5pm Monday - Friday.
