Staying at Rawnsley Park and not sure what’s for dinner? Our on-site restaurant located in the Woolshed (hence the name) is open every day for dine in and takeaway. An easy walk from most of our accommodation, enjoy the luxuries of a fine-dining restaurant in the bush. We recommend booking in advance.

The Woolshed Restaurant is open for takeaway meals daily for pick-up between 4.30pm and 5.45pm with orders due by 5pm. Dine-in is also available 7 days with pre-booking essential. Due to current COVID-19 restrictions and being extremely busy, we are unable to accept walk-ins.


Flinders Food Co in Hawker

With a fresh, seasonal menu and barista coffee, you won’t want to drive through Hawker without stopping at Flinders Food Co. It’s located opposite the town’s public toilets and open Tuesday to Sunday (and long weekends) from 7:30am to 3:00pm (kitchen closes at 2pm), it’s too convenient to pass up. The menu includes an all-day breakfast and lunch, cold drinks, beers and ciders.


The Blinman Hotel

“Ice cold beer and a hearty outback feed, life's simple pleasures” at the Blinman Hotel. If you’re out for a drive, we highly recommend visiting the historic township of Blinman, touring the mines and enjoying lunch at the “pub in the scrub”. All of your classic pub favourites are on the menu, plus Pizza nights on Fridays. The Blinman Hotel is an hours’ drive north of Rawnsley Park Station and is open 7 days serving lunch from 12pm to 2pm and dinner from 6pm to 8pm.

There are daily specials on the menu, with lunch from Friday to Monday and dinner daily from 6pm served in the recently renovated dining room (complete with a wood fire) or outside, it’s a great spot for a classic pub meal and cold drink.
