It’s a glorious summer’s day and there’s no better place to be then on one of Sydney’s beaches or waterways. Whether you arrive by private boat or road, The Cottage Point Kiosk and General store is popular with yachties and Sydneysiders looking for tranquility. Lying deep in the heart of the Ku-Ring- Gai Chase National Park, the Kiosk is perched on the edge of Cowan Creek that runs off the Hawkesbury River and is the perfect place for a chilled lunch or snack. A friend told me about the Devonshire Teas, so I was excited to try them and even more excited when I arrive to see Devonshire Tea signs plastered all over the Kiosk. I miss out on the date scones but the plain scones look homemade and crusty. However, within a few minutes of cooling down, the scones are little more than rock cakes and inedible, the jam is average and the cream too light for me, which is a shame considering the million dollar views.
Tea: A few varieties of tea bags served in a small pot.
Overall: A magical Sydney escape.
