Murumburrah and Harden are like Albury and Wodonga, and Tweed Heads and Coolangatta. The differences are, they are in the same state and are only separated by a bridge. The dual township is buried in the southern extremes of the Southern Highlands where farming land was made famous by the quality Merino wool it produced. I enter through the Murumburrah side and run straight into the Whichcraft and Coffee Cottage that has a huge sign out front beckoning passers-by to come in for a Devonshire Tea. Opened in 1971 and acting as a cafe, craft store and Tourist Information centre, Whichcraft and Coffee Cottage offers the traveller more than just local information and woollen beanies. The cafe is old school, offering simple home cooked fare from decades past. The Devonshire Tea comes with two scones and a choice of apricot or strawberry jam. The scones are bite size; so don’t be shy in ordering the DT if you are hungry, but scones can be ordered singularly as well. The jam is better than the regular store-bought, but I’m not sure whether my apricot jam is homemade, even though jam is sold on the premises. There’s plenty of fresh and thickly whipped chilled cream, which tops off my scone nicely. Stock up on craft items such as tea cosies, beanies, baby’s booties and crocheted blankets.
Tea: A few varieties of Twining tea bags
Overall: Just like Nanna’s kitchen.
