Home' The Canberra Times : See Canberra Autumn Contents Apart from the large collection of tea
available, what really sets the teahouse
apart is the live jazz that sends toe-tapping
tunes through the village every Sunday
Owner of Adore Tea, Marc
Nieuwenhuys enjoys treating customers to
a live music experience with the all-local
"It's just great for people to enjoy
fantastic live music outdoors, instead of
being in a pub," he explained.
The teahouse has become a popular
hangout for Canberrans and visitors to
the region, with many claiming it to be a
'superb little secret spot'.
Mr Nieuwenhuys said that it is not
unusual to have customers spending an
entire afternoon tapping and bopping away
to the live tunes.
"We are a unique venue, the way we do
things here are a little different, we want
people to sit down we encourage people to
enjoy a long relaxing afternoon."
Just a few of the taste sensations on
offer include apricot and peach tea (sweet
apricots and delicate peaches mixed into
china and Ceylon teas, sprinkled with
yellow blossoms) and jaffa tea (subtle
chocolate and orange flavours with a
delightful aftertaste). While enjoying the
soothing atmosphere, why not tempt your
tastebuds with an extravagant fudge tasting
Additional attractions include the
Aboriginal Dreamings Gallery, which
presents one of the finest and affordable
selections of authentic Aboriginal and
artifacts in Australia. The gallery's
collection features more than 1500 original
artworks representing many of the most
respected Aboriginal artists.
The mini village of Cockington Green
is an ever popular attraction, as is the
National Dinosaur Museum, which houses
23 complete skeletons, and more than 300
displays of individual fossils.
If you are on the hunt for that
something special for a special someone,
then make sure you check out the range
of cute and colourful gift stores including
Flight of Fancy and Emperor of Siam,
as well as some delightful lolly shops to
sweeten your visit.
The sleepy Gold Creek Village
