It serves as a Visitor Information Center, a place to buy a variety of gifts for family and friends, beautiful paintings by talented local artists, local handicrafts, a place for staff meetings and of course snacks, coffee, dessert, and ice-cream for a hot summer day.
In addition to the above, there are a variety of plants for sale outside the shop. Call 03 5021 0361 for more details.
