Waratah is a very small town with limited facilities. The Bischoff Hotel Pub does great inexpensive dinners, The Mushroom Cafe has awesome coffee and lunches and The Roadhouse sells fuel, take-away food and a good selection of basic grocery items usually open from 7am - 6pm.
The closest large supermarket / shopping centre is located in Burnie - 45 minute drive.
Waratah is a picturesque town midway between Burnie and Cradle Mountain. The town features a number of historical buildings including Philospher Smith's Hut and The Bischoff Hotel and is well worth exploring. With the main street only 300m away it is an easy walk past the lake.
The Roadhouse is prominent on Smith Street as you drive in or out of town. It is open 7am - 6pm 7 days per week and can supply all your basic needs, including take away food and petrol.
Further along this road you will find the Waratah Museum, The Athaneum, the Post Office, the Stamper Mill and also the top of the waterfall. If you continue along past the old post office you will find the perfect location to view the waterfall across from the Bischoff Hotel.
While you are there stop in at The Bischoff Hotel for a drink or stay for dinner - they do a Monster Chicken Schnitzel that my son LOVES
Just up from the hotel is The Mushroom Cafe - a great place to grab lunch and a coffee.
Wander around the lake - it's a nice easy stroll and keep an eye out for Platypus - they do exist and are best spotted at either Dusk or Dawn.
Located 50 minutes from Burnie and 45 minutes from Cradle Mountain, a car is essential.
Use extreme care driving especially Dusk til Dawn as this is when the wildlife are most active. The road leading into town in particular is heavily populated with critters at night - so for your sake and theirs Please Slow Down.
During the colder months it is recommended you drive a 4wd or at least an SUV due to the likelihood of snow which can get quite high at times.
