Cormorant Bay, Wivenhoe Dam – QLD

In search of a relaxing Sunday afternoon, we found ourselves on the verandah of the Brisbane Valley’s, Cormorant Bay Cafe.

The recently revived Cormorant Bay Cafe is buzzing once again after a change in the weather brought the Wivenhoe Dam back to almost 100% capacity after many years of drought.

As Brisbane’s main water supply, Wivenhoe Dam is a sight for sore eyes as it delights in its newfound glory. Pelicans can be found sailing peacefully while falcons hover above watching their prey below. Like the water, the wildlife have returned.

A favourite with Sunday drivers as they explore the Brisbane Valley, the Cormorant Bay Cafe sits perched on the ebb of the Wivenhoe Dam. The view is spectacular. If nothing else, it is relaxing.

The menu features a nice selection of dishes with something for everyone. The gorgeous view awaits from your table on the verandah. Inside dining has a pleasant atmosphere with minimal and tasteful design.

The large Cormorant Bay parkland surrounding the cafe often accommodates large groups enjoying an afternoon BBQ. Kids can be found kicking footballs while the rest of the family simply soak up nature.

While the cafe caters to small groups of people looking for a quiet afternoon treat, a kiosk provides a more informal place for a quick coffee break – a favourite with the endless trail of bikers cruising the Brisbane Valley Highway.

A drive through the Brisbane Valley is a perfect way to spend any Sunday afternoon. Fernvale’s infamous markets feature bargains from top to tail and Esk still provides the charm of a country town while remaining close to the city.

A stop at the Cormorant Bay Cafe makes any Brisbane Valley Sunday drive complete.
