Stephenstown Pond Nature Park and Coffee Shop

Stephenstown Pond is a unique nature park with lakeside walkways, woodlands, and a wide array of wildlife. The facility provides an ideal family day out where you can enjoy a picnic, feed the ducks and other wildlife. The children can participate in a nature quiz (available at a cost of only 50c at The Dairy Maid Coffee Shop – on site) while they learn  about flora, fauna and wildlife from the educational interpretative boards as they walk round the nature park. If you are fond of fishing, then you will enjoy an afternoon of Carp (course) fishing. Daily permits on sale at The Dairy Maid Coffee  Shop.

After a leisurely stroll round the award winning (winner of National Tidy Towns Wildlife Award) Stephenstown Pond Nature Park you can enjoy morning coffee and home baked scones, served with jam and cream, or a bowl of freshly made soup and home made brown bread or afternoon tea and dessert (all home baking on site). Our staff are very friendly and enjoy chatting with our customers.
