On the south west corner of the Village Square will be the cool, family-friendly Ecovillage café. Facing north onto the Square and east to the nature playground, it is perfectly oriented to become your new favourite hangout.

Grab a morning coffee and a healthy breaky treat on your way to work; pull up a chair and linger while watching your kids explore the nature playground; meet friends for a tasty, local lunch; relax on the weekend after a yoga class with a cuppa and the newspaper. Serving delicious, locally-sourced, organic fare, this café is sure to become a local favourite well beyond the residents of the Ecovillage.

The nature playground will be a beautifully landscaped space where children of all ages can explore, play and challenge themselves creatively and physically in a safe and fun environment. Centred around a seasonal creek line that forms part of the stormwater catchment, we envisage a sensory garden with edible and native plants, a sand pit, fort, swings, build-your-own cubbies and plenty of other features to keep kids entertained and busy.
