ABOUT US

Enjoy great food and good times at Postmasters Cottage Café, one of Arrowtown’s most picturesque venues.
The historic cottage, now lovingly restored as a café, was once home to the town’s postmasters and has been a main street feature since the 1860s. Its old-world charm, complete with horse-hitching post, picket fence, beautiful gardens and hanging wisteria, has made it one of Arrowtown’s most photographed buildings.
With prime views of the historic main street and iconic hillsides, a cosy interior inspired by early settler days, and sunny outdoor verandahs and courtyard perfect for al fresco dining, Postmasters is a popular spot for couples, families and groups to relax and catch up over a drink or a meal.
