Café Burrinja


The Café at Burrinja is taking a break and will be closed from Tuesday March 8 for a number of weeks until early May.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause our patrons.
However, never fear, we have a great little ‘pop-up’ coffee, tea and cake service in our foyer area with comfy couches so that a caffeine fix and a place to relax are still here for you when you drop in to visit our exhibitions and studio artists, or to book some tickets.

So what is happening in the Café next?

A new chapter is beginning at Burrinja...

A dedicated team of passionate locals have been busily working behind the scenes to transform the cafe space, and we can guarantee that you won't be disappointed.

With a focus on delivering quality food, drink and entertainment, the new owners aim to enrich and augment the current Burrinja experience. They bring fresh and enthusiastic energy to the table, and hope to create a quintessential Hills venue.

Working closely with the in-house Burrinja team and artists, they look forward to getting to know you personally, and to welcoming you into the revived space.

Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks!
