Best Mother’s Day High Tea in Australia

    High tea and Mother’s Day go together like, well, scones and Devonshire cream frankly. Where will you take the special lady in your life this year? We have a number of superlative options for you, from Sydney to Perth.

    Lilianfels Blue Mountains Resort & Spa
    Lilianfels Avenue, Katoomba

    High tea in a UNESCO World Heritage Site, let alone a plush Euro-style country estate, is never bad.

    The Tea Room QVB, Sydney
    Level 3, North End, QVB, 455 George Street

    The Tea Room in Sydney’s grand Romanesque Revival icon, the venerable QVB, is the perfect place to spoil mother silly.

    The Tea Room Gunners’ Barracks, Sydney
    End Of Suakin Drive, Georges Heights, Mosman

    On the other hand, you can take mother on a nice drive on the Lower North Shore of Sydney and have tea at the other Tea Room, in Georges Heights.

    Sir Stamford at Circular Quay Sydney Hotel
    93 Macquarie Street

    A 2010 HotelClub Awards finalist in the Outstanding Luxury and Outstanding Service categories, Sir Stamford at Circular Quay delivers the high tea goods.

    Garden Court Restaurant at Sofitel Sydney Wentworth
    61-101 Phillip Street

    One of the premier hotels in Sydney features a full afternoon tea service with a range of Ronnefeldt tea, plus sweet and savoury nibbles.

    The Hotel Windsor, Melbourne
    111 Spring Street

    Afternoon tea at The Hotel Windsor has been a venerable ritual since 1883. Mum will appreciate that, between bites of smoked salmon with creamy avocado and dill ribbon sandwiches, of course.

    C Restaurant in the Sky, Perth
    Level 33, 44 St Georges Terrace

    Another superb destination, another restaurant in the sky. Perth’s C Restaurant in the Sky is a Mother’s Day staple.
