The Chalet Healy Café will be closed until further notice.
Chalet Healy is part of the rich heritage of the Araluen Botanic park grounds. This log cabin was built by the original pioneers in realising the visions of the original owner of Araluen JJ Boss Simons. Boss established the Young Australia League (Y.A.L) who volunteered time as they set about to develop Chalet style buildings across the grounds for onsite accommodation using the materials on hand. Chalet Healy is made from enormous Jarrah logs and heavy stone from the Stinton Creek.
The Chalet Healy Café named in honour of TV (Tim) Healy of Vauclause NSW, who’s generosity to the YAL made the completion of this building possible. Inside the Chalet Healy is a brass plaque recognising his efforts.
When in full operation Chalet Healy Café is a wonderful place to enjoy cafe style dining experience.
In Summer the purple flowering Wisteria covers the balcony, in the cooler months the warm log fire offers an authentic log cabin experience.
