Stopped at Tea Garden on the way to Port Macquarie. Found boatshed on the shore walk and decided to have lunch. Lovely views of the lake, great service and most of all excellent food. May stop here on the way back 😊

HI - no the Boatshed isn't air conditioned, however it is open to the air with a roof covering so very cool and comfortable.
