Our Story

David and Victoria and our friendly staff welcome you to their modern bistro serving food, wine, and coffee at your table.

The restaurant is highly visible, situated on the national highway in the Walpole Nornalup National Park and just moments from the giant tingle trees and the Tree Top Walk. The surrounding waterways, river and ocean inlets are unique and beautiful.

Guests can enjoy relaxed, comfortable seating in the elegantly restored historic building or on the outside cottage garden terrace.

We are highly praised for our excellent food and fully licensed bar and guests can enjoy a range of local and regional wines, spirits and cocktails, chilled artisan ales, or coffee anytime.

Our highly experienced Sri Lankan chefs plate up delicious Mediterranean and south Asian cuisine from locally sourced and fresh top quality seafood, meat & vegetables.

We offer destination dining with a relaxed ambience for visitors and travellers to this major tourism area.  As our guests say… Over the Hill & Around the Bend…” The Nornabar is well worth a visit!”

Owners & Chefs

David and Victoria Higgins - Deepal and Siran.

David and Victoria opened for business in the early 2000s with the dream to offer guests a space to come and enjoy a variety of cuisines while soaking in the natural beauty the local area has to offer. The Nornabar arose out of what was once the hugely popular Nornalup Teahouse Restaurant, with extensive renovations, a special licence, a fresh and welcoming ambiance and delicious cuisine prepared by our dedicated kitchen team… Sri Lankan chefs Deepal & Siran.
