Whether you’re looking for a place to celebrate a baby shower, bridal shower, mother’s day, birthday or just fancy treating yourself, High Tea is always a popular choice. Many Cairns hotels offer the High Tea experience; however, one of the cutest new arrivals on the block is the High Tea Trolley.

Welcome to High Tea Trolley sign

Located at Freshwater Railway Station in Cairns, at the High Tea Trolley you can enjoy premium desserts, sandwiches and delicious tea and coffee surrounded by the quaint (and Instagrammable!) out-of-work railway carriages.

Entrance to the High Tea Trolley

Step through the rail carriage before finding your seat. Unlike other high tea seatings, the High Tea Trolley is different as your treats are presented not in the traditional three-tier cake stand, but rather brought around to your table via trolleys.
