Mia Mia Gallery and Cafe (Templestowe)




Built in 1936 on what was part of a large dairy farm, Mia Mia Gallery (Westerfolds Manor) is a large English style building. The Manor now contains a small cafe and aboriginal art gallery.

The Mia Mia Aboriginal Art Gallery offers a variety of genuine, high-quality indigenous Australian art, crafts, and other products to visitors, providing a specialised exhibition space to establish and upcoming Aboriginal artists and craftspeople.

We invite you to visit Mia Mia Gallery and experience a genuine insight into our planet's most ancient living culture, a proud indigenous culture of both yesterday and today.

Every Saturday, Mia Mia Aboriginal Art Gallery has an afternoon of entertainment with didgeridoo demonstrations, boomerang throwing and more. From 3-5pm you will see musician Gnarnayarrahe Waitairie play the didgeridoo and tell a few dreamtime stories as well as Mia Mia founder and artist Colin McKinnon-Dodd showcase his skills at the art of boomerang throwing.

The Mia Mia Cafe offers great coffee and a range of scones, served with indigenous jams and jellies. Parched and looking for an ice-cold drink? We've got that too!

Scones available include Date, Fruit, Spinach & Feta and Blueberry & White Chocolate. Have them served warm with butter, freshly whipped cream and your choice of several different indigenous jams with flavours including Rasberry & Wild Rosella, Quandong Peach, Fruits of the Outback and Sunset Lime Marmalade.

We offer both indoor and outdoor seating. You can either enjoy our hand-painted indoor mural by the famous Aboriginal artist Ray Thomas whose works are also featured on our site or 360 degree panoramic views of Westerfolds Park, Templestowe and the gorgeous Melbourne skyline.

We even offer a nice cool drink for your canine companion, and a free biscuit for him or her to enjoy.

Patrons are encouraged to ask questions about Aboriginal culture and make their dining experience an enriching cultural one.

Located at The Manor, Westerfolds Park, Fitzsimons Lane, Templestowe.
