Where to Eat in Glenorchy
People plan their holidays to get away from the stresses of every-day life, to try something new or do what makes them happy for a week or two. And usually this includes the one thing that delights absolutely everyone – good food.
The beauty of dining in Glenorchy is you get to have your cake and eat it too – literally. You can immerse yourself in natural beauty, see some incredible views, and nourish yourself with fresh, inviting food all at the same time.

Mrs Woolly’s (https://www.theheadwaters.co.nz/general-store/) is only a few steps away from Camp GY and offers chef-cooked takeaway food that is perfect for any on-the-go picnic, hike or evening meal. They also serve great coffee, scrumptious gelato a.k.a The Ful Monty and a variety of fresh local produce, bread and Mrs Woollys delicious pies and bacon butties.
Camp GY has many options for great grub. Want to relax around the kitchen table with friends or family?
