Whether you hail from the northside or are day-tripping to nearby suburbs, the inner north pocket of Windsor, Wooloowin and Lutwyche are well worth a visit. This trio of suburbs is steadily growing a reputation for great coffee, chilled parks, and stellar shops.
Cat Cuddle Café in Lutwyche is Australia’s only Cat Café run by a rescue group and is the pur-fect environment for cat lovers to enjoy and interact with rescue cats, as well as enjoy a coffee and a sumptuous range of vegan and vegetarian, savoury and sweet foods. You will also find an op shop - a shopper’s delight of pre-loved and retro fashion and accessories, homewares, books, and toys. With an eclectic mix and new stock daily, no two visits are the same.
If you’re a coffee lover and need your morning heart starter to be served with some extra TLC to break you into a new day, look no further than Coddle and Co. This mother-daughter duo café has made its home on Kedron Park Road, Wooloowin and has become an intrinsic part of the neighbourhood and offers great coffee, adorable gifts and beautiful plants.
Once you have your caffeine fix, why not do a spot of shopping. Windsor’s Colwill Place is a thriving little cluster of boutique shops and nurseries with stunning plants, cafes and more. If you are a lover of sand, sea and coastal living Nikkou Store has everything to make your heart content with carefully curated womenswear, children's clothing, accessories and lifestyle pieces.
Surrounded by a multitude of well-established trees, plenty of green open spaces and a cracking playground, Kalinga Park is guaranteed to entertain the children for hours. Treehouse-style timber forts are a climber's delight with nets, poles, bars, ladders, steps and walls to scale. Kids with extra energy can kick a ball on large, grassed areas, cycle on the dedicated learn to ride tracks, shoot some hoops, play tennis (BYO racquet and balls), or use the outdoor gym equipment. The playground is suitable for children of all ages, with a slide and swings for the younger children.
