The Best High Tea Experiences in Australia

Who doesn't love teeny tiny treats, finger sandwiches and Champagne? High Tea or Afternoon Tea is a chance to reconnect over tea and scones and soak up some fine surroundings, whether it's a luxury hotel, vineyard estate or hinterland café.

Here's our most loved and instagrammable High Tea experiences from around Australia.
