Situated in the Dandenong Ranges, The Cuckoo Restaurant is today one of the world's most renowned smorgasbord restaurants receiving visitors from all over the globe. It is hard to believe that this buzzing 450 seat family restaurant started out as a modest refreshment stop for travellers. Called the Quamby and built in 1914, the cafe operated for 44 years remembered fondly for its strawberries and cream sold at 6d. a dish.
In 1958 the Quamby was sold to Willi and Karin Koeppen. Shortly after they moved in, Karin heard the sound of a cuckoo calling in the darkness. She woke her husband and said 'We will call the cafe The Cuckoo'
