The Paper Mill Food: Dining Precincts in Liverpool, Sydney

Take your pick of delicious eating establishments in the Paper Mill Food precinct, located on the banks of the Georges River in South-West Sydney. 

The Paper Mill was, as its name implies, originally used as a paper mill during the late 1800s, and at the time was Australia’s largest paper mill. It was alter used as a woollen mill until 1975, and has been brought back to life as a dining precinct.

Inside the Paper Mill are four restaurants, and plenty of seating. 

Shepherd’s Lane

This cafe, bakery and dessert bar is the place to head for breakfast, brunch and lunch, plus serves up sweet treats later on in the day. 

Shepherd’s Lane Has a wide range of pastries on offer, with tempting croissants, muffins, doughnuts and cakes baked on site daily. They also have artisan gelato and desserts available all day.

The signature breakfast and brunch dishes at Shepherd’s Lane include waffles (there is a large waffle and pancake menu), eggs and wood-fired manoush. We dined at Shepherd’s Lane and could not fault the excellent food and coffee.


The Paper Mill’s a la carte dining option is perfect for a special family gathering. Firepit serves meat and fresh market seafood chargrilled or cooked in a wood-fire oven. The Firepit is open daily for lunch and dinner.


Enjoy wood-fired pizza, Neapolitan-style, in a casual setting at this pizzeria and bar. Georgie’s is located near the kids’ indoor play area, making it the perfect family option. Open daily for lunch and dinner.

Charcoal Joe’s

Try Lebanese charcoal chicken cooked on a custom charcoal grill, with a spread of colourful and flavourful mezze, salads, pickles, dips and chips.

Kids’ Play Area

There is a cute little play area for kids that includes little tables, games and cubbies.

The Paper Mill is located between Liverpool and Casula, right near the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre and Casula Parklands Adventure Playground. They offer a valet parking service, however we found parking on the street nearby. You can also catch the train to Casula or Liverpool and take the 10 minute walk there.

The Paper Mill Food is open between 7am – 11pm weekdays, and 7:30am-11pm on weekends. Food is available all day, the kitchens close at 10:30 every night.
