Food and Wine - Things to See and Do - Queensland, Australia

Food and Drink

Fresh juicy mangoes, seafood straight off the trawler, roasted macadamia nuts, and home-made goodies fresh from the oven are just some of the mouth-watering temptations waiting for you in tasty Queensland! And if you like a good drop to pair with your fare enjoy a bottle from a boutique Queensland vineyard, which are fast developing a reputation as the ones to watch.

Food for Thought

  • Tantalise your taste buds at award-winning and hatted fine dining restaurants in Brisbane

  • Sample bush tucker and traditional indigenous foods in Tropical North Queensland.
  • Go casual with fish and chips on the beach at the Fraser Coast and in The Whitsundays or chew with a view on the Gold Coast.
  • Take a class and learn the secrets of a perfect curry, try out cheese making, or master the tricks of a chocolate soufflé at a cooking class.
  • Pile your plate high with prawns, oysters, mud crab, scallops or Moreton Bay Bugs to enjoy the abundance quality, local Queensland seafood all year round.

Everything’s Vine
