After a day celebrating at Yura Yalingbila festival event, relax, take in the view and watch the whales as the sun sets over the majestic Pacific Ocean.
Timed to accommodate the Stradbroke Chamber Music Festival, guests will be seated at 7:45pm for a native taste inspired dégustation menu brought to you by Traditional Owner Chef, Kieron Anderson. Indigenous tastes sourced and foraged on Quandamooka land and sea, are brought to your palate through modern plates. Marrying a passion for sharing ancient aboriginal culture and fine food, you will be immersed in a dining experience you won’t forget under the merrikin merrikin (stars).Comfortably gathered with an open fire pit, strummed acoustic tunes waft through the air as we are nestled in the parklands on the headland above the pacific ocean. Lit by fairy lights strung between trees and the merrikin merrikin (stars), the evening aims to delight more than just our culinary senses.
