Eat & Drink


From the Garden

Our chefs daily changing menu is inspired by the natural surroundings of Long Island and the Whitsundays, using the freshest seasonal produce sourced from the Island’s own vegetable garden and from nearby surrounding farming regions. Nearby Bowen is arguably the food bowl of Australia. Fresh prawns, Moreton Bay bugs and tropical rock lobsters are just some of local delicacies sourced from local fisherman or suppliers.

Fresh & Organic

As much as possible, ingredients are fresh, local, seasonal, sustainable, free range and organic to ensure your dining experience is wholesome, nourishing and comforting.
