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 sometimes sourced from the Island’s own vegetable and herb garden and then 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 the local seafoods 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.
On arrival guests will meet with our host to discuss their taste preferences and dietary requirements.
Each meal is an event within itself, with gourmet breakfasts, al fresco or picnic lunches and memorable 3 course dinners.
Elysian Eco Retreat's Breakfast is a daily changing menu starting at 8am, guests can make their way at leisure and choose from the menu. Paired with fresh juice or coffee, breakfast is laid-back and a taste of what real island life is all about, with fresh seasonal produce from the garden to your plate.
A delicious al fresco lunch is prepared for guests who choose to spend their day relaxing at Elysian. Alternatively, you can request a picnic hamper to take as you venture out on a day trip.
