Treat your taste-buds to a winter foodie adventure on Redlands Coast

Sirromet WinesSome of South-east Queensland’s most highly awarded restaurants, wineries, craft breweries and farm-to-table produce are emerging from Redlands Coast as the region slowly becomes known for its delicious & unique dining experiences. More businesses and events are beginning to recognise Redlands Coast as a premiere food and drink destination, with representatives from the region showcasing their produce at the Queensland Regional Flavours at Southbank in July, as well as the Bayside BBQ & Beer Roadshow coming to the Redland Showgrounds again this year.   

Because of Redland Coast’s unique positioning close to both the bay and the semi-rural suburbs surrounding Mount Cotton, it’s an excellent place to sample winter warmed food, and delicious fresh produce from one of the surrounding farms. One of the most beloved places to visit in the region is Sirromet Winery, which is home to a number of restaurants and a cellar door, where visitors are invited to taste the award winning wines. Restaurant Lurleen’s is particularly popular with outside visitors as they come to sample the contemporary Australian menu, featuring seasonal and regional produce, paired perfectly with delectable wines. 

Another distinguished restaurant in the region is The Lighthouse at Cleveland, which is loved by both locals and visitors alike, thanks to the fresh seafood, fireside dining and dazzling views over the bay. The restaurant was established in 1986 and has become a fundamental player in helping to establish Redlands Coast as a region known for its dining options. 

Bachus-Brewing-CapalabaIf you are looking for a more relaxed setting, one of the most popular new additions of the region is the craft breweries popping up in various locations around the coast. Pay a visit to the award winning Bacchus Brewing Co, located in Capalaba before moving on to sample the distinct flavours on offer at the Red Bay Brewery, in Cleveland. If you would like to sample a wider variety of craft beer, you can also visit the Craft Bar & Kitchen at Birkdale to sip on a larger variety of craft beers from around the state. 

Even though your stomach may be full, there are a few places you must stop for some delicious souvenirs on your way home. One of the most adored bakeries in the region, located in Cleveland, La Bouhce, gives you a little taste of France, with cabinets filled with Parisian style pastries and mouth-watering cakes, donuts and chocolate dipped strawberries. It’s a great place to stop and pick up something for dessert or to take something home for later. If you are from Brisbane and you aren’t quite up for the drive, La Bouche will be showcasing their amazing baked goods at this years Regional Flavours festival in South Bank. 

MountCottonFarm-BrocolliFinally, it wouldn’t be a trip to Redlands Coast without stopping off at the Mount Cotton Farm to really experience the areas agricultural history. The farm is open to the public and is best to visit during the cooler months so you can pick up some of the fresh veggies the locals rave about, including tomatoes, kale, broccoli, cauliflower and more! 

Indulge your culinary senses this winter and experience one of the most underrated foodie adventures in Queensland, with seafood, craft beers, award winning wines, fresh produce and delicious baked goods.
