Great Gift Ideas!

Time for a Christmas shop, and why not enjoy it properly with a lunch along the way, where you can also buy gift vouchers as pressies! 

We love the locally sourced and homemade dishes at Homegrown in Palmwoods, the divine French patisseries and coffee at Le Relais Bressan in Maleny, the hearty fare and tempting cakes at The Barn on Flaxton, the sweet treats and varied lunch choices at Ikigai in Crystal Waters, and the flavoursome, seasonal menu at Kondalilla Restaurant. Check our Taste Trail pages 12-14 for details.
