The charming Tea and Niceties on Tambourine Mountain is the place you’ve been looking for with their high tea room available Wed to Mon, their garden café while enjoying their selection of cakes and coffee (everything’s better with cake and coffee), or a gorgeous wedding spot for up to 200 guests. #finelife


This quaint cottage café just gives off happy, cosy vibes all round, and their high teas are no different. With everything rose, starting with Sparkling Rose Bliss Champagne Cocktail.

With two sittings per day – 11am and 2pm – with bookings, you’ll be charmed by both the setting and the mouth-watering food. Just the thing for a sweet, cosy celebration. Enjoy the rose-themed event with some close friends, relishing the exquisitely furnished and comfortably air-conditioned tea room of Flutterbies.

Magic and nature go hand in hand, wouldn’t you say? And who doesn’t like a bit of magic in their life, especially when the time comes for celebration? Time to get outdoors and into the wild (except with more glamour) and enjoy God’s given earth for what it is. Whether it’s making magic on your big day, reigniting the magic back in your life with loved ones with social events, or even letting the magic dribble into your work life on corporate retreats, Pethers Rainforest Retreat is awaiting at North Tambourine.

Because we all deserve a little magic in our lives.


Your event right on Gallery Walk, now that’s more like it. Whether it’s weddings, high teas or other celebrations, you’ll be sippin’ wine while you dine with a Vineyard wedding theme with a 17-acre heritage backdrop. Or treat yo self and your friends to a gourmet treat in a decadent setting. Cheers darling, we’ll see you there!

I’m a creative writer and film enthusiast at heart. Give me a good book or enthralling movie and I’m good to go. Better yet, put some paper and a pen in my path and I’m ready to take on the world. I love trying new things, whether it’s a new cafe around the corner, attending a film premier, checking out new markets or seeking the next new event or concert in the area. I’m enjoying the spoils of Gold Coast life currently, and ready to continue exploring, both locally and beyond, with my pen at the ready.
