Arrive at your accommodation to check in and put your bags down.
Start with a drink at Bar Wunder in the middle of town, which is all about craft beer, seasonal cocktails and a simple wine list. Settle down into one of the couches and start thinking about dinner.
Next, walk up the flight of stairs next door to the loft restaurant Kajoku for a fun group dinner of authentic Korean and Japanese cuisine. Beloved for their traditional BBQ, which you cook at your own table, Kajoku also has the largest range of Japanese whisky in Queensland, and the largest range of Japanese craft gin in the world (outside of Japan). There is both a traditional room with Korean-style floor seating, as well as a main dining room.
End the night with a karaoke booth or a cocktail at Santé within easy walking distance.
A fresh brunch at Urban Grounds is just the ticket, with an all-day breakfast menu and beautiful al fresco dining (or an indoor fireplace, depending on the season). Situated across from Laurel Bank Park, it is a refreshing way to start the day.
If you’re in the mood for more plants, visit The Springs nursery before nabbing a table at Kingfisher’s, the adjoining restaurant. Often with live acoustic music on the weekends, make sure you wander all the way down the path to the hidden pergola, the best seat in the house. If you’re still full from brunch, there’s a cake cabinet full of treats to snack on instead.
Finish off a food-filled day with dinner at The Rock, a modern gastropub that offers everything from stone-baked pizzas to premium steaks alongside a premium drinks menu. The beer garden with live music every weekend is a sure-fire way to guarantee a good night out with friends.
Every local would likely recommend Sweet Talk for a weekend breakfast, and it’s a must before you leave. Make sure you book a table at this trendy inner-city café with its fun, delicious brunch menu and excellent coffee.
