Australia’s favourite playground, the Gold Coast, is no longer just for surfers. Our Eat & Drink the Gold Coast experience ticks every box for discerning foodies in search of the perfect day out.

With pick ups included within 30km of both Brisbane and Gold Coast CBDs, your first stop is an eye-opener. Set right beside Burleigh’s famous surf break, Rick Shores is one of Australia’s most sought-after places to eat, and you’re about to find out why. Drink in hand, settle in for a five-course Asian-Australian seafood banquet lunch. Moreton Bay Bug Rolls, duck curry and an idyllic beach backdrop? Yep, we have you covered! Opt for the additional drinks package to really keep things humming. If seafood isn’t your thing, no worries, Rick Shores has you sorted with other yummy dishes!

Next stop: Granddad Jack’s Distillery. Attention gin lovers: this unique core range of gins, paired with tonic water, are the perfect post-banquet digestive. The tasting includes a generous serving of three gin and tonic concoctions, all beautifully put together by Jack’s team.

Choose the full day option, and your last stop is Australia’s best-rated Craft Brewery, Balter. Their logo is a smiley face and its easy to see why. Love IPA’s? Balter’s XPA beer has won over 20 international awards. Not a fan of beer? Try the sours, hazy ales or a host of other options. You won’t be disappointed – just well satisfied for your return trip.

*Rick Shores give us preferred table bookings, but we recommend you make plans early to secure your place. Our venues are some of the most sought-after spots in the country, so sometimes we’ll need to offer alternative dates.
