DISCOVER OUR NEW 3 DAY TOUR: THE BRISBANE TO BYRON FOOD TRAIL




Eat & Drink
the Gold Coast

Experience the hottest food & drink venues at Australia’s Favourite Playground

ITINERARY OVERVIEW

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 from Brisbane, Gold Coast, Tweed and Byron Bay regions, 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 Gold Coast local favourite Craft Brewery, Precinct. Love IPA’s or Hazy Pales? Precinct has all types of tasty beers on tap. Not a fan of beer? Try the sours, hazy ales or a host of other non-beer options. You won’t be disappointed – just well satisfied for your return trip.

FREQUENTLY ASKED 
QUESTIONS

How long should I book in advance?

If booking for a tour on a weekend day, it is recommended that you book at least one month in advance. If booking on a weekday, at least two weeks in advance is recommended.

Do you offer peak and off-peak pricing? 

Yes! Tours which run mid-week are cheaper to book than if booking for the weekend. 

What’s the minimum group size for a  private tour? 

We can provide private tours for groups as small as two – however, as we’re sure you’d understand, groups of this size attract a significantly higher price per person. While our regular vehicles seat 11 people, we can accommodate groups of up to 40 with the use of larger buses. All private tours are by appointment, are subject to availability and must be enquired for in advance to ensure our preferred venues can accommodate our group.

 

What happens if venues on the tour are booked out for a function?

The itinerary is subject to availability and may be altered to differing times as well as alternative suppliers when booked out for functions or events. We will always communicate any changes to existing itineraries if they occur.

How do I secure a booking?

For groups of 8 or more, to secure a booking, you must pay a 50% deposit for a private tour booking. The balance is then due at least 7 days prior to departure. While for groups smaller than 8, a full payment is required to secure a booking.
