Must Eat

Gold Kiwi and Avocado

Tamborine Mountain is an outstanding location for gold kiwi with its chill hours, elevation and rich red volcanic soils. There are farms on the mountain that sell a bit of their produce at only $5 a bag at unmanned stands with an “honesty box” for you to drop your coins.

Another fruit that Mt Tamborine is known for is avocado. It grows extremely well here, so well that some people say it grows faster than you can turn your head around. We have several trees at the Escarpment Retreat and we include the delicious avocados in our breakfast spread, whenever they bear fruit.


Witches Chase Cheese and Scenic Rim 4Real Milk

You may have already read that we have several wineries on the mountain, and what better to have with award-winning wine than high quality cheese from Witches Chase Cheese.

Delight in their delicious cheese, ice cream and yogurt, made of fresh minimally processed milk from their partner the Scenic Rim Robotic Dairy – makers of the Scenic Rim 4Real Milk, real milk with cream still on top. A must-eat at their shop is their award-winning Triple Cream Brie, a very rich, full-flavored, robust cheese with a full on creamy flavor and flowing texture.


Gold Coast High Tea at Tea & Niceties
