As promised in my last post, here are a few more pictures and details from our time at Pethers Mt Tambourine.
This man and this place…WOW. WOW. WOW.
We ate dinner at DeliVino On Tambourine and just loved it. It was warm, lit with candles and our waiter was really friendly and attentive. The walls were filled with photographs from around the world that caught glimpse into the lives of those photographed. Their emotions, lifestyle and culture permeated through and were a delight to admire over dinner. I chose from the tapas menu and had ‘salt and pepper calamari with cirtris ailoi’ and ‘grilled portobello mushrooms with persian feta, hazelnut crumble and pesto’.Reis chose the weekly special which was pork and herbs homemade sausage, mashed potato and broccolini. We were both very impressed with our meals. We drank the nicest mulled wine I’ve ever had (potentially because it was my first cup of mulled wine) and enjoyed the warmth sliding down our throat on a cool winters evening in the mountains. Next time we are in the mountains we will definitely return here. Being a deli by day, they also sell these cute picnic baskets to help you enjoy your relaxing day in the mountain. What a great idea! If you prefer to eat breakfast out, this Brisbane blogger did a great post on DeliVino too.
The next morning we awoke to a knock on the door of our tree house. There was no one there but this beautiful little breakfast basket filled with goodies and a paper informing us of our new Prime Minister. Toast, pastries, cereal and yogurt -yum!
We spent the rest of the day wandering the nearby mountain shops, buying gourmet chocolate and sipping coffee.
We enjoyed some wine and port tasting at the local winery. The chocolate port was divine, it filled your mouth with a warm dark chocolate aftertaste. Unfortunately the photo below isn’t in black and white, it was just a very dreary grey day.
Our afternoon was spent wandering the avocado orchid at Pethers and just enjoying being together. I would highly recommend Mt Tambourine for a holiday, especially staying at Pethers. If you missed my first post on Pethers have a look here.
