Join us at our table as we welcome you to a feast of the senses. A dining experience unlike any other, follow a journey of palate and time guided by a First Nation Chef through the oldest flavours in the world.

Kieron Anderson “The Quandamooka Chef” of Yalabin Dining, a passionate Quandamooka and Kullilli man, presents a mouth-watering menu utilising sacred native flavours. In a delicate and respectful fusion of ancient flavours and fine dining flare, traditional cooking techniques will be used to create a contemporary cuisine. Satiate your appetite with a thoughtfully created menu which showcases native bush foods alongside locally sourced produce and awaken your spirit as you learn about the food, customs, and deep spiritual connection of the oldest living culture in the world.

Presented under a magical canopy of “light flowers” designed by Kevin O’Brien and a sky heavy with stars we invite you to join us and share in this unique culinary journey on the foreshore of Yugambeh Country.

The stories embedded as part of this unique menu experience incorporates traditional stories and cultural knowledge. This body of work has been created in accordance with cultural protocols which must be respected as they have significant cultural importance to my family and country.
