Harvest Newrybar | Thoughtful New Menu Additions

Harvest is a warm, rustic gem nestled quietly in the Byron Hinterland with plenty of character and heart. New 'Wild Food' additions to the menu echo the country soulfulness and sustainable emphasis we've come to love from the renowned eating house. With the addition of Peter Hardwick, leading authority in Indigenous Food & veteran of the Wild Food Movement, Harvest has broadened their sustainability horizons and introduced a whole other level to the food.

Coming Soon | New Venues To Watch

If you've been noticing new venues popping up like nothing else you're not going flaming mad! The coast has blessed us with number of new amazing destinations with more due to open soon. Our picks to watch include:

Double Barrel Kitchen

Due to open in less than a fortnight, this Mermaid Waters location will be open 7 days a week for Breakfast & Lunch, Dinner service due to commence in September. They promise beautiful coffee, beans from the local Supreme Roasters.

The Loose Moose

The Loose Moose will be a Tap & Grill House celebrating North American eats, whiskey & craft beers. Located in the heart of Broadbeach, the venue will also have a 'Take Me Home Section' so Gold Coasters can get their burger hit on the run.. Due to open in the next week!

Society of Florida

Society of Florida is the second child from the angels that brought us Burleigh Social. We don't know too much about the new cafe & wine bar besides it's location at the base of Florida Gardens in Broadbeach Waters and of course the abundance of local brew expected. They also teamed up with local legends Wooden Collective to incorporate 100 year old timber into their fit out. We're eager to see this one!
