The trip of course takes you to the gates of Australia Zoo. You and your family will be amazed and delighted by the various wildlife encounters you can have there.

With three heated lagoon-style pools and five BBQ and outdoor dining areas, it’s very easy to find your holiday groove and chill out at the Ivory Palms Resort. Pop over to Tewantin where you can find the local Woolworths or Coles Express. The Noosa Harbour Fish Market is also in Tewantin. As well as the daily catch, fresh Mooloolabah prawns are bought in daily. Just the thing for the barbie.

While our resort in Noosaville may be at a comfortable remove from Hastings Street and the buzz of Noosa Heads, it is still very accessible. One of the nicest ways to travel around Noosa is via the Noosa Ferry service. An all day pass on the ferry is very good value, especially if this is the first time you’ve been to Noosa. Hop on and traverse the length of the ferry trip and back again to get your bearings.

Degustation Central

The great degustation is a really big feature of this year’s festival and there are several opportunities to enjoy a meal that in simple terms can only be described as a train of small courses cleverly designed and cooked to complement each other, with each course accompanied by complimentary wines or beer matches.

A lunch in the festival village marquee on the beach brings together the state’s top chefs for a degustation lunch – Philip Johnson, Matt Golinski matched with Queensland wines. This is the relaxed way to sample the region’s tastes for a mere A$135.

How about the Westpac Premier International Degustation: $495 gets you the festival grand slam including San Pellegrino Top 50 chefs – David Thompson of Nahm, Thailand – plus London’s  Bruno Loubet and Alvin Leung of Hong Kong’s Bo Innovation; or the Netanya Premier eight-course degustation with e’cco’s Philip Johnson, Justin North and Cutler & Cos’ Andrew McConnell.

What about sampling tastes from around the world – on the beach, with a sunset seafood feast. Not really degustation, but a similar idea but more… in seafood. Jim Berardo hosts seven of Aussie’s hottest Italian chefs (including Guy Grossand Massimo Mele, for one wonderful sunset feast at Noosa’s National Park, MCd by the larger-than-life Maria Venuti (A$295). This gastronomic event matches food with Japanese Asahi beer and cider, Aussie bush barbecue, the best French Champagnes and then some great, local seafood and produce.

Great Little Stop” Reviewed June 5, 2013 NEW

Had a lovely 4 night mid-week stay in a one bedroom apartment. Wonderful receptionist on arrival with excellent customer service. Lovely apartment with a great shower and spa. Loved the deck next to the pond and had an eel that I feed every morning while having my breakfast. Easy walking to the ferry, Yatch Club and riverside restaurants. I have recommended this resort to family and friends.

Great Place to Stay” Reviewed May 27, 2013

Our 1 Bedroom Apartment was spotless and overlooked one of the pools. The Resort is fastidiously maintained and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The $15 Buffet Breakfast was great and plenty of it. Next door for Lunch and Dinner, the Bowls Club has a special cheap menu and the food is good too.
All in all a great break and would definitely stay here again. Thank you.
