I’ve been promising myself for a long time that I would pay a visit to Kim’s Beachside Retreat at Toowoon Bay and I was able to spend a few days there over Christmas. My terrace cabin had a beautiful view over the bay, but the resort is so secluded I could have been anywhere. As well as beautiful grounds and beach access, the resort has its own cocktail bar and restaurant that provides buffet style breakfast and dinner each day. The food is fantastic with an exceptional range of dishes all made from fresh ingredients, many locally supplied. Kim’s even makes its own range of organic honey. On Christmas Eve, dinner included entertainment from Dorian Mode with a a selection of smooth jazzy numbers and traditional Christmas carols, some with lyrics specially adapted to suit our own Aussie climate and circumstances.
The restaurant is also open to the general public, but prior booking is essential. Details, sample menus and more information are available from the website at https://kims.com.au/
