Looking for Something Different in Brisbane
Putt your way through this magical, sugar-inspired Candyland complete with giant ice creams, Easter eggs and lollipops and you can attempt to hit a hole-in-one on sweet new runs like the 'Fairy Floss Fairway,' 'Easter Eggstravaganza,' 'Sugar Hit' and 'Bunny's Burrow.’ Will the Easter bunny himself make an appearance? Well, we can’t be sure, but if all the sugary decorations make you hungry, you can always hit the bistro afterwards, or just grab a drink at the onsite bar and walk the course with it.
Brisbane's Tastiest dish for under $20
Can we have a hallelujah? If you're a mac'n'cheese aficionado you'll be delighted at Char's soupy and saucy version of this comforting classic. Today's version is a four-cheese pleasure bowl of béchamel laced with Gruyère, aged cheddar, Parmesan and pecorino with a faint note of aromatic black truffle. The mac's golden-crumbed pangrattato topping gives the mac a beautiful textural crunch.
