Shute Harbour Café and Bar
During the day, this lovely harbourside café serves up breakfast, lunch and drinks in quiet surroundings, but once a month they are now also 'dishing up' what's known as Shute Harbour Comes Alive.
Shute Harbour Comes Alive is a monthly event featuring live music and fantastic food, and it's getting a reputation for a great nightspot outside the metropolis of Airlie Beach. Past events have included some big names including the rockin' Wee Johnny's, who played their catchy originals and classic covers in perfect harmony; it really was a foot tappin', fun evening. This is where Queensland talent meets some of Australia's popular artists and the combination is a winning one.
Along with great company and great music comes the great food. Shute Harbour Comes Alive invites guest chefs such as Paul Floss to create stunning dishes for a special evening. Paul's speciality is the fragrant aromas of Thailand, but other chefs have their own take on the evening, and combine the very best and freshest locally sourced ingredients. The food is accompanied by the equally impressive wines, specially selected from some of the best wine regions in South Australia, including those of George Ochota, Australian Amateur Wine Maker of the Year. So you see this is really a local and Aussie combo.
Shute Harbour Comes Alive is held once a month, so check out their Facebook page for details of the next event. But if you can't make it for a Shute Harbour Comes Alive night, why not visit during the day? The scenery is fantastic. Check out the houses clinging to the cliffs, walk along the beach with its brilliant white sand and dip your toes in the crystal clear water. The café makes a wonderful spot for a long, lazy lunch under the sails, or a big breakfast before taking a ferry to one of the nearby islands.
