Songbirds Rainforest Retreat

Maybe you aren’t the binocular-toting, bird-watching type who enjoys crouching behind foliage with a thermos writing field notes. No worries. Your other option is to keep a sharp lookout as you settle into a plush seat at Songbirds for degustation or √† la carte. With 52 acres of lush rainforest on this property, the vibe is gloriously peaceful but won’t have you snoring by second course.

Not many restaurants can boast their own organic veggie garden (unless they’re the French Laundry), but Songbirds keeps us on our toes with the best of their private acre invested in a menu that changes every six weeks. This season Chef de cuisine Trent Scarr¬†experiments with nut milks, herb infusions, dashi stocks and curative properties. After a bottle from their award-winning wine list and a selection of Tamborine Witches Chase cheeses, you’ll be winging back for more.
