Spicers Tamarind Retreat

Vendor sincce 2015


Spicers Retreats started with the idea of sharing a little known area of Queensland’s spectacular high country, thinking if New Zealand can have great lodges why can’t we?

Beginning with Spicers Peak Lodge in the mountains of the Great Dividing Range, guests can now choose from seven very individual retreats covering southeast Queensland and the Hunter Valley in New South Wales.

We genuinely believe that while people come for the luxury what they really gain is the rejuvenation that comes with getting in touch with the natural surroundings.

We call it ‘relaxed luxury’, a feeling of being totally at home and free to be yourself. It’s not solely about a comfortable bed, quality furnishings, personalised service and great food, it’s just as much about the feeling of being renewed and reinvigorated by the land itself.

We think what we have achieved is a true blend of luxury and an authentic Australian style of hospitality. There’s nothing better for us than to be at one of our retreats and see it being used the way we imagined, so please take some time to enjoy the unique, inspiring spaces we’ve created.

11 September 2017 • French - Long Course Cooking Classes

My wife Kim and I had a fantastic experience. Phil our chef Was great and ensured the day was fun and informative. We learned some practical and useful new cooking techniques and we have put them to good use at home already. The produce made available to us was fresh and full of flavour. To top it off we shared the experience with a group of friendly like-minded people who we had never met before. We definitely intend to return and do another class. We highly recommend this experience to anyone.

Not knowing what to expect and not having done a cooking class before, I was a clean slate and enjoyed meeting others, some of whom had done other classes before. The menu change first drew my attention, and it was good to be introduced to and reminded of cuisine from the southern region of France, rather than the quintessential heavy cream sauces, slow cooked casseroles, or escargot. It was quite an adventure, and I have recommended it to everyone I know. Thank you for a great experience.

I did the French class with my mum & brother. We all really enjoyed the experience and walked away feeling like we learn't some new skills. We would absolutely return to try a class in a different cuisine.
