Spicers Tamarind Retreat

Vendor since 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 eight very individual retreats covering southeast Queensland and the northeast of 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.

22 November 2017 • French Summer Menu - Cooking Class

The class was fantastic! Exceeded all expectations. The chef had a lovely calm nature and gave great tips along the way. It was obvious that everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The design of the menu and drinks complemented each other and the level of cooking difficulty suited novices (which most of us were). I really appreciated that only the finest and freshest ingredients were used-down to the cultured French butter. Bravo. I will definitely go to more classes in the future.

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.
