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 February 2018 • Italian Summer Menu - Cooking Class

We thoroughly enjoyed our Italian Cooking Class. Sharon is a excellent instructor- very patient, and she assisted us as necessary without bringing attention to our lack of culinary expertise! We also enjoyed the company of the other participants, and by the time lunch was prepared and served, we had become a relaxed and friendly group. We will certainly be putting "Italian" more frequently on our home menu!.
