WHERE YOU ARE SPOILED FOR CHOICE Opportunities are available for stargazing, birdwatching, bush walks and wildlife-spotting, as well as bush-tucker dining at a bushland table setting. Yoga, pilates or spa treatments can be organised. A farm-to-table concept is at the heart of the Makepeace Island kitchen, which also uses organic produce, and makes use of the island’s chickens and beehives. Vegans can be catered for. French champagne and welcome platter are in guests’ room on arrival. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, morning and afternoon tea, canapes at sunset, mocktails and non-alcoholic drinks are included. Collection and delivery of client-purchased alcohol is available from local suppliers in Noosa Shire. Tennis, gymnasium, walking trails, billiards, outdoor chess, Northshore bushwalks, a sunset cruise, kayaks, paddle boards, river fishing, lagoon pool and 15-person spa are among a wide variety of activities. Kids can participate in arts and craft, plus fun and educational activities such as cooking classes and story time. While weddings cannot be performed on the island, renewal of vows can be organised. With the best of both worlds, all that Noosa and the Sunshine Coast offer in natural and man-made attractions, world-class restaurants and shopping lie a 10-minute boat ride away. 21 TOWNSVILLE EYE, Saturday, January 12, 2019 V1 - EYEE01Z01MA PRINTED AND DISTRIBUTED BY PRESSREADER +1 604 278 4604 ORIGINAL COPY .
