Escape to the mountains and enjoy a dreamy dining experience set amongst the clouds

If you’ve been wondering where to spend your next weekend away, why not consider escaping into the mountains and 1100 m above sea level at Spicers Peak Lodge in Maryvale. It’s there where you will find award-winning restaurant The Peak, which is taking contemporary Australian cuisine to dizzying heights, highlighting the very best of Australian flavours, produce, creativity and technique. If a luxury retreat set amongst the clouds sounds like the perfect getaway to you, read on to discover all of the dreamy details …

Poised majestically atop a soaring mountain with the Great Dividing Range as your backdrop, Spicers Peak Lodge is surrounded by untouched rainforest and the awe-inspiring scenery of the Scenic Rim. You will feel on top of the world as you make your way up the long winding road that delivers you to the lodge, where you will be completely immersed in the sights, sounds and spirit of unspoiled wilderness and exquisite luxury. Much like the breathtaking beauty that surrounds you at Peak Lodge, the mouth-watering menu that awaits you at The Peak Restaurant is electrifying, bold, elegant and thoughtful. Made only with the finest regional produce, The Peak boasts an enchanting dining experience elevated (if that’s even possible) by an uninterrupted view of the Scenic Rim mountain ranges.

You can choose to experience The Peak during breakfast, lunch or dinner, with the restaurant offering an a la carte menu in the morning and evening and a four-course degustation during lunch. Helmed by executive chef Karl Reyes, the kitchen embraces a simple, refined luxury, with clean flavours and an almost nostalgic respect for traditional ingredients and techniques. Start your day the right way with a breakfast menu featuring classic dishes with a Spicers twist. Think eggs Benedict, smashed avocado, waffles, pecan and almond porridge and The Peak’s big brekkie, which includes bacon, eggs, black pudding, roast tomato, sauteed mushrooms and a slice of sourdough. Then come lunchtime, indulge in a four-course menu featuring Western Australia rock lobster, Red Gum lamb rack, 9Dorf chicken and a chocolate marquis with coffee ice-cream to finish off. As the sun sets over the mountains, settle in for a romantic dinner and sink your teeth into a selection of primo plates including a mushroom medley with shitake jelly and porcini cream, applewood smoked duck with beetroot and berry puree and school mackarel with Mooloolaba prawn, celeriac mash and herb oil. Finish off the feasting festivities with a drool-worthy macadamia sorbet with wattleseed and almond frangipane and pecan praline.
