Of particular interest in the south east is on 7th November:

Saltwater Dining
The expansive waters of Moreton Bay provide a glorious backdrop to a contemporary Aboriginal dining experience.

On Saturday 7 November, The Little Ship Club welcomes Dale Chapman, Queensland's only acclaimed Aboriginal chef when she cooks with community taking traditional recipes using fish, fruit, berries, eugaries and other seasonal foods to create a meal for the contemporary palate.

Join the island community as they share food traditions, stories and recipes from the bay.

Ferry departs the Gold Cat Stradbroke Flyer terminal at the end of Middle Street Cleveland, (Blue and Yellow office) at 4pm and 5pm and returns at 9.30pm.

Date and times: 7th Nov 2009 4:00pm-9:00pm

Cost: $15 (plus booking fees) - Dinner only; $25 (plus booking fees) - Dinner and return ferry
Bookings: Required - book through qtix or phone 136246.

Venue: The Little Ship Club, 1 Yabby Street, Dunwich, North Stradbroke Island


We're going along to try and find more things to do with the food we grow, especially the lemon myrtle, and also to find other things to grow that we can use in the kitchen.

Thought other members may be interested. Wish we lived in NQ for some of the events they are having up there...

That really sounds great! I think I'll go along to that 8) (Y) . I like to plant aromatics in the garden and I've tried quite a few. The lemons and lime tastes (leaves) go very nicely with fish baked in foil. Fish, actually is a very good medium to try things out on as it has such a delicate flavour.
(Y) Thanks for the heads up on the trip.

Dinner was fantastic. This was our table:

We started with oysters and condiments. There was pepper, finger limes, lemon things and pink salt. Any clues on what the lemon things were would be great. Definately planting finger limes.
