Drift has fast become a symbol of the quintessential, never-give-up Australian attitude. The story of its revival after the Queensland floods is now the poster boy for the state's recovery effort.
In its brand new digs, set overlooking the 18th green of the Brookwater Golf Course, there are few better places for this darling of the Brissie dining scene to make its triumphant return. (And yes, it is well away from the water's edge this time.) Just like its previous incarnation in Milton, Drift has retained the services of Romain Bapst at the helm of the kitchen, and his return menu is impressive to say the least. The faith shown in financing the revival of Drift has been repaid in full with a menu that reads more like an homage to Queensland's premier produce. As has become Bapst's calling card, he manages to bring refinement and subtlety to traditionally comforting foods. Salt and pepper calamari is elevated by a pairing of sweet and sour Mediterranean vegetables; while a sauteed Morton Bay bug tail coupled with handmade gnocchi, chestnuts, peas and sage transcends rustic charm into the sublime. Like the seasonal, made-to-order souffle that reigns supreme over Drift's dessert menu, we've had to be patient to see the end result of this restaurant's resurgence. But just like the souffle it's well worth the wait. Location/Address/Phone No./Fax No.

Cairns Golf Club ( Website)
Established in 1930, Cairns Golf Club's 18 hole layout was redesigned by Ross Watson in 1992.Set amid spectacular mountain scenery, the course features generous fairways and large greens making it player-friendly for members & social players. However for all major events the course proves a more challenging test. With the tees back and the pins tricky suddenly friendly becomes mean and the course proves that it can bite back.
