Gather your nearest and dearest for the ultimate long-lunch experience at Mrs Frost’s Kitchen

In the depths of Guanaba in the Gold Coast hinterland sits Mrs Frost's Kitchen – a picturesque family farm that is inviting locals to its lush neck of the woods for outdoor dining experiences featuring curated menus of paddock-to-plate fare. If you and your pack have been searching for a different way to do a long lunch, this is it.


The pandemic has certainly changed the way we dine out, celebrate and socialise. With many of us still working from home, we’re craving that human connection and want to get out and about. With restrictions in place, birthdays and special occasions are just, well, different. For Julie Frost, her namesake farm concept is all about filling those pandemic-induced voids with an ‘experiential dining’ offering, where groups of ten to 35 can escape the city and come together to enjoy comforting, home-style food in a glorious outdoor setting (complete with resident cows), no matter what the occasion.

Mrs Frost’s Kitchen offers a series of different private-dining packages, including a civilised sit-down long lunch ($110 per adult) overlooking the rolling hills where you’ll enjoy a four-course paddock-to-plate feast. There’s also a country-style buffet lunch ($75 per adult) served in a more casual setting where guests can stand or sink into camp chairs while enjoying the farm-fresh fare, as well as a stand-up sundowner package ($59 per adult) where you and a minimum of ten friends (and a maximum of 40) can enjoy substantial nibbles cooked over the campfire. All of the menus are personally curated by Julie and are tailored to each party’s requirements. Oh, and here’s the kicker – it’s BYO.

Ready to long lunch in the hinterland? Gather a minimum of ten pals and head for the Guanaba hills. For more information on Mrs Frost’s Kitchen and to organise your own long lunch, head to the website.
