Pethers Executive Chef, Obadiah Faulkner, recently hosted Laurel Edwards from Chanel 7's 'The Great Day Out'. The pair toured some of the amazing local suppliers we have right here on Tamborine Mountain. See for yourself what our talented chef concocts with the delicious fare by clicking here!
Meet Pethers newest residents! Peter and his lovely lady Heather, joined the team in early June and are now making themselves at home in our fifteen acres of Rainforest. Peter and Heather are named after Pethers founding owners and the amalgamation of the two names form our current title, Pethers! Mostly known for being noisy, the Peacocks are only just discernible above the cat calls of the whip bird and many other fauna that call our retreat home.
Swedish Chef Sonny Tapper joined Pethers Executive Chef, Obie Faulkner for a 5 course degaustation extravaganza! The boys utilised Sonny's Michelin Starred training and delivered a delectable fusion of Swedish, meets modern Australian, fare.
The three day event was such a success with each night fully booked, that we look forward to hosting similar events again in the future!

There's something special about Ben & Jen. Having met at design school, the two brought some stunning styling to their 3 day wedding extravaganza at Pethers. Ben's waterfall light feature was almost as stunning as his bride (but not quite). Jen's table settings were romantic and edgy, really complimenting the lush rainforest backdrop. Many happy returns Ben & Jen, we look forward to seeing you both again!
In glorious Tamborine Mountain style, Tom & Estelle were wed at Pethers on Saturday, November 17th. Thunder punctuated their vows and rain lashed the balcony roof, setting a stunning back drop for their forever moment. The balcony is designed to maximise rainforest views and keep all 60 guests dry! A gorgeous country style set up complimented Estelle's vintage lace dress, with Tom looking dapper in tweed. Wishing Tom & Estelle many happy years together!
It was a gorgeous Spring day when Sebastian proposed to his stunning lady. With a candle lit aisle, a dozen long stemmed roses and a bottle of bubbles, Sebastian opened his heart and made promises for their future together. A resounding 'yes' was cause for celebration and dinner for two in Pethers Restaurant ensued. Congratulations Lovers, we know a fantastic place to get married!
Tucked away, down by the stream are Treehouses 'Rosella' & 'Wait a while'. Often times all you'll hear is the tinkle of the stream that borders our six hectares; though if you're really lucky, you might hear the many copy cat calls of our resident Alberts Lyrebird. Though rarely seen, the little fellow has a beautiful plume and looks much like a cross between a pheasant and a peacock. Sit out on your treehouse deck and if you're very lucky, you may see the little fellow trot by.
