I'm not a local but I do know that Captains Candy at Ashmore is a great time, Huge range of local and international candy.

Pretty sure it's the place that kick started my Reece's addiction.

i rarely go further north than about miami/broadbeach, im down the southern end
if anyone wants some ideas down this way, let me know
Yes please more the merrier, I’m at Mermaid Beach so Miami and Broady work for me as locations

PS if you want to step back into the 80’s from a decor perspective the Mermaid Beach bowls club is a good spot with cheap meals and drinks, almost expect Muriel to come out and sing ABBA songs

Looking for a place to take Lady Flashheart for her birthday this Sunday evening.

Preferably something with a nice view of the hinterland. Any recommendations?
No hinterland view but Little Truffle in Mermaid Beach is an awesome birthday/anniversary location. Expensive but worth every cent.

If your looking for a bit of entertainment after dinner, the Pink Flamingo Spiegel Club in Broady is very cool. Took the wife there last anniversary, loved it.

Because he wants views of the hinterland I’m struggling to come up with something.
yeah tricky right? We’re both more rainforest than beach type of people but options for Sunday evening are very limited.

I might go with George’s for now.

Thank you to everyone who made suggestions. I’ll have a few to check out for future evenings with the wife. We don’t get out nearly often enough.

Good luck with George’s. The northern end of the GC is my weakness. I’m the man to ask about anything from Broadbeach to the Tweed.

What about the 4 winds revolving restaurant at the Crowne Plaza?
Distant Hinterland views...
I haven’t been there for a couple of years though.

- which option tonight? the hinterland and rainforest or beach. Both within 30 mins of each other.
