Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

The Boat Shed has to be one of my all-time favourite places to go when looking for dining out to celebrate a special occasion.

Overlooking the tranquil waters of the Maroochy River, The Boat Shed is a Sunshine Coast icon ensuring one's dining experience is total relaxation and panoramic. The chefs of The Boat Shed have created a spectacularly diverse menu, utilising the freshest seasonal produce, sourced locally - a contemporary Australian cuisine menu that literally has all the bases covered.

If you're looking for a casual but stylish dining experience, The Boat Shed will definitely deliver with generous servings and an excellent wine list.

The only 'down-side' I have with The Boat Shed is that they don't open for breakfast - it's definitely a place I would frequent more often should 'breakfast like a king' be available. If you're looking for anything else, lunch, dinner, coffee, tapas or drinks in-between, you'll be very well catered for.

Providing a truly unique location for weddings, corporate functions and special occasions, The Boat Shed's Event Management Team are able to provide professionalism and attention to detail ensuring that your special event is a resounding success.

How about a stroll on the beach late afternoon and then stopping off at The Boat Shed for some tapas and a drink (I'm not insisting on alcoholic here) to watch the sunset - an idyllic location affording one the opportunity to kick back and bask in the ambience of your surrounds.

Street and parking lot parking is available but can be pretty hectic on a weekend. The Boat Shed do take reservations and are always happy to accommodate with walk-ins, with a comfortable lounge area set aside for waiting diners. A child-friendly venue, providing the littlies with pictures and crayons and with the outdoor seating, one can keep a watchful eye on the tiny tots who rebel against being seated for too long.
