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!

A trip down Memory Lane
Retro, Rockabilly… your era? Step back in time....
Chicks at Ricks
Dust off the moth balls and pull out your stovepipes, psychedelic tie-dye shirts, culottes, flare-bottomed pants, high-waisted capri pants and polka-dotted tops and hit the road, 'Jack"…..uhm, or is that "Jill".
A Classic car enthusiast, bike enthusiast? Or just hankering for a bit of reminiscing ....then Rick's Garage and Diner in Palmwoods on route to Montville is THE place to be seen!
Bar/sales counter with classic car models
This retro-chic Diner, an old refurbished garage, is only fifteen to 20 minutes from Buderim or Maroochydore by car, and offers all sorts of exciting events for those of us feeling like we've "Lost that Loving Feeling":-
Thursday Nights: Moonshine Cruising - A collection of Old/Classic and State of the Art custom Hotrods. Thursday nights are also to showcase local up and coming talented artists on stage.
Friday nights: Rockabilly/Retro and Rides Night: Dress Up Time and get down to the beats of a great Rockabilly Band. Make it even better by turning up in your favourite Classic Ride.
Saturday and Sundays: All day and into the evening Rick's hosts numerous car and bike events, a great way to entertain visitors and friends with live music in the beer garden, enjoying the super-sized hamburgers and milkshakes on offer.
The perfect decor, music and memorabilia taking you back to yesteryear will take you a month of Sundays to explore, and the array of bikes and Classic cars on display is enough for you to salivate and realise 'Those were the days'!
Funky Bar Stools
Step back in time - visit Rick's Garage and Diner and bring "Peter, Paul and Mary" in your "Yellow Submarine" - you'll do it again and again!
Don't forget - "You heard it through the Grapevine"!
