Wander through a European-inspired festive market, then sip mulled wine over a three-course meal.
Europe's chilly weather has already been and gone for the year — and no one can currently leave Australia to take a holiday, anyway — but, Brisbanites, you can still hit up a festive winter market. Taking place in the Tamborine Mountain area between Friday, June 18–Sunday, June 20, Evergreen Festival will make you feel like you've ventured far, far away. That's the aim, at least. The mulled wine will surely help.
When you're not wandering around the market and shopping for food to eat straight away — including cannoli — plus knickknacks to take home with you, you can also sip steamy, stomach-warming vino at the Scandinavian-inspired dining village. It'll be doing a number of different dinner options, including a three-course feast using fresh produce from the Scenic Rim. And if you're wondering about the theme, it'll come through in the furnishings.
Entry to the market will be free, but everything else will obviously require your wallet.
Expect trees adorned with lights to really set the mood — and live entertainment as well.
