Food and wine fest

Mt Duneed Estate’s deal is too good to refuse with kids’ meals on offer for only $5 Tuesday through to Friday. Catch up with your girlfriends for a glass of wine or coffee and let your kids choose from their own menu. From a kids’ platter, ham and cheese toastie or chicken and chips, there’s an option to please even the fussiest of eaters. Once they’ve had their meal they can entertain themselves in the indoor sandpit or draw on the massive chalkboard. Sit back and enjoy your own meal while your children do the same.
