Kooroomba Vineyard and Lavender Farm provides a southern France experience on the doorstep of Brisbane and is the perfect setting for a relaxing day away.Principals Bob and Marlene Carroll have invested $3 million into the development, which is seven years in the making.

The award winning cellar door/restaurant complex is of a 5 star level and is a blend of rustic and contemporary architecture.

The wine marketed from the cellar door is from grape grown on the property, which along with the Modern Australian cuisine served in the restaurant from local produce provides a unique regional wine and food experience.

Kooroomba has a large variety of wines including Chardonnay, Verdelho Marsanne, Shiraz, Cabernet and Merlot.

The unusual Verdelho Marsanne blend has been served in Paris

  • We had our wedding here, and it was sensational. Thanks to Verity and Doogan, who run a fine establishment, across the board. Our guests have not stopped raving about the venue, food, customer, service, and the list goes on. Our wedding day is one to remember, thanks to all the staff and management.
  • A bit pricey, but lovely for a coffee in the afternoon as the kids can run through lavender. Great photos!!
  • The beautiful vista from the resaurant, has been ruined by a wedding chapel, that could have been placed in a much more appropriate spot. What the hell were they thinking!?
  • Great food and atmosphere. We visited for my Wife's birthday and were seated near a huge window that overlooked the mountains. The staff were very friendly and the food was incredible. I had a delicious Lamb's Breast served with a garden salad and my wife had salmon served on a bed of risotto. We finished off with a freshly baked Souffle covered in fresh passion fruit and with a side of passion fruit ice cream. We'll be back again.
  • Beautiful site, building, grounds and mountain backdrop. Well worth the visit. Loved being able to see the Lavender growing and in full bloom this late August day. Lots of bees on the flowers. The staff didn't seem to have any problem with the many people in the flower rows taking photos. The Vineyard sits between the Lavender gardens and the mountain backdrop. You can sit on the hill beside the fields and just take in the view. Love the little shop. We went into the restaurant and asked about devonshire teas but they said they don't serve those. Would love there to be have been a Cafe for casual refreshments. I recommend an hour or so visit. Bring a camera. Another advantage is that it is nearby other places such as Mount French which has great view.
