Our Mother’s Day Brisbane Top Picks:
Living Room Bar, W Brisbane
Wow factor with a capital W. Forget what you know about high tea, the W Brisbane Hotel is about to challenge everything you thought you knew. As soon as the ‘W’ shaped stand is placed out in front of you – you know there is going to be nothing traditional about this experience. Australia’s premiere W Hotel has shaken things up – and I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

Stamford Plaza Brisbane
This venue with its stunning floral bouquets and drifty sounds from a strings-weilding musical ensemble, inspired by the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong, is stunning. The Stamford takes cue from a colonial past and offers a high tea service fit for the Queen. In regards to food, we particularly enjoyed the crispy, non-greasy chicken curry puffs.

Plazzo Versace Gold Coast
The Palazzo Versace high tea has an offering of magnificent martinis and cocktails, barista made coffee, decadent treats and elegant snacks.

QT Hotel Gold Coast
There’s no chance of forgetting where you are with this hotel’s 1950s-inspired beach-club resort feel, and treats that take form of bikini babes. Just a short stroll from Surfers Paradise Beach this high tea offers an exquisite but surprising menu. What appears to be a sweet red macaron (isn’t that always the case?) is actually a tomato one that features tomato consommé gel, cream cheese and basil from QT’s garden. You can also add a little something extra to your experience by sipping on some delicious Champagne Perrier-Jouet.
