Kiff & Culture Tours - Tour

Hope you’re hungry for an adventure! At Kiff and Culture, they take you on a journey that blends epic food and drinks experiences with local culture and outdoor fun.

They're lucky to have some of Australia’s top restaurants, cafes, wineries, distilleries, breweries and providores on their doorstep in southeast Queensland and northern New South Wales, and their relaxed tours take you to their hands-down faves in these stunning regions.

While eating and drinking your way around these iconic areas, you’ll also soak up some spectacular subtropical scenery, get a taste of local culture, and meet some awesome people. Their guides feel like friends, their tunes reign supreme, and they take care of every last detail so that you can kick back and enjoy the ride.

The Farm, Lighthouse, Food & Drink (Byron Bay)


Setting off from the Gold Coast at 8.30am, we’ll cruise down through the rolling green farmlands of the Tweed Valley towards the iconic northern New South Wales beach town of Byron Bay. After taking in the sweeping views from Cape Byron Lighthouse – keep your eyes peeled for migrating whales between June and October – you can opt to take a refreshing dip at the beach. Next up we’ll visit cafe Top Shop for a caffeine hit before we head to The Farm. This lush, working farm on the fringe of Byron is anchored by the lauded Three Blue Ducks restaurant, where we’ll tuck into an incredible lunch showcasing produce harvested just metres from our table. There’ll be time to take a stroll around the property to meet the Highland cows, purchase some homegrown sunflowers at the on-site florist, or perhaps grab an ice-cream at Baylato, before we head to Stone & Wood to sample the famed Byron Bay brewery’s multi-award-winning beers. Set in a lush rainforest, Cape Byron Distillery specialises in gin (with whisky on the way), while Lord Byron Distillery produces rum, vodka, gin and more. Both venues also have sustainability stories as epic as their boozy offerings.

Tweed Hinterland Food & Drink


Leaving the Gold Coast behind, you’ll be amazed by how quickly the urban jungle morphs into the rolling farmlands of the Tweed Valley in the northeastern corner of New South Wales. Our first stop will be at an organic family farm and cafe where we’ll take a walk around the picturesque property, visit a friendly pig, pick some sunflowers, and perhaps crack some delicious local macadamias, depending on the season. Set on an avocado farm nearby is Earth Beer Company, a community-focused boutique brewery overlooking iconic Wollumbin (Mount Warning). We’ll take a tour of the rustic brewery and sample its tasty beers (with other options available for those who don’t enjoy beer) before heading to Husk Distillery just down the road. On a tour of this innovative rum and gin distillery, you’ll learn all about Husk’s Australia-first method of making rum from local sugar cane before trying its spirits for yourself. Set on a sugar cane farm with cracking views of Wollumbin and a gourmet cellar door menu, Husk is the ultimate destination for a long, lazy lunch. So that’s exactly what we’re going to be doing here before we drop you back to the Gold Coast by 5.30 pm.

Tamborine Mountain Wine & Dine


We hope you’re thirsty because today is all about good libations. Leaving the urban jungle of the Goldie behind at 9am, we’ll cruise up through the verdant green hills of the Gold Coast hinterland to Tamborine Mountain. A rainforest-covered escarpment formed by a 23 million-year-old lava flow, Tamborine Mountain is the gateway to the Scenic Rim – one of Australia’s most underrated wine regions. And you’ll be enjoying a tasting at three of its finest wineries on this gourmet day trip, topped off with a two-course lunch at Hampton Wines (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) or Mason Wines (Wednesday and Thursday). A visit to Witches Falls Winery – often ranked among Queensland’s best – is included on every tour. You’ll also get a chance to sample a selection of the artisanal spirits and liqueurs produced by Tamborine Mountain Distillery, a local icon that has won more than 300 awards for its quirky tipples – eucalyptus gum leaf vodka, anyone? And if you’re a sucker for a great view, you’ll love the spectacular Scenic Rim lookout we stop at before heading back to the city to drop you off by . Tamborine Wine & Dine is also available for groups from Brisbane.

Eat & Drink the Gold Coast


With pickups included within 30 kilometres of both Brisbane and Gold Coast CBDs, your first stop is an eye-opener. Set right beside Burleigh’s famous surf break, Rick Shores is one of Australia’s most sought-after places to eat, and you’re about to find out why. Drink in hand, settle in for a five-course Asian-Australian seafood banquet lunch. Moreton Bay Bug Rolls, duck curry and an idyllic beach backdrop? Kiff & Culture have you covered! If seafood isn’t your thing, no worries, Rick Shores has you sorted with other yummy dishes! Next stop: Granddad Jack’s Distillery. This unique core range of gins, paired with tonic water, are the perfect post-banquet digestive. The tasting includes a generous serving of three gin and tonic concoctions, all beautifully put together by Jack’s team. Choose the full-day option, and your last stop is Australia’s best-rated Craft Brewery, Balter. Their logo is a smiley face and it's easy to see why. Love IPA’s? Balter’s XPA beer has won over 20 international awards. Not a fan of beer? Try the sours, hazy ales or a host of other options. You won’t be disappointed – just well satisfied for your return trip.
