Coming soon

Maiala Park Lodge is currently planning, preparing and applying for a food licence so that next time you come to stay you have the oportunity to dine in.

The offering will remind you of those wonderful homecooked dinners with your grandma, but with a modern and Australian twist by incorporating and highlighting bush foods as well as native herbs and spices.

If you are interested in being the first to hear when this is available, please sign up to our newsletter.

Catering and Picnics

When you are staying in such a beautiful location, why not head out and enjoy it! Many of the National Park day Use areas around the Lodge have BBQs and Picnic Tables. Why don’t you bring your own picnic food and borrow our picnic and bbq equipment to take with you to enjoy at the Maiala Day Use Area in the National Park or the Camp Mountain Outlook, looking over Brisbane CBD. Just reach out once you get to the lodge and we can provide you with whatever you need.

Side Note: Once we have our food license, you’ll also have the option of purchasing one of our ready to go picnic packages.

Other Local Establishments

We have four restaurants and cafes on the mountain. Because they are all demand driven, we recommend calling or checking their Facebook pages to ensure they are open:

These three are also great for meals or brunch, but they are a little further away and closer to Samford. There are also many other cafes and take away businesses in Samford – too many to list here:

Guests are also welcome to come prepared and cook at the lodge. The closest convenience store is in Samford at Drakes. Don’t forget to pick up your supplies on the way through.
