Black Sheep Bistro - Oxenford. Another chef owner restaurant with great pedigree. The wine list is very limited though so we suggest you BYO wine if you are into the fruits of the grape!

Willow Vale, Queensland, Australia

Our valley is a hidden gem, there are country walks, cows and horses in fields and ducks on the creek that criss crosses the valley.
There is an excellent a la carte restaurant within 5 mien drive through the valley and a modern day spa within the same distance.
We are only 10 mins drive from the theme parks if that is your thing, 20 mins drive to the nearest of the Gold Coasts amazing beaches and 35 mins drive to Brisbane.
If you are into serious bush walking, Mt Tambourine, Springbrook, O'Reilly's and Binnaburra are all within a fairly short driving distance.
Check out the Night Markets at Helensvale for some great street food every Friday and Saturday night - just a 10 min drive away.
There is great golf at Sanctuary Cove (12 mins drive), Hope Island (10 mins drive)and Gainsborough Greens (5 mins drive)

My favourite destinations are: Big bustling multi cultural cities Anywhere high with lots of powdery snow Anywhere in the remoter parts of the Mediterranean The deck overlooking our valley in the early morning and late afternoon with a glass of something cold and crisp in the summer and deep red in the winter. My favourite food right now is the pasta I made last night with my family - all the ingredients except the OO Italian flour from our garden. Tomorrow it will be the slow cooked lamb wafting cinnamon, rosemary and red wine through the house.
