A New Season at Flaxton Gardens

Ten Year Anniversary in 2019

Flaxton Gardens will be marking their Ten Year Anniversary of opening as a Sunshine Coast Hinterland Wedding Venue under the ownership and management of Alan Thompson in September 2019. This milestone will be marking a new season at Flaxton Gardens including an inspired new restaurant menu, an experienced team, a fresh makeover for our Winery and more options for weddings at the popular Hinterland venue.

New Menu and Experienced Team

Under the inspirational lead and watchful eyes of our Owner and Executive Chef, Alan Thompson, and new Head Chef, Scott Darlow, the Flaxton Gardens Team have produced an amazing array of mouth-watering dishes for their new menu, inspired by locally sourced ingredients and Flaxton Gardens’ own fresh garden vegetables. Scott brings his experience to Flaxton Gardens following his years working throughout England in Michelin restaurants, Europe and back home in Western Australia. Scott loves to create seasonally inspired fresh, light and enjoyable food. There is something for everyone on this new menu.


As a starter, the Cured Tasmanian Salmon with Fennel, Radish & Pink Peppercorn Dressing, or the Sweetcorn & Manchego Cheese Fritters with Capsicum Jam & Avocado Crème Fraiche are perfectly light options.


For the main course, the flavoursome Organic Chicken Breast with Wild Mushrooms, Peas & Creamy Mash to the Sautéed Homemade Gnocchi with Beetroot & Celeriac with freshly picked leaves from their Gardens. If you prefer a hearty home-style meal, the Slow Braised New England Lamb Shoulder with Crushed Peas & Fondant Potato, or the Chargrilled Rump served with Fries, Grilled Field Mushroom, Homemade Slaw and Choice of Sauce will be sure to please.


The dessert lovers haven’t been forgotten either, with the amazing Camel Milk Cake with Lemon Curd, delicate Meringue & Pineapple Jam, and the Flaxton Affogato with a shot of Frangelico, Award-winning Maleny Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and a Fresh Coffee shot, it is the perfect adult Milkshake! Chocolate lovers will be spellbound by their popular FG’s Death By Chocolate, and the Chef’s signature Hot Raspberry Soufflé with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream remains a favourite on the menu.

Perfect for Weddings and Other Celebrations

Nestled between the popular Sunshine Coast Hinterland townships of Maleny, Montville and Mapleton, with coastal views stretching from Noosa to Moreton Island, Flaxton Gardens is the ideal location for celebrations of all occasions.

Flaxton Gardens is well known as a gorgeous wedding venue with a variety of ceremony and reception options. A recent makeover of the Winery which can seat up to 160 wedding guests will allow future brides and grooms to create their own dream wedding. Whether it be a rustic Tuscan theme, a Vintage style, or a classic Modern theme, there is a range of options to suit everyone.
