Food & Activities in Mary Valley

Food

At Mary Valley Views B+B we can provide a variety of food and beverage options during your stay. A full cooked breakfast is included in your tariff but what are you going to eat for dinner?  Well, imagine sitting back and relaxing on the veranda, a glass of wine or an icy cold beer in hand, while you're watching the last of the sun's rays and the evening colours wash over the Mary Valley spread out below.  

Start counting the stars as they emerge while Leanne and Les prepare and serve you a home cooked country-style meal from our daily fixed menu sourced from local fresh seasonal produce. Where possible we try to vary our fixed daily menu to suit guests' tastes or preferences. To ensure the freshest ingredients let us know when booking or within 24 hours of your arrival if you wish to dine in, have a menu preference or special dietary requirement. To start you thinking, click here for our MVV Daily Menu & Price List.

If you are touring the sights of the Mary Valley during your stay, we can provide a Picnic Hamper to take while  out exploring. Starting from $45.00 for two, everything you'll need for a picnic in your special location is included. Even a picnic rug to sit on.  

A selection of boutique wines and specialty beers or non-alcoholic beverages is available for sale. Click here for our MVV Daily Menu & Price List.

Food Provenance


Our Philosophy at Mary Valley Views B+B is to provide quality fresh ingredients in the food we serve to our guests. Just as important is supporting our local farmers and producers.
The "Provenance of our food tells where it comes from, its point of origin, where it is grown, raised or reared and by whom. 

In this region, many producers, providers and growers gather under the banner "Gympie Gold Regional Produce" supported by our regions food ambassador Chef - Matt Golinski. We too are proud to be members of Gympie Gold Regional Produce and support other members where possible.

Activities

For the not so adventurous, take the time to reconnect with your loved one or simply relax and enjoy time away from the hustle and bustle of your busy world.  At Mary Valley Views B+B there is an extensive library of books, magazines, CDs and DVDs you are welcome to enjoy during your stay.

Our compendium contains information on some of the wildlife species seen on the property including wallaby, echidna, kookaburra, magpie, butcherbird, king parrot, pale headed lorikeet and rosellas to name just a few.  

Why not just stare at the stars………… literally!  If you need one, an informative star chart could help you identify some constellations but when in the country, no one needs help finding the Milky Way.

When the weather is warmer, some of our visitors choose to lounge beside the in ground salt water swimming pool.  You are also welcome to wander around the property enjoying the rural views and the ever changing gardens.
