The Kooroomba Vision
Kooroomba has been created as a unique tourist destination, nestled in the Fassifern Valley at Mt Alford near Boonah, about 60 minutes from Brisbane and 1hr 30 minutes from the Gold Coast.
The property consists of a cellar door, restaurant and lavender shop which overlooks a six hectare vineyard and a breathtaking lavender fields, with magnificent views of the Scenic Rim mountains. Kooroomba Vineyard and Lavender Farm provides a southern France experience on the doorstep of Brisbane and is the perfect setting for a relaxing day away.
The award winning cellar door/restaurant complex is of a 5 star level and is a blend of rustic and contemporary architecture.
Our selection of wines, along with the Modern Australian cuisine served in the restaurant from local produce, provides a unique regional wine and food experience. Kooroomba has a large variety of wines including Chardonnay, Shiraz, Cabernet, Sauvignon Blanc and a Sparkling Chardonnay Pinot Noir.
The lavender fields have a number of varieties of French and Italian lavender designed to provide flower most of the year.
Kooroomba is a unique destination right on the door step of Brisbane and the Gold Coast, making it a magical place for visitors to come, see and experience one of the Scenic Rim's most popular tourist attractions.
Where else in Australia can you come to both: a Lavender Farm and Winery while enjoying a beautiful lunch with over spectacular views of the
our lavender fields and the Great Dividing Range?

Head Chef Elliot Platz
‘Cooking is at a glance the simplest and most gratifying of the arts, but to cook well one must love and respect food’.
Elliot Platz was born and raised in the Scenic Rim on a small family farm just outside of Harrisville.
He completed his primary and secondary schooling in Boonah before taking a position as a Farm Hand growing and cultivating produce in the local area.
Realising his passion for food, Elliot embarked on a culinary journey, where he has worked with some of the states best producers and chefs. Notably with Homage Restaurant under the Spicers Group and Blume Restaurant in Boonah before taking the leap to Kooroomba Winery.
His approach to food is to be adventurous, bring a sense of nostalgia and to be as minimal as possible, letting the produce in the region speak for itself.
