A day out at Victoria Park
Victoria Park’s Putt Putt seems to be one of the most talked about and challenging courses in Brisbane, and so myself and a couple of friends of mine had to go and check it out…
Located just 2km away from Brisbane CBD, and easily accessible via public transport, the 18-hole mini golf course not only includes rockeries and water-features that challenge even the most experienced players, but also hosts a superb skyline view of Brisbane City. When we arrived, the place was busy, considering it was quite a cloudy day, and people were enjoying all aspects of Victoria Park’s offerings.
So, we picked up our putters and headed straight to the course with our scorecard at the ready. Thinking it would start off easy we were confronted with a swinging log obstacle on our first hole…needless to say I soon discovered my talent, or lack there of, for the game. My friends were the same; although to be honest it made the game even more entertaining, with our final scores after the first 9 holes coming in at a whopping 37 for Adrian, and 38 for Freya and myself.
For lunch, we tried out the Victoria Park Bistro, with its range of mouth-watering meals from a seasonal menu. With the newly launched menu advertising some really healthy options, Freya and I decided to share the two vegetarian meals, which were full of flavour and absolutely delicious! The roasted beetroot salad was almost too beautiful to eat, with its generous dollops of creamy goat’s curd goodness, balsamic onion, seeded wafers, and sprinkled mixed leaves. Although it was the winner of the day, Adrian’s market fish was also loved, brimming with fresh, zesty flavours.
Victoria Park’s offerings were impressive, and with its attentive staff, relaxed atmosphere, and gorgeous fresh food, we will be back soon.
