"Far from the City Lights"

Yandina is a sweet little town the Sunshine Coast hinterland not far from Nambour. It's main fame for the last million years (or at least it feels like it) has been the resident Ginger factory. Still operating, tourists can pop in and take a train trip around the attraction and learn all about the history of ginger production in QLD. There is a special attraction in Yandina that I particularly love ans that's the Spirit House restaurant and cooking school. With a unique attitude to food and a reverence for the organic principles way before it was 'Jamie Oliver' trendy, it has an asian theme, but with a modern australian twist. It offers all kinds of classes about cooking and even helps you harvest fresh ingredients on the premises. Yandina is still a quiet little rural town, but it's close enough to the Sunny Coast for some waves and shopping, but far enough away to appreciate the city lights.
