There’s no doubt mums are amazing and they play such an important role in our lives. So show her how much you really care this Mother’s Day by taking her to an event that she’ll remember for years to come. We’ve rounded up some of the best high teas, breakfasts, and lunches in Brisbane that are guaranteed to make her day (and you the favourite child).

QT Hotel | Gold Coast

Why just celebrate mum for one day? Whisk mum away to the Gold Coast for a relaxing weekend by the beach filled with plenty of special food and spa experiences at QT Hotel. To help you shower mum in a little extra love this weekend, the quirky Miami Beach-inspired coastal haven is hosting a series of breakfast, brunch, dinner and high tea sittings at the Bazaar Marketplace and Fixx Café – we’re sure you both won’t be able to resist what’s on offer!

Following a complimentary Bellini and gift for mum on arrival, you will both be treated to an inventive and flavourful High Tea experience. From tomato bread topped with smoked salmon and dill crème fraîche to sweeter flavours of polenta and orange cake with lavender syrup and Earl Grey pear and caramel slice, this High Tea will impress mum. High Tea sittings will be taking place at 11am, 1pm and 3pm this Sunday. Secure your place here.


Ovolo Inchcolm Hotel | Spring Hill

Also playing host this Mother’s Day is the edgy boutique Ovolo Inchcolm Hotel in Spring Hill. So, put down the apron and get set to enjoy a relaxing five-course lunch with mum at Ovolo’s Salon de Co Restaurant!

With dishes like Spanner Crab with Pickled Melon and Macadamia or the Heirloom Beetroot Tartare with Stracciatella and Liquorice, we’re sure you’ll have a hard time deciding! Imaginative food isn’t the only thing on offer at Ovolo this year either. To make mum’s day extra special, she will also receive her very own cocktail (named after her!) alongside a personalised gift. As they say, it’s all about the details.
