Dining is a very relaxed affair at Mt Mulligan Lodge. All meals are included and are served in the main lodge at times to suit guests. The ambitious chef showcases local produce and outback flavours in a daring and imaginative way. It's not uncommon to see dishes such as kangaroo tataki with miso cream or red claw (caught on the property) with roasted garlic and macademia crumb on the menu. If you're planning to go exploring for the day, a gourmet picnic can be prepared to enjoy whilst out and about. The aptly named and delightfully rustic Sunset Bar with it’s bare wooden counters and corrugated iron is a stone’s throw from the main lodge and is the perfect place to watch the sun go down over the eucalyptus trees with majestic views of the rugged mountain ranges beyond. Definitely a moment to take it all in, drink in hand and camera at the ready to capture the scene bathed in soft, golden light.
