Chief Operating Officer Craig Ellison, from Australian Venue Co which operates Bribie Island Hotel, said the renovations aimed to showcase Bribie’s “island charm”.

“Bribie Island is a very special place, so we want to reflect that casual island charm, while offering locals the best experience with modern design, new activities and fresh food and drinks menus.” he said.

“We really listen to our locals. At the start of the renovation we did a customer survey to inform the changes we’d make.

“We invited a group of local residents and business owners in for dinner to preview the menu and get their feedback.

“It’s important to us to make sure we’ve built what the community want.”
