An array of pink and orange created a tropical themed wonderland at the 2017 Dreamtime breakfast held on 5 December at Southbank in the Courier Mail Piazza for 200 international guests.

Held every two years in a different Australian destination, the Dreamtime program consists of business to business sessions between Australian industry, and international incentive agents. Presented in partnership with the Brisbane Convention Bureau, Dreamtime 2017 took place from 3 to 6 December in Brisbane, Queensland followed by an educational destination visit for international buyers and media.

Wine & Dine’m Catering were engaged by Brisbane Marketing and Tourism Australia to cater the Dreamtime Breakfast, with a brief to create a menu with elements that were quintessentially Queensland: fresh, green, sustainable.  Inspired by Bougainvilleas and Poincianas the event was styled in pink and orange, to create a colourful, uplifting representation of the state and all it offers.

To complement the theme, Wine & Dine’m’s Executive Chef Lincoln Hoole designed a custom breakfast menu consisting of an omelette station, frozen yoghurt cart, steamed gyozas, house made granola and fruity refreshments. All ingredients were sourced locally and showcased Queensland’s best seasonal produce. Accompanied by espresso coffee and a selection of house brewed iced tea, the menu certainly impressed attendees and added to what turned out to be a hugely successful event!
