A delicious feast of local produce is waiting for you at Brisbane Airport International Terminal.

Once upon a time airport food consisted of a dry burger and a lukewarm coffee, but times they are a changing.

Brisbane Airport International Terminal has unveiled a range of delicious dining options packed with locally sourced produce so tasty that you’ll find yourself booking a ticket just so
you can have seconds.

Brisbane River Grill is an airport eatery whose décor and menu showcase Brisbane’s diverse history and landscape.

From seafood plucked straight from Queensland’s beautiful oceans and beef hailing from Rangeland Darling Downs, the menu is designed to showcase our state’s best produce.

Emirates Leisure Retail Executive Chef and Development Manager Peter Reffell said he and his team have worked tirelessly to ensure the best of Brisbane winds up on visitor’s plates.

“A lot of time has gone into researching this menu and finding these suppliers,” he said.

“I would say 80 per cent of the produce we have here is from this state. We only use quality products that our suppliers have pride in.

“We’re all about good ingredients cooked really well. There’s nothing on the menu you wouldn’t recognise.”

On the Brisbane River Grill menu you’ll find free range eggs from the Glass House Mountains, cheese from Woombye, a selection of wines from Sirromet Wines and delicious selection of bread and pastries, baked fresh each day from Le Bon Choix Bakery in Brisbane.

The venue offers an all-day breakfast, small share plates for people who are looking for a tasty nibble before boarding and a mouthwatering selection of salads and pastas.

There are even gluten free and vegetarian options to ensure that every family member can fill their tummy before boarding a flight.

If you’re in need of a caffeine hit or a tasty treat after making it through security, Windmill & Co are waiting in the departures lounge with some of Brisbane’s finest local produce.

The business sourced their name from The Old Windmill in Spring Hill, a heritage-listed tower located in Wickham Park.

The team have worked closely with local fruit and vegetable companies to ensure their menu is made up 100 per cent Queensland.

Their company ethos centres on educating customers about Brisbane’s rich heritage while also serving up delicious fare.

They work closely with Newstead Brewing Co to serve their guests a range of locally brewed beers and ciders and even have their own lager on tap.

A winning item on the menu is their Maple Muesli, which is made on the Sunshine Coast and packed with nutritious and delicious ingredients such as coconut flakes, almonds, macadamias, hazelnuts, organic apricots, sultanas and cranberries.

High flyers can also pop into the Australian Produce Store, where there is a Queensland Wall showcasing a range of products that have been lovingly produced in the sunshine state.

It’s safe to say that the holiday starts when you step inside Brisbane Airport International Terminal , where the food is as local as it is delicious.
