A cool breeze has brought a change to the Lyell Deer Sanctuary.

Taane and Wendy have joined the team, and invite you to the new ‘4 Winds Café’ – located at the Deer Sanctuary, offering great service and food only 10 mins from Samford .

The Lyell Deer Sanctuary remains as a beautiful place to visit and feed the deer, nestled in a tranquil corner of  the beautiful Samford Valley at the foothills of Mt Samson.  A natural wildlife sanctuary environment, surrounded by native bush and animals in their habitat, and enhanced by the presence of gentle deer 35 kms NW of Brisbane – only 10 mins from Samford.

The Lyell Deer Sanctuary is a popular destination for groups, adults and children alike, offering education, serenity, good food, crafts and a unique experience, and for many years has catered for the visitors in the tea rooms, under the stewardship and culinary skills of Maureen Pickstone.

It is time for Maureen to ‘retire’ and hand over the catering side of the Sanctuary gladly into the hands of Taane and Wendy.

Taane and Wendy embrace their indigenous relationship with the Kupidabin Wilderness – ‘a place of peace and harmony’ – at Lyell Ct, and have created a café environment  next door at the Lyell Deer Sanctuary where you can sit, ponder and enjoy – as the ‘Four Winds’ of Peace feed and soothe your soul.

The new name brings a fresh approach to the catering that will delight locals and travellers alike.

Between them they have many years of catering experience in a range of settings and offer you food to suit all tastes, great coffee, and excellent service.

You will be entertained by their stories of travel, indigenous music, storytelling, and unique hospitality.

Taane and Wendy have plans for some upcoming evening events – including a Summer Solstice Celebration Dinner on 20 December.
