All the latest news from the Curtain Fig Motel. Travel tips, places to go and food reviews, our blog is your guide to having a memorable stay in Yungaburra.
When Mark and I had renovations - major renovations - done in Fannie Bay (NT) I swore I would never do it again. Months of brick dust, upheaval and chaos, not to mention noise, early morning disturbance and sweaty workmen was something I never wanted to repeat. However, five months into our Queensland Adventure, here we are again. Some people never learn.
I have to say that the team that undertook to dig up the old concrete and create our outside entertaining area worked brilliantly together despite the fact that they had never done so before. And yes, it would have been better to get the shade awning fixed on BEFORE we had the solar panels put on the roof - but we got around that one without to much hassle. We had very patient clients during that time that actually did not demand their money back when they were awoken by the gentle(!) grinding of the cement mixer....
Both Mark and I love nothing more that seeing peoples faces light up when presented with good food. Mark has become the king of the breakfast tray (I just deliver the finished article).
We have decided that as an option for guests, we will offer the opportunity to share a home cooked meal. If Mark and I are having lamb shanks, for example, I will do extras so that guests can join us at the table. It makes up for family being so far away!!!!!
So, if the idea of dinner at the Curtain Fig, in convivial surroundings with a glass of wine - come on down!
