The Waterline Restaurant

RESTAURANT IN THE KEPPEL BAY MARINA, YEPPOON

The Client

From humble beginnings, opening as Waterline Café, a coffee and sandwich bar in the corner of the new Keppel Bay Marina building in 1996, The Waterline Restaurant as it is known today has forged a reputation for the best quality food and friendliest service on the coast.  Open from 7 am daily for all day dining, and from 6pm until late Wednesday to Sunday. Winner of the 2018 Queensland Tourism Restaurant of the year, the Waterline’s menus showcase the best local beef, seafood and produce.

With spectacular views and exceptional service The Waterline Restaurant is the perfect place to host your special occasion. Catering for both small and large functions including birthday parties, christenings, engagement parties and high teas.

You will find the Waterline Restaurant inside the Keppel Bay Marina at: 
Waterline Way Rosslyn Bay, Yeppoon QLD 4703

 

 The Suburb 

Protected from the elements behind an enormous volcanic outcrop, Rosslyn Bay is just seven minutes’ drive south of Yeppoon on the beautiful Southern Great Barrier Reef. The steep volcanic outcrop that shelters the bay was formed over 70 million years ago and is one of the most fascinating geological formations in the area. A short, but vigorous walk to the summit reveals magnificent views of the Keppel Islands, the surrounding coastline and volcanic formations.

Rosslyn Bay Harbour is a hive of activity with ferries regularly departing for Great Keppel Island, along with Keppel Bay cruises, bareboat charters and recreational fishing cruises. Local fishing trawlers also make use of the harbour, returning with freshly caught reef fish, prawns, bugs and mud crabs.

North Queensland’s largest marina, Keppel Bay Marina, is also located at Rosslyn Bay, boasting 400 berths. Enjoy a scrumptious lunch at the The Waterline Restaurant as you look out over the cool blue waters of the Pacific Ocean.

What We Did

As a venue with primarily alfresco dining, Nextrend provided seating that would be perfect for outdoor use, ready to withstand what mother nature may throw at it.  For the diners looking to enjoy the shade of the deck area of the Restaurant white dolce armchairs were selected.  Produced with a single injection mould of polypropylene plus further reinforcing the material with glass fibre and packed with UV stabiliser, the Dolce Armchair offers excellent durability and strength and will not go brittle or fade in colour. The aluminium legs have been anodised so they will not rust even when used in coastal areas.  The Festival Chair was then selected as their function chair.  Proudly Australian made the Festival Chair is lightweight, hard wearing and affordable.  This chair weighs only 2 kg and has a certified SWL of 180kg and can be stacked 20 high.

Jolt Bakery Cafe

CAFE IN ROCKHAMPTON

The Client

Like the Parkhurst Store, Jolt Bakery Cafe “Post Office” is a gourmet coffee bar, that boasts a fun, relaxed atmosphere for its customers, this is all achieved by using high quality ingredients.  Reading through the reviews on this store, it appears to be the place to go in Rockhampton for Breakfast, with plenty of 5 star reviews.  On our visit we found the staff to be friendly and welcoming, as were the birds that hung around outside, photobombing several images.

You will find Jolt Bakery Cafe at:  
Post Office, 80 East Street, Rockhampton, QLD 4700

The Suburb

Rockhampton is one of the oldest cities in Queensland. In 1853, Charles and William Archer discovered the Fitzroy River, which they named in honour of Sir Charles Fitzroy. The Archer brothers took up a run near Gracemere in 1855, and more settlers arrived soon after, enticed by the fertile valleys. The town of Rockhampton was proclaimed in 1858, and surveyed by Arthur F Wood and Francis Clarke, the chosen street design closely resembled the Hoddle Grid in Melbourne and consisted of a grid of wide boulevards and laneways, which was uncommon in Queensland.

Today, Rockhampton is an industrial and agricultural centre of the north, and is the regional centre of Central Queensland. Rockhampton is also a large tourist destination known for its history and culture supporting such institutions as the Rockhampton Art Gallery, one of the most extensive regional galleries in Australia, the Central Queensland University with campuses across five states, the Rockhampton Heritage Village, and Dreamtime Cultural Centre.

The city is served by the Rockhampton Airport and acts as a gateway to local tourist locations such as the Capricorn Caves and Mount Archer National Park, as well as regional tourist areas such as Yeppoon and the Capricorn Coast.

What We Did

Formerly Degani’s, Nextrend has been supplying furniture for this location since 2013.  With Jolt Bakery Cafe, we supplied Duratops in Marble for use throughout the exterior of the cafe and wenge for the interior.  The table tops sit on Blitz Bases and are paired with Dolce Armchairs.  The alfresco dining area also contains a couple of bar height tables which are paired with Gio Barstools.

PARKHURST BAKERY

The Client

Jolt Cafe is a gourmet coffee bar, that boasts a fun, relaxed atmosphere for its customers, this is all achieved by using high quality ingredients.  Talking from personal experience, the food at Jolt is amazing.  If you are in the area and like real chunky steak pies, Jolt Bakery Cafe is a must. Looking at their Facebook reviews, it is not only their pies that are exceptional, with 5 star reviews for their coffee, breakfasts and other meals. If you are in Rockhampton or passing through, this is one destination that is well worth a visit.

You will find Jolt Bakery Cafe at:  Parkhurst Town Centre, Parkhurst, Queensland, Australia

 

 The Suburb 

Parkhurst is bounded to the north by Ramsay Creek and to the west by Ramsay Creek and then the Fitzroy River. To the south it is bounded by Limestone Creek (the creek, not the suburb) and by Yeppoon Road.

A section of the Bruce Highway passes through the centre of the suburb from south to north, while the North Coast railway line also passes through the suburb from south to north, to the west of the highway.

The Parkhurst Industrial Estate is in the south-west of the suburb, while the residential land is in the west near the river and in the north-east of the suburb. Most of Parkhurst remains farmland, but Rockhampton’s urban sprawl has led to further residential developments being established throughout Parkhurst including the Northridge, Rosedale, Paramount Park, Riverside and Edenbrook estates.

The increasing population at Parkhurst and in areas further north such as Rockyview and Glendale has led to the construction of the Parkhurst Town Centre, a new shopping centre anchored by a Woolworths supermarket. Construction of the centre commenced in August 2015. Woolworths was the first store in open in the centre on 15 November 2016.

What We Did

With the opening of the new store at Parkhurst, Nextrend Furniture was engaged to supply furniture for their Alfresco and Food Court dining areas.  Opting for Dolce Armchairs and Gio Barstools for seating, these products are made for enduring the elements of these areas.  Hard wearing uv stabilised polypropylene, matched with anodised aluminium legs provides a product that is made to withstand the harsh Australian sun, and will not rust or fade.  To match the chairs Gentas Rustic Blockwood Table Tops were placed on a combination of Black Astoria Bases and Blitz Folding Bar Table Bases.

The Suburb 

Yeppoon is a coastal town and locality in the Shire of Livingstone, Central Queensland, Australia. Yeppoon is renowned for its beaches, tropical climate, and the islands out on the bay. Twenty-five minutes from the city of Rockhampton, Yeppoon is the principal town on the Capricorn Coast, a string of seaside communities stretching more than 150 kilometres (93 mi) from north to south. The beaches and shallow coves provide a destination both for tourists and miners settling down in Central Queensland. Offshore, there are 27 islands including Great Keppel Island which is 20 kilometres (12 mi) from Yeppoon.

What We Did

In 2014 Nextrend Furniture was asked to supply the Fiji Sunloungers for the pool area.  These sun loungers were to match the existing Siesta Furniture that was installed at the completion of the complex in late 2013.  Although the other Siesta Resin Rattan Furniture (except the odd Bali Table) was not sold to this development by Nextrend, we have decided to show you images of how well this furniture has held up after over 5 years of use.  All of this furniture is available from Nextrend, and we have listed the items below.

YEPPOON RESORT ACCOMMODATION

The Client

Cento per cento is a brand new Italian Restaurant overlooking the waters of Bondi.  Serving authentic Italian cuisine, this restaurant is already starting to build a reputation for having some of the best pizza’s around.  Specialising in Pizza & Pasta, if you love Italian food, Cento per cento is well worth a visit when you are in Bondi.

 The Suburb 

Lammermoor is nestled against the Pacific Ocean overlooking Keppel Bay, and is centrally located on the Capricorn Coast, five kilometres (3.1 mi) south of Yeppoon, and 16 kilometres (9.9 mi) north of Emu Park.  Often regarded as a suburb of Yeppoon, Lammermoor is in fact a separate locality like its neighbouring suburb Taranganba.  The Scenic Highway is the main drive for locals and tourists which is passes along the beach of Lammermoor.

What We Did

To provide comfort by the pool and for the recreation room, Nextrend Furniture provided Fiji Sun loungers, Orlando Tables, Ibiza Armchairs and Jamaica Stools.  The resin rattan furniture used in this project was used to compliment the tropical feel of the environment in which it was placed.
