The Waterline Restaurant


The Client

 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.
