Looking to get away from the big smoke of the city but don’t want to drive too far? Canungra is the perfect place for you. Situated in the Gold Coast hinterland only 75KM from Brisbane, Canungra is a town full of history, a number of heritage-listed sites and home to the annual rodeo every July. Every town with history needs a pub filled with as much history. Welcome to the Canungra Hotel!

If you love a selection of Parmis then this place is a match made in heaven. With the section on the menu titled CHICKEN PARMY CONNOISSEUR COLLECTION, any meat, vegetable or sauce you can think of will be listed here.

The Parmi of choice for my visit…the Redback. Topped with Alfredo cheesy spaghetti, Napoli, eggplant, caramelised onion, pesto and cheese, the explosion of flavour with every bite was out of this world. A fresh garden salad and crispy beer battered chips accompanied this Parmi to perfection.

There is nothing more I can really say on paper but you need to head there right now and try it for yourself! You will not be disappointed.

Rating - 9.2/10 - With winter approaching, I can’t wait to head back to the Canungra Hotel to have a cold beer by the fire and work my way through the list of delicious Parmi’s.
