Our tribute Year has been well received, and Marksie is still perfecting the taste with some new Bush herbs this year, and organic vegetables and of course the best beef from our local Town and country Butcher.
We have 3 local school girls working striving for their Hospitality Certificates so we have a great night planned for you. See you soon.
We are off travelling, collecting bush tucker and checking out the Camp Oven Festival in Millmerran- QLD. Fantastic to see young people getting into Camp Oven cooking. We will be back ready to cook up a storm, next April, so get your bookings in.
Our New season will be based on a TRIBUTE to all CAMP OVEN COOKS young and old, around Australia, but of course, they will have the Marksie touch and your Damper and Stews will be out-of-this-world and a taste sensation. Hope to see you next year.

We have just have the lovely Justine Schofield "Everyday Gourmet" on Channel 10 come to film a cook with Marksie...on telly in October. Fantastic day , and I take my hat off...( that's not often) to the film crew and Justine. It takes hours to get a short snip of film to put on telly. Even managed to impress the Everyday gourmet with our 16th camp Oven Pavlova. By the way we are still no 1 in the TOP END thanks to all our amazing guests. We now have an Excellence Badge for 2018. Wahoo.
We had a group of Indonesia Cattlemen for our very first 1918 Stockman's Dinner in early May. Fantastic night though must say the stories were a mission with need of Interpreter. We did a special menu with explanations for each guest, translated into Indonesian to take away. An amazing night and lots of fun.
