A Nurturing & Unique Experience Awaits You. 

Join us for 3 days and 2 nights at the beautiful Wild Mountains Environment Centre. Nestled away in the wilderness of the Gold Coast Hinterland, just 1.5 hours from the Gold Coast & Brisbane.

We welcome Terra Firma Dining who will be showcasing an event like no other.

Aligned with the Wild Mountains values, Terra Firma Dining will be creating a unique vegetarian dining experience using local produce cooked over a hot fire. It will be an epic visual dining experience under the stars.

In addition to cooking on the fire, we will also welcome special guests, local Aboriginal Elders who will be sharing dream time stories around the campfire. The weekend is not just about cooking on the fire, but also about how we can connect with our food. It will also include a cooking lesson with Charly and the opportunity to meet likeminded people in a natural rustic setting, connecting with one another and immersing in a sustainable way of life. 

Accommodation options include a 2 night stay in either a 4 person elevated a-frame tent, or twin share room or double bed private room in the wooden cabin.

The 'Wild Mountains' facilities are set in beautiful native bush land. They are leading an

example of a harmonious lifestyle with the earth. With various sleeping arrangements, hot showers and composting toilets available. See below for pricing and details. 

Wild Mountains Nature Walk

 At Wild Mountains they attempt to be role models for a more harmonious lifestyle with the Earth. Recycling and organic food production as well as solar power, water collection, composting toilets and appropriate building materials reflect a commitment to a earth centered lifestyle. 

We will walk around the property, enjoying both the rainforest and dry bushland aspects, understanding the harmony between us, this place and the natural world.

The hike is an easy to medium hike and is the perfect chance to surrender to the nature that surrounds you. Your accomplishment will be reaching the picnic spot that awaits with a delicious lunch made by Charly.

Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony 

We are honoured to welcome five local Aboriginal Elders of the

Yugumbeh people from the Beaudesert region to our event.

They will open the evening with a Welcome to Country and Smoking Ceremony and share their stories of the dream time with us as we sit in reverence around the campfire. This is sure to be a highlight of the event.

Vegetarian Dining with Terra Firma Dining

The weekend is centered around an authentic experience around the woodfire with Charly from Terra Firma Dining and will include a cooking class.


All meals will be provided for your stay with us. Including tea and coffee, snacks, breakfast, lunch and dinner. In keeping with the Wild Mountains

culture, all meals prepared and served will be vegetarian cooked on the open fire. 

What Is Terra Firma Dinning?

Perfect for weddings, celebrations, corporate events and brand activations.  

Your guests will be treated to an open fire pit installation with delicious local produce slowly roasting over the hot coals. This humble style of dining embraces back to basic cooking techniques, using only fire and the best local ingredients. 

But this is more than just your average barbecue. Your menu will push the boundaries of what you thought was possible to cook with just an open flame. 


The combination of the delicious aromas and the ability to interact with the Chefs at work make for an unforgettable show. 

At the heart of every dining concept is the incredible produce of the Sunshine Coast with seasonal menus and fresh ingredients sourced directly from local suppliers. 

What better way to put the wow factor in your next event than allowing two award winning chefs to create your perfect dining experience. 

Terra Firma Dining is based on the beautiful Sunshine Coast and is able to service events from Byron Bay to Bundaberg.

Meet our Chef Charly
Join us our very first adventure cooking experience on the campfire that is exclusively vegetarian!

Charly's love of good produce bought him to the Sunshine Coast a year ago where he started TERRA FIRMA DINING: a unique dining experience very inspired by the South American barbecue culture: Asado, where they cooked all proteins and vegetables hanging over the open fire.

For Charly cooking over the open fire is all about gathering your guests around the fire pit in the beautiful Australian outdoors, and enjoy delicious locally sourced produce slowly cooked over the flame.

Having spent his childhood fishing, hunting, riding horses, growing organic veggies with his Grandfather and cooking with his Mum on the family property on the West Coast of France, his relationship with the great outdoors was set from a very young age.

Chef Charly has always been passionate about nature, he knew his life would revolve around good food, fresh produce, great outdoors and cooking over fire.
