"Finally, a high tea done right!! Invited yesterday on the Kookaburra River Queens new high tea. Two hours of bubbly, immaculate petite fours, ribbon sandwiches, mini rolls and savories. All the while cruising up and down the Brisbane river on an old fashioned paddle wheeler. The rest of Brisbane high teas has some serious competition in this arena now!!"
