The Tipplers Team

We would like to introduce our executive chef Rebecca Gava. Rebecca completed a 4 year apprenticeship at Rockpool, trained by Executive Chef Neil Perry. Her talented love for cooking soon had her promoted to Sous Chef at Wockpool where she further developed her culinary skills working alongside Head Chef, Kylie Kwong.

She then moved to the Gold Coast and ran her own event catering business, designing menus and catering for Weddings, Parties and Corporate events for the past 14 years.

It was here on the Gold Coast she met her husband Scott and are raising their three children Lachlan, Claudia and Tyson. Scott is the manager of the bar and dining area, he enjoys a chat with our guests and ensures they are enjoying their experience at Tipplers Cafe. Scott, Rebecca and their children are very excited about their journey at South Stradbroke Island. Rebecca intends to use her passion for food and her high standard of training and experience she has to produce delicious, fresh meals in a family friendly atmosphere.

So come on over and drop an anchor, where else would you wallaby?
