From curd to cheese
Our menus feature cheese platters filled with RQFWS Gold-medal winning cheeses. The RQFWS Cheese and Dairy Produce Show dates back to the very first Ekka in 1876.
King Island Dairy's Roaring Forties Blue
King Island is situated in the Bass Strait between Tasmania and Australia’s mainland.
The island’s unique climate of mineral rich soils, cool temperatures and consistent salt spray creates lush pastures for cattle to graze on. The salty grass also
produces unusually rich milk.
The milk used at King Island Dairy is sourced from just 10 farms in the area and delivered fresh daily for head cheese maker Ueli Berger.
Ueli is an award-winning cheese maker and a judge for the Ekka’s Student Made Cheese Competition.

The company is located on the Great Ocean Road near Warrnambool in Victoria and has been producing dairy products for almost 130 years.
Tasmanian Heidi Farm Tilsit
Heidi Farm’s Tilsit is produced in northern Tasmania, using milk from neighbouring farms.
The company’s journey started in 1986 and their cheeses are still hand crafted following traditional cheese making techniques.
From grape to glass
Royal ICC guests can raise their glass to Australia’s finest wines, with our menus featuring Royal Queensland Wine Show (RQWS) award-winning drops.
The RQWS is one of the nation’s oldest wine competitions, dating back to the very first Royal Queensland Show (Ekka) in 1876.
Our RQWS selection of almost 20 fine wines includes the Gold-medal Taylors Estate Shiraz from the Clare Valley in South Australia and Coldstream Hills Reserve Chardonnay from the Yarra Valley in Victoria which was named the 2018 Grand Champion Wine of Show.
