Thank you for being patient. Like everyone else we have been slowed down by COVID, the floods, the flu and the restaurant closures. We are now getting out and about. Remember, we only post places we have visited and think are worth visiting….

Worth a Detour is all about great food experiences.

Today a meal is more than just the food – it is the total experience. Our aim is to find great places to visit, with food that we like, and great food and wine experiences that you can share with your companions**.

We are not critics. We simply highlight and recommend places worth visiting. We were tired of being served mediocre food and service with an attitude – so we set out to find those great little places that serve good food, with friendly service and fabulous atmosphere.

If a venue is on our site – it is worth seeking out – it is Worth a Detour.

Worth a Detour is a dynamic work-in-progress. We have many places yet to explore. So please join with us and share the detours…


**Note: **

The word Companion comes from the latin “com” and “panis” – meaning “with bread”. Someone with whom you share bread. Someone with whom you travel, dine and spend time with. A true friend.

What's new?

Due to COVID, the floods and other distractions, we have not been very active. But we are now back seeking those special places and hope to cover more of Australia in the comings months.

Take a look at my blog page for some comments on hospitality…
