With a market garden, orchard, mango trees and beehives to harvest from, ingredients are either grown onsite or sourced from producers who live just down the road. As a result, the menus are spontaneous and ever changing.

Homage accolades include two Chef Hats from the 2021 and 2020 Australian Good Food Guide and one Chef Hat from the 2019 Good Food Guide. In 2020 Homage was awarded ‘Best Fine Dining Restaurant’ in QLD’ in the QLD & NT Restaurant & Catering Hostplus Awards for Excellence.
