In just over ten years, Tony Kelly's career has progressed from apprentice chef to Executive Chef and part owner of the Sunshine Coast's 2006 Restaurant of the Year, The Wine Bar Restaurant.
This stellar and well deserved rise can be attributed to hard work and determination with an abundant serving of sheer culinary talent.
Having completed his chef's apprenticeship at the Hyatt Regency Coolum, Tony's professional resume is infused with his work at a host of outstanding restaurants. Achieving many accolades and awards during the course of his career, Tony admits to preferring 'humble food', prepared with care using quality produce and served with little fuss.
Tony's love affair with food was nurtured from a young age by his grandmother, a simply amazing cook according to the man who now modestly and reluctantly has earned the title of one of the Sunshine Coast's celebrity chef. But the heady days of cooking food for the rich and famous in the United States, Caribbean, Bahamas and Australia's multi award winning Hayman Island simply stimulated Tony's appetite for greater food adventures.
With career carved by a number of key mentors and guided by a great sense of good taste, Tony is now living his dream at The Wine Bar Restaurant located at the gateway to Maroochydore's revitalised CBD precinct.
The Wine Bar opened to much acclaim in December 2004 and has gone from strength in the two and a half years following. Picking up a multitude of awards along the way, such as Restaurant & Catering "Best Modern Australian" Restaurant, "Best Fine Dinning" Restaurant, "Best Wine List" & over all "Restaurant of the Year"...

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
