Heart of the Redlands pub reveals a huge new beer garden & kids’ playground, new-look bar & bistro, and rippin’ roast chook menu
One of the Redlands’ most popular pubs, Koala Tavern re-opened last week after undergoing a major $3 million transformation for the local community. The venue will celebrate its re-opening later this month with a jam-packed Welcome Weekend, which features a live Koala Handler Show in partnership with D’Aguilar Wildlife.
Koala Tavern is excited to welcome Capalaba locals to experience the fully-transformed venue, which features a revitalised family-friendly bistro, entertainment-focused public bar and gaming room.
The revamped pub boasts an expansive new beer garden which is perfect for alfresco drinks and dining during summer. What’s more, the beer garden has an adjoining kids’ play area, meaning adults can keep an eye on the little ones whilst catching up with friends and family over a delicious pub meal.
Diners looking to book in for lunch or dinner will love Koala Tavern’s new-look bistro menu, which offers a modern take on classic Australian pub food such as schnitzels, salads, burgers and steaks. The pub is further paying homage to an Australian family favourite – a rippin’ roast chook, serving up signature dishes like Hot Chook Rolls and Rotisserie Chicken with sides.
The public bar is set to be the go-to destination for entertainment – hosting local bands, touring acts, and showing the best sporting events live and loud on the big screens.
Capalaba residents can expect a full weekly calendar at Koala Tavern with Tuesday Trivia, Thursday ‘Blues and Brews’ and live music every Friday – Sunday.
To celebrate the reopening of the popular local, Koala Tavern will be hosting a welcome weekend from 25th – 27th November for locals to come down and check out the exciting new spaces.

Venue Manager, Nicki Lawrence, is thrilled to soon be welcoming Capalaba locals back to the newly-revamped venue.
“The Koala Tavern is an iconic venue in Capalaba and one that the community holds close to their heart. We’re so overjoyed that we can now pay it forward to the community that has supported us over the years, giving people of all ages an exciting space to socialise, be entertained and enjoy a good feed”
The Koala Tavern will further give back to the local community by supporting sporting partner, Muddies Cricket Club and Local Heroes charity partner, Save The Koala. The Local Heroes program will see $1 from the sale of every Parma every Wednesday donated through the weekly fundraising promotion.
Food and beverage led hospitality operator Australian Venue Co has been investing heavily in revitalising the Queensland pub landscape, with Koala Tavern joining the growing list of completed renovation projects including Coomera Lodge, Cleveland Sands Hotel, The Crown Hotel in Lutwyche, Bribie Island Hotel, Boomerang Hotel in Mackay, Kings Beach Hotel in Caloundra, Beenleigh Tavern in Logan and The Wallaby Hotel in Mudgeeraba.
