About Us

The Cowrie is dedicated to the ongoing support and growth of developing our menus strictly based on locally sourced and seasonally driven produce. This is also correlated with engagement within our local community, working together with local growers developing Australian honey, citrus, native herbs/spices and sustainable seafood. Our mission is to consistently build our connections with these passionate growers and bring that quality of product to the dining experience at the restaurant.
