A private 60th birthday lunch in our tower!

A very special birthday deserves an equally special treat, which is why 360Q owner Barry Iddles hosted a private lunch for the 60th birthday of guest Peter Osbourne in the wonderful observatory tower adjacent to the restaurant.

“It’s something I have wanted to do since we opened,” says Barry. “It has amazing views over Queenscliff Harbour, the township, the beach and The Rip – it’s magnificent.

“Lunch was fantastic even though it was a bit windy on the day – you can’t beat the views and having the whole space to yourself.”

Barry says the option of hiring the tower is always open to guests for intimate functions ideally of around 20 people.

Peter’s wife Donna was full of praise for the lunch.

“We had an absolutely wonderful delicious lunch, such service, Sophie, Matt and yourself so attentive,” she wrote in an email to Barry.

“The Tower was unbelievable, I loved it. The view was unbelievable a great backdrop for delicious food.”

The menu was curated especially for the guests and included:


Pork belly w smoked pineapple salsa

Scallops w apple waldorf

Nepalese momo w spicy yellow sesame sauce

Duck spring rolls w orange chili dipping sauce

Prawns w chili mojo


Creole Snapper fillets w Californian style avocado salsa

Main course

Smoked Rack of lamb w jus, vegetables & stone fruit chutney


Chips & wine


Ice cream parfait

Cheese w crackers

A duo of french cheeses w crackers & vanilla rhubarb jam
