Our catering team offer a range of food and beverage options to accommodate your needs and budget. With simplicity and comfort in mind, we endeavour to provide convenient catering solutions for your peace of mind. From self-catering to a full service, we also accept specific requests. If there was a meal that was significant to you or the deceased, we’ll do our very best to honour your wishes.
We appreciate that catering options may not be at the forefront of your mind, so don’t worry about giving us short notice. In the meantime, we will focus on taking into account any requirements of those with allergies, or people who may be travelling to the funeral.
Equipment Hire & Tailored Drink Packages
The grieving process can be emotionally and physically demanding. We understand that many people lose their appetite during this difficult time. However, it’s important to stay hydrated and keep your strength up to help you get through this painful chapter of your life. Our catering team will be available to provide you with simple, nourishing food for your home, church or at your venue of choice.
We cater for both small and large groups, so no matter the size of your funeral, our catering team can efficiently deliver throughout Mackay.

Frequently Asked Questions
It’s important to take into account the distance between the two locations, and whether people will need to find methods of transportation. In general, you should leave at least half an hour for guests to arrive at the wake. Whatever time you choose, our catering services will fit around this.
Within reason, a wake can last as long as you choose. In general, people tend to plan for two to three hours. We will also make sure to take into account the time it will take us to set up beforehand and clean up afterwards.
What you plan for after a funeral service is completely up to you. While it’s not necessary to provide a full meal after a service, it’s normally a nice idea to offer your guests some refreshments. We can take care of the catering, but some people also decide to let their family and friends contribute.
The drinks you choose to serve should depend on the atmosphere you are looking to create. Some people choose to maintain their funerals as a sombre occasion and may only choose to serve teas and coffees. Others prefer to acknowledge a funeral as a celebration of life, in which case they’ll serve alcohol such as beer, wine, and sometimes sherry. If you choose to serve alcohol, we’ll also stock plenty of soft drinks for those who are driving.
Your preferences are always the forefront of our service. If you require something that isn’t on our menu, we will do our best to get it for you. Our menus simply exist so that you have one less thing to think about, particularly if you’d prefer to have minimal input into the decisions.
