The Backeddy Resort and Marina at Egmont is truly a jewel on the Sunshine Coast. I had the pleasure of dining at the restaurant Saturday night in the company of the miracle workers of Thank Dog I Am Out Rescue Society, who were staying at the resort for their AGM. We thoroughly enjoyed the best of the best: hospitality, food, service, vistas, and music: the fantastic Joe Stanton. Thanks to all.
