When we were at the RSL last night we notice that this part of club was closed. There was a notice saying they were going to reopen soon with a new dining experience, hope they bring back their full table service restaurant Aura.More

Aura brings together elegant surroundings, quality ingredients and creativity to present to you a dining environment unmatched in Caloundra. Located adjacent to Viva Restaurant in a quiet haven, the Aura staff will ensure you have a dining experience to remember. With a modern Australian a la carte menu and a wine list featuring the best of Australian and overseas wines, lunch at Aura may just turn into dinner. Your entree of Seared Scallops or perhaps Confit of Quail will set the scene for our signature dish of Karague Seafood or Blue Lagoon Tea Smoked Chicken.
