Matthias Beer has recently joined the Bamurru Plains team as Head Chef, to oversee the direction of its all-inclusive menu for guests.
Matthias began his culinary journey in Europe, where he worked at a variety of hotels in Switzerland and Germany. With more than 24 years in hospitality, German-born Matthias has led the kitchen at other Luxury Lodges of Australia, including El Questro Homestead in Kununurra in Western Australia, and Longitude 131 at Uluru in the Northern Territory.

A dedicated, passionate chef, Matthias enjoys using local, seasonal produce and bringing flavours
together from a wide range of culinary influences. He also enjoys working closely with local suppliers
to best showcase their food to an international audience.
At Bamurru Plains, Matthias’ creations might include paperbark-smoked Barramundi with a desert lime compote, or Kangaroo fillet seasoned with wattleseed and macadamia.
