Meet Head Chef Rosco Deacon

Joining the team in February 2021, Head Chef Rosco Deacon brings a wealth of hospitality experience to the Maraboon having worked at The Vue in Darwin's Mindil Beach Casino Resort, Clarion Hotel Mackay Marina and on Long Island located in the picturesque Whitsundays.


After spending time travelling and working around Australia, Rosco stumbled upon the town of Emerald and our beloved Maraboon Tavern. The venue's strong reputation amongst locals was a big draw card, with the in-house smoker also playing a vital role in his decision to join the team as Head Chef.

We are excited to be able to share not only share his food, but a delightful culinary experience with you too. To view the current menu, visit our Food & Drinks page or book a table now by phoning (07) 4982 0999.
