It takes a great team full of great people to make Mingara Recreation Club come to life! From the front of house to behind the scenes – it takes a great crew to keep us up and running.

Meet the team

Many people may not recognise Courtney but she is the real MVP of Indigo. Our resident kitchen hand/ cook, Courtney, makes sure the chefs have clean equipment for food preparation, plenty of plates to serve our delicious Indigo – Eats, Treats & Bar meals on during service, jumping in to the kitchen to lend a hand when its busy and then she stays back after everyone else has finished making sure the kitchen is back to working order for the next day! It’s a tough gig and we are lucky to have her in our team!!!!!
