Aussie Outback nurses to motels, coffee and kids

Megan Coombes and Mark Noonan don’t do things in half measures. They love a challenge – they’re professional multi-taskers. It’s just how they roll.

The two experienced Aussie Outback emergency nurses recently opened their Coffee Club Queenstown Central café, just weeks after Megan delivered the couple’s third child. All this on top of owning the Fairway Motel in Wanaka, which they bought in 2015, and commuting to Queenstown every day.

Church Lane, Queenstown

No.5 Church Lane

No5 is tucked away on Church Lane which gives it a chic secret-spot kind of feel. There are welcoming fire heaters and blankets outside which add to the first impression of a stylish and elegant location that is also relaxed and comfortable. As soon as you step through the doors you’ll notice the cosy fireplace separating the two dining areas and an extremely well stocked bar which promises great things for the drinks menu.
