Our People


Managing Director

History: I was born and raised in Ayr and am a proud Burdekin boy. Growing up in a sugar cane farming community, doing what all kids do – fishing,  four-wheelers, motorbikes, water sports and played every sport under the sun from soccer to basketball, cricket, football and everything in between. 



What started as just a thought after visiting a few cool lifestyle venues in LA and Shanghai, I had some meetings on the Gold Coast and decided that I wanted to bring a lifestyle venue to Townsville with coastal views and a beachside vibe.


The philosophy behind Anelay was to build a relaxing coastal environment, capitlise on the million-dollar views, create a unique vibe and build a space for all to relax and unwind in while enjoying tasty snacks and indulgent beverages, coffee, gelato and much more.


We open daily at 6am for coffee, gelato from 10am and cabinet treats 7 days with the kitchen serving breakfast from 7am Wednesday – Sunday. We are open till late daily and are a coastal pub vibe Monday & Tuesday evenings. Wednesday – Sunday are our main days with our kitchen open from 12 noon to 830pm daily serving up all your favourites. We look forward to seeing you soon.
