Paradise Resort Gold Coast | Surfers Paradise

When they attempt to knock you down, don't get mad...you show up and show out! That’s exactly what Paradise Resort, Gold Coast’s leading family-friendly holiday destination, is here to do. With new renovations in plan, the Coast's already favourite family resort will be elevated to new heights. Think more modernised. More facilities. And more heart. Expect enhanced guestrooms, a movie cinema and a full-sized game room. For all the mums and dads out there, get ready to relax with a beer and burger in hand at the new bar (Sorry kids, Adults Only zone!). A major charity event was held this past weekend to celebrate new resort owner Dr. Jerry Schwartz and the new vision for Gold Coast’s beloved family getaway. Over 20 charities including Brave Hearts, Baby Give Back and Guide Dogs collectively raised almost $180,000 through donations. Wow! We can definitely say the night of the event was one for the books and has only heightened our excitement for Paradise Resort’s upgrade even further!

Gold Coast Laughs Festival Gala | HOTA

Keep your calendar clear for at least one night between March 14th – 21st to laugh your heart out at Gold Coast’s biggest comedy showcase! It’s back for its 2nd year with award-winning comedian Denise Scott as your lovely host for the evening. GC’s Laughs Festival Gala will have your stomach aching, your mouths hurting and eyes watering- this sounds like mad torture but trust us, it's the best kind! Look forward to a night full of howling laughter with your favourite hilarious comedy stars and local comedic talent! If you can spare a night free, why not spend it at HOTA, Home Of The Arts laughing all night long?

On Wednesdays We Wear Pink | QT Gold Coast: The Spring

As part of the GC's annual Film Festival on April 15th to the 26th, a variety of fun film-related events will be popping up all around you. One of those events is an all-pink screening of the teen-cult classic Mean Girls at QT Gold Coast’s brand-new poolside precinct, The Spring. It's honestly the perfect excuse on a Wednesday evening to put together your cute pink pieces and enjoy happy-hour poolside, while reciting the words to all the iconic scenes along with Regina George. QT is the place to be on April 22nd to experience watching the most meme-able movie at Gold Coast's most instagram-able venue.

Revived Couture | Marina Mirage

It’s not just a bag.. it’s couture darling! Revived Couture is giving all other boutiques a run for their money. The eco-conscious legends at this beautiful Marina Mirage boutique are just as noble as the bags they sell. We're all well-aware of the devastating bushfires that ripped through Australia this past Summer, and to do their part in helping the community, the eco-warriors of Revived Couture is donating 30% of their profits directly to the Queensland Firefighters Association! Their support and effort for bushfire relief through upcycled firehouse handbags definitely represents what it means to be a true Aussie! To have a unique design by your side that no one else owns is everything we love about couture! What we love even more is sustainable couture fashion and being the only Queensland stockist who sources global sustainable luxury brand Elvis & Kress is very telling of Revived Couture's uniqueness. They're everything the Coast has been missing! Once entering the boutique, you'll be immersed in a one-of-a-kind experience, getting to choose your own specially designed bag.
