Is there anything better than spending your afternoon eating snacks and sipping wine? We didn't think so. Sanctuary Cove's Winter Wine Fest is right around the corner with plenty of local and international wines to savour, and Burleigh Brewing Co is hosting their next Outdoor Movie Night in a few weeks time. Beer or wine? Why not both!

Wine Masterclass | July 28th & 29th @ Marine Village Sanctuary Cove

Consider yourself a wine expert? Just ant to discover a bit more about all of your favourite drops? Sanctuary Cove's Winter Wine Festival is back again this weekend, with exclusive Masterclasses running all weekend to teach you all the stories and secrets behind the creation of your favourite drop. Hosted by Cameron Smith each one-hour class will feature a range of exceptional wines from local and international sources, with a panel of winemakers and industry experts ready to discuss the varieties, regions and stories behind their wines. Classes are priced at $15 per person and cover White Wine, Shiraz and Pinot Noir - But with limited spaces in each class, you won't want to wait!

Outdoor Cinema | July 26th @ Burleigh Brewing Co

Is there anything better than watching a movie under the stars with a cold beer in one hand and a box of popcorn in the other? We didn't think so. Everyone's favourite local brewery Burleigh Brewing Co is opening up their doors on the last Thursday of every month for movies under the stars, with plenty of booze, blankets and bites available to perfectly round out the night. Grab a ticket in advance for $15 and guarantee yourself a seat and a schooner, or pay $20 and just rock up on the night. Playing 18+ movies, it's adults only - So leave the kids at home and enjoy a night out!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
