Can you smell the food trucks yet? We certainly can... Because the Broadwater Parklands will be full of them next weekend! If you're a fan of food you'll want to make your way down to Southport, but if you're a fan of booze you'll want to keep your eye on Kurrawa Park, because there's a Crafted Beer Festival going on down there soon too! Pick between Burgers, Bao, BBQ meats and Booze with two fabulous weekends of feasting, then make your way down to Surfers for the biggest 80's Club Reunion on the Coast, hitting off in neon style!

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.
