Celebrate Our Very Existence
“The festival is a place you can escape from ‘reality’ and immerse yourself in cultures from near and far. It is a place where artists inspire, community spirit engulfs and life memories are made.”
The Woodford Folk Festival is an internationally acclaimed annual event taking place over 6 days from 27th December to 1st January.

The Nicest Guys Around
When you think of a chef who devotes himself to helping others, most people would think of Jamie Oliver. While the English boy has his charm, he can’t hold a single tiny candle to the work Australian Chef and all around good guy Jerome Dalton of Dalton Hospitality does.
The unauthorized Harry Experience, a parody by Dan and Jeff.
"Potted Potter: The unauthorized Harry Experience, a parody by Dan and Jeff" is the Olivier-award nominated mind-gem of multi-talented Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, and has been played out on stages all over the world. It's a humorous, completely accurate (wink, wink) re-telling of the Harry Potter saga.

Back A Winning Venue
As soon as you’re done dusting the Halloween party glitter off your pants, BAM! It’s Melbourne Cup! Which means it’s also time to plan your perfect racing shindig for the annual action; which won’t be that hard considering the wide range of funky fresh venues ready and waiting to cater your favourite excuse to drink champagne event. Here are some of the coolest spots to watch the race!
The edgy must-have accessory
There’s something that takes my breath away about hand-made leather goods. Maybe it’s due to the knowledge that the maker has been intimately involved with the creative process, or maybe it’s partly due to my inability to sew; either way there is no denying the longevity of a quality-made product. This is what makes Brisbane leather accessories label R& Collective a breath of fresh air in a somewhat disposable fashion industry.

As always, this year promises to be bigger and better than ever, so you’ll definitely want a good vantage point and a good spread to help you take in all of the action.
The new dinner menu is aromatic, colourful and unique.
Shouk café’s new dinner menu is aromatic, colourful and unique. Its Middle Eastern flare truly sets the standard in modern day dining. Tucked away on Collingwood Street in Paddington, the atmosphere is homely yet refreshing, with tones of blue, white, dark wood and Middle Eastern hints. From the front, Shouk looks small, but drift on through to their closed-in balcony (intimate) and you’ll be all Shouk up by the ambience of the open dining area.

The thing about us Australians is that we love our beer. It’s a stereotype, but one we certainly don’t mind enforcing, because beer is a thing that is synonymous with having a good time with your mates. A good beer is a perfect companion when getting together with the family and friends, be it at the bar, over the BBQ in the backyard, or around a campfire.
