7 Things You Have To Do This Winter
Well, Winter is here. Say goodbye to the long days and short nights, the warm weather and bright, sunny skies. We're lucky enough that we only really experience cold weather for a few weeks out of the whole three months (thanks Gold Coast!), but unless you plan on being a recluse for the entire season it's a good idea to seek out some Winter alternatives to keep you occupied.
8 New Winter Menu's To Wrap Your Mitts Around
Let's be honest with each other. Sure, we all love our Acai Bowls and Avo on Toast in the Summer, but isn't it high time we pulled out the stretchy pants and piled on the pancakes? There's nothing better than a cup of coffee and a hot breakfast in Winter, and with the weather turning cold all of our favourite restaurants and cafe's are pulling out the pans and frying up some hot, tasty goodness for us to wrap our frozen fingers around. Now we have to go and taste it all!
Food, Film and Festivals Galore!
Bring your wallet and party pants - The Easter long weekend is here, and we're totally ready to party! With exclusive new rooftop bars set to open up as well as two huge festivals coming to the Coast in the upcoming weeks (film buffs and festival-goers, this one's for you!), there's plenty to do - The only question is, where will you go first?
Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth This Easter
This is no April Fools... Easter is right around the corner, and everywhere we look there's a new sweet treat to sink our teeth into this long weekend! If copious amounts of Easter chocolate isn't enough to send you into a sugar-induced coma this Easter, the Gold Coast is ready and waiting to fill you with every sugary treat your heart desires. If sweet dreams are made of cream-filled doughnuts and chocolate covered waffles, I'm never waking up.

Besides watching dragon dances and listening to Chinese music we'll be eating our weight in Asian food this weekend, and with plenty of incredible Asian restaurants to choose from, we're sure you will be too!
Food, Glorious Food
Getting fit is nice.... But trying all the new food that the Coast has to offer is even better! We've kicked off 2018 with festivals and fun, and now it's time for the food. With Asian fusion and even food trucks popping up all along our beaches, we're busy stuffing our faces with some of the best new food that the Coast has to offer - And we think you'll love it too.
Christmas, Creations, Chocolate!
From Christmas stalls and creations to Chocolate shops, the Coast is getting ready to celebrate the craziest time of the year, and we're not holding back - Bring on the celebrations! With Christmas kicking off at NightQuarter and a brand new Nutella store opening up in Surfers (chocolate lovers beware!), there's plenty for everyone to do. So get shopping!
This Season's Hottest New Menus
Spring has finally sprung, and restaurants right around the coast are getting ready to open back up with a delicious array of new dishes to welcome in the warm weather! From fresh salmon to crisp salads, Spring is all about crisp, fresh food, and our restaurants are sure to deliver!
Clothing, Cocktails and Crafted Beer
Things are getting spooky here! With monsters due to start roaming the streets mid-next week, the Coast has kicked into full-blown Halloween mode - Complete with spooky festivals for the kids and Halloween cocktails for the adults! For those who don't celebrate Halloween, there's still plenty for you to choose from - Bag a bargain at NightQuarters rack n' rummage sale, or head on down to Broadbeach and delight your tastebuds in their Craft Beer Festival!
Fitness, Fun and Free Ice Cream!
Things are heating up on the Gold Coast, and this week we're all about cooling down and chilling out. From busking battles to sunset yoga, the Coast is coming alive with all things music, arts and entertainment. We'll be dressing up and heading out, but if you can't handle the heat, never fear - Robina has free ice cream!
Best Gold Coasts Breakfasts
Breakfast. We all love it. From Pancakes to Pancetta and Bacon to Bennies, there's the perfect breakfast for any occasion or time of day. Some of us would prefer breakfast for every meal of the day, and some might just wake up around lunchtime instead - But what do we do when breakfast is over? In my humble opinion, Breakfast should be available for all meals of the day, and it seems that these eight unique cafes have got it right!
Ten Places To Eat For $10 and Under
Everyone wants to live the high life, but when you’ve lived all weekend and you only have $10 left, you have to be a little creative. Well, rather than eat half of your friends food or conveniently forget your wallet during an outing, we’ve put together a list of ten restaurants on the Gold Coast with food for $10 or under – So you can still go out without breaking your wallet!
The best food and fashion that the Brickworks has to offer
The weather's getting warmer, the days are getting longer and Gold Coast festivals are back in full swing. From food and fashion to health and beauty, the Coast is alive and buzzing with a variety of festivals and events to welcome in Spring. Hosted every year in early September (this year it was on the 10th), the Brickwork's Inside Out event was certainly no exception - Showcasing the best of the Brickworks' food, fashion, health and beauty, it certainly wasn't a day to miss!
Beauty, Brickworks, Business!
Another week of events and new happenings will get you through. Flow and Thrive business workshop ensures you squeeze productivity from the weekend like juice from a lemon. Score yourself a spot in the mosh of mind-altering music at night. Get all the business out of your body by partying like a rock star.
Slam, Street Food, Salutations!
Free yoga classes are increasingly rare, but we’ve tracked one down for you. A focus on mindfulness forces you to draw inward as your body is pushed to the limits on the outside. Channel this for a live poetry reading, or reward yourself with Asian street food and botanical cocktails down at the Bazaar. We won’t judge.
