GC Word on the Street #76

The Easter holidays may be over, but we're still being totally spoiled with choice when it comes to things to do. We've got Southern BBQ's, we've got Sweatathlons, and we've got the official lineup for Splendour 2018! (Cue cheering). Foodies, health nuts and festival-goers unite... This week is for you guys!

BBQ Bazaar

Burleigh is all about the three B's - Beaches, Bars and Boarding - And now they've added a whole other level, the Big BBQ Bazaar! Inspired by our favourite Asian and Southern Texan flavours that'll leave your mouth watering, this new foodie festival celebrates all things meat. Let the scent of brisket, sausages, satay and wood fired pizzas lure you in between the stalls, where you'll encounter BBQ flavours from every corner of the globe. With a BBQ Bao in one hand and a slice of Pizza in the other, take a seat at the bar or enjoy the live music floating over from the stage. Running every Friday and Saturday afternoon until 10pm, Running every Friday and Saturday night and embodying Australian foodie culture perfectly, it'd be un-Aussie to miss Burleigh's first night market!

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.
