Just in case you weren't aware yet - There's some seriously cool stuff going down on the Coast this week! We've got events from Coomera to Cooly, with the revival of Buskers by the Creek back for yet another year and the grand opening of Coomera Westfield this Thursday. Grab your gal pals and shop to your hearts content with a huge range of sales in just about every store in Westfield, or head down to Cooly Tavern for two days of art, music and entertainment in Australia's biggest busking Festival! Not a fan of art and music? Don't worry, Westfield has plenty of food too!

Buskers By The Creek | October 13th & 14th @ Currumbin Pub

Buskers By The Creek is back for another year, bringing all of our favourite buskers, performers and circus actors for one awesome weekend of entertainment! Kicking off with the pre-festival competition on October 12th and then running all weekend, you'll be treated to plenty of live music and roving entertainment as you make your way through the park. Grab a bite to eat from one of the many food vendors or situate yourself in the bar area, where the Stone & Wood and Sailor Jerry teams will be serving up all the goods while you enjoy the performances throughout the day. There's also free parking - So why not head down?

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.
