Picnic Real Food Bar | Mount Tambourine

This open-air café is the new Mt Tambourine café we’d pic(nic) any day. Located in the environmentally sustainable North Shores food and art precinct, Picnic Real Food Bar offers delicious rustic food, speciality coffee and craft beers. They can even pack you a picnic box to take with you as you relax and enjoy the views, because what’s a day trip to Mt Tambourine without a picnic.

Sip Sip Hooray | Surfers Pavilion

A new waterfront venue has just opened in Surfers Paradise and we are prepared for happy hour. The Surfers Pavilion has stunning, uninterrupted waterfront views, DJ’s on rotation, and a frosé station. For those who don’t know, frosé is frozen rosé, so it’s basically a slushie for adults. Yum!

Kira Whitehand

An introverted extrovert who wants to be a journalist, but also a marketer; still trying to pinpoint my passion. If only astrology was real and could tell me what I should be doing. I wake up and fall asleep to music, so if I end up writing about it too you'll know I'm happy. Maybe not as happy as when I see a puppy, but pretty close. I find creative people the most interesting, so interviewing and writing their stories is so intriguing to me. Also, it could lead to backstage passes, so my priorities are definitely in the right order. I always get a wave from my local bubble tea lady as I pass by. She passes the vibe check.
