7 Ways To Spend Your Next Girls Night
We all need our gal pals sometimes. They're our sisters, our best friends and our soul mates all rolled into one, and life wouldn't be the same without them. Whether it's getting them to check for something in our teeth, confirming that that dress doesn't make us look fat, getting rescued from an awkward date or calling them at all hours when we get dumped, our gal pals are there for everything. So when girls night comes around, there's nothing better than putting on some lippy, grabbing a pair of heels and heading out! Whether you enjoy a quiet night at home or a night of crazy indulgence, everything is always a million times better with our friends.
Writing, Workshops & Weddings!
'Tis the season to get married! The days are a little bit brighter, the nights a little bit warmer and the weeks a little bit better. While wedding season arrives and the Coast's annual Wedding Expo comes back to save everyone from Bridezilla, creatives from all over the Coast are meeting in Byron for the annual Writers Festival. Pour your creative ideas out by the beach, and hear from some of Australia's most successful Authors. Not your thing? Crack open a cold one at NightQuarter instead in their Beer, Bourbon & BBQ Fest!
Food, Festivities & Finn Poke!
Can't wait for the weekend? Neither can we. There's nothing better than cracking open a bottle of your finest vino to celebrate Saturday, and that's exactly what Sanctuary Cove is doing, celebration the finer things in life this weekend with their Winter Wine Festival! Celebrate all the finest drops with your friends, or head to the beach and stop by Finn Poke's hot new Burleigh restaurant. Can you hear the weekend calling? We sure can...
Winter Movies & Wine Masterclasses!
Is there anything better than spending your afternoon eating snacks and sipping wine? We didn't think so. Sanctuary Cove's Winter Wine Fest is right around the corner with plenty of local and international wines to savour, and Burleigh Brewing Co is hosting their next Outdoor Movie Night in a few weeks time. Beer or wine? Why not both!
Theatrical Feats & Vegan Feasts!
What would you do if you stole $40,000? Asking for a friend.
Travel around the world, try new foods and uncover your creative side this week with new shows, new foods and new creative programs to help you enjoy even the coldest Winter nights! We're addicted to carbs so we'll be going straight to The 4217 for their All You Can Eat Pizza & Pasta nights, but maybe we'll swing by HOTA later for a show. What are you doing?
Food, Fun & Theatre!
I hate to break it to you, but it's already July! We've had six months of food, culture, events and fun, but it's not over yet. There's new Mexican restaurants, exciting new live shows and even Christmas in July! Grab your friends and your jacket and slide down the rabbit hole... You never know what you'll discover!
Parties, Paintings & Performances!
We're all about the crazy, the wild and the little bit extra. We love our food, we love our shows, and most of all, we love our booze! The brilliant minds behind Blanc de Blanc are gracing our theatres with their newest show, Deluxe Deluxe, and restaurants and bars all over the coast are providing plenty of food and entertainment to keep us going all night long. Stuff your face full of Chinese food at Lupo, wind down with a watercolour class at Burleigh Brewing Co or get your glitter on for an incredible night of shows... The Coast has got it all!
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.
The Perfect Gifts For Mum This Mother's Day
So, have you got your present for Mum sorted yet? Oh, you totally forgot it was Mother's Day this Sunday?

Not sure what to get? We've got you covered!
Plan Your Perfect Mother's Day Out
We love Mums. They can be cool, crazy, or sometimes a little bit weird, but at the end of the day we don't know what we'd do without them (and we wouldn't exist without them). They're our role models and biggest fans, our rocks and our shoulder to cry on. They're pretty important - And they deserve to be celebrated. So we've planned the perfect Mother's Day out - With brunch dates, pamper sessions and plenty of love all mixed in, your Mum will be feeling the love this Mother's Day. But don't forget, Mum's the word!
Wellness From Within
Now that Summer has kicked the bucket, it’s time to give your skin some much-needed lovin’. The Gold Coast is still heating up, thanks to this range of natural beauty companies. Jojoba, sweet almond and jasmine are just a few of the organic delights.
Drinks, Dining, Dinosaurs!
Christmas is here! For most of us, the next week is going to involve far too much food, far too much alcohol, and far too much festive fun! This week is all about spending time with friends and family, and whether that means staying in or eating out, there's plenty to do and see. For the adults, there's plenty of food and wine ready for the tasting, but if you're still looking for the perfect Christmas gift, why not book tickets to Erth's Dinosaur Zoo?
Cute Paws and Fresh Pours
From cute paws to new pours, the Coast has something for everyone! With Christmas coming up, there's no better place to be than at the Arts Centre Markets (where you can view and make your own adorable puppy statues), but if you're getting sick of all of the festive stuff why not check out Chevron's inaugural Festival? Celebrating the new and improved Chevron Renaissance shopping centre with plenty of food and live music, it's the perfect way to spend your weekend - And once you're full, why not finish off the night at the brand new 4 Birds Tap House in Paradise Point! Weekend sorted.
From Coomera to Cooly
With Christmas right around the corner, it's no surprise that we're spoilt for choice when it comes to Christmas Carols and Markets. With Pop-Up events from Coomera to Cooly we're sure you'll find somewhere to celebrate Christmas. In case you need some help, we've got a few choice picks. With Cronuts, Carols, cheap christmas gifts and plenty of celebrations on offer, you'll be in the Christmas spirit in no time!
Music Festivals, Mayor's Carols, Bob Marley!
We all love our music festivals, and with the silly season right around the corner there's no shortage of carols, culture and celebrations to go around!
