Sunday Stories 11.01.15

January’s been serving up healthy doses of the good life, with a few thrills and spills to keep things interesting. Beach Break I was lucky enough to spend a few days with my family and boyfriend on Bribie Island, at a quiet little beach town. Our days revolved around the water. We went for swims in the morning, followed by a dip in the pool. … Continue reading Sunday Stories 11.01.15

Cowch Cocktail & Dessert Bar, Brisbane

Brisbane’s South Bank precinct has attracted a number of haunts for your sweet tooth over the last couple of years, but none are as easy on the eyes (or tastebuds) as South Bank’s latest addition, Cowch Cocktail & Dessert Bar. It’s been on my list to try since it opened and when the sugar cravings hit (hard) this afternoon at the South Bank sushi train, I … Continue reading Cowch Cocktail & Dessert Bar, Brisbane

The Queensland Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA) is the most visited art gallery in Australia for a reason.

In my opinion, since it’s opening in  2006 it’s also encouraged the Queensland Art Gallery (QAG) next door to lift its game. It’s situated in the heart of the Queensland‘s … Continue reading 2 for 1: Cai Guo-Qiang & California Design at QAGOMA

Brisbane Whale Watching

It seems ridiculous, but up until Sunday I had a (slightly) irrational fear of whales. Despite this, Sunday was the most amazing wildlife encounter of my life, and I’m still buzzing! On a full day tour with Brisbane Whale Watching, I lost count of the number of beautiful humpback whales that I saw, only metres from our eco-friendly, luxury vessel. It was honestly the most exciting yet relaxing … Continue reading Brisbane Whale Watching
