Tiaraaaaa Local Star

I enjoy being out and about, nature and taking as many holidays as possible. I love shopping and grabbing a good bargain, sipping a good latte and generally being on the move. I love having the opportunity to review all my favourite businesses and the few not so nice, and hope that my reviews are useful to other people.

  • Coles Express

    Petrol & Service Stations Surfers Paradise, QLD
    Offering staple groceries items such as bread and milk, snacks, drinks, magazines, hot food and the coffee machine coffee at a bargain 80c - nowhere can you get a coffee that cheap these days ;)

  • Coles Express

    Petrol & Service Stations Miami, QLD
    Owning a fussy car I don't regularly use shell fuel however frequently visit the Coles Express store for essential groceries such as bread and milk which is the same price as the regular supermarkets (winning convenience).

    The service is very friendly. The store well stocked with not only staple grocery items but snacks, drinks, magazines, hot food and even hot wheels car ;)

    Shop online and collect your groceries from the click and deliver containers. Convenience plus.
  • BP

    Petrol & Service Stations Oxenford, QLD
    We regularly fill up at this servo when visiting relatives in the area as the prices are not inflated to an insulting level like highway counterparts and not as busy.

    The pumps are modern and you can get whatever fuel you need. Friendly service, quick pumps and easy location.
  • Salvos Stores

    Community Service/Non-Profit Burleigh Heads, QLD
    What a surprise this o
    salvos was the first time I ventured in. From the outside it looks like a little outlet with preloved clothing and affordable household products at the front of the store but once inside the store is deceiving with a long back section filled with affordable second furniture, beds, household items and bric a brac.

    Prices are very reasonable and it is a great feeling being able to donate to charity and pick up a thrifty bargain at the same time.
  • Mrs Flannery's Natural Food Supermarkets

    Supermarket & Grocery Stores Miami, QLD
    The place to shop when looking after ones temple. Great selection of all things organic, essential oils, salt lamps, gluten free, grains, skincare, vegan and little bits and pieces to spice up your household.

    Warm ambience, friendly service and convenient location. Not the cheapest place on the block but well worth a look.
  • Harbour Seafood Market

    Seafood Labrador, QLD
    One of the best seafood shops on the Coast but one of the priciest also. Whether you opt for cooked takeaway fish and chips or fresh fillets and prawns for home, they certainly will not disappoint. Their oysters are housed in a filtration system where you can choose either shucked or unshucked and select your own prawns fresh off the ice.

    The side salads are freshly homemade and complement nicely. It does get pretty busy on the weekend so best to get down there early for the freshest catch.
  • Pacifica Trading Pty Ltd

    Seafood Robina, QLD
    Conveniently located off Scottsdale hidden just beyond the T Centre shopping centre (keep driving straight through the roundabout).

    Nice selection of fresh seafood - whole fish, fillets, sashimi grade pieces, oysters, mussels, Moreton bay bugs - you name it, they have it.

    Parking at the door, reasonable prices, quick service and fresh seafood.
  • Amcal Pharmacy

    Chemists Miami, QLD
    This little Amcal offers so much convenience with excellent trading hours (early mornings and after 5 closing time) perfect for before or after work. Although not very large the store is packed with all your pharmaceutical needs, small gifts, beach items, orthopedic thongs, cards and much more. The onsite pharmacists are knowledgable and understanding and so helpful with medical advice when visiting the doctor is not always an immediate option.

    Prices are reasonable and nothing beats a rewarding membership program (every product bought adds up to members point which can be used for money off).
  • Shiraz Authentic Persian Restaurant

    Restaurants Surfers Paradise, QLD
    A warm night on the Coast, great company and a free night to dine out with visiting family, what better place than Shiraz Persian Restaurant. A table of six we opted for 3 share plates of authentic Persian long grain rice, beautiful selection of chicken, lamb and beef skewers, fresh salad and plenty of condiments. Absolutely delicious!! Attentive service but not smothering and plenty of outdoor seating, which offers quite an interesting scene during schoolies week haha ;)
  • Burleigh Thai

    Takeaways Burleigh Heads, QLD
    My wonderful workmates led me to this little gem on James Street. Fresh traditional flavours (particularly love the chicken skewers and chicken and cashew nut), cooked to perfection and an affordable share lunch with the girls - yummy!!
  • Bin 12

    Specialty Food Burleigh Heads, QLD
    Omg on the advice of my fellow reviewers I ventured my tastebuds to try Bin 12 and I am totally hooked on the karaage chicken (nom nom nom). The atmosphere is relaxed and inviting and the prices very reasonable. Will definitely be showcasing this little gem to out of town friends and family.
  • Commonwealth Bank ATM

    ATM Burleigh Heads, QLD
    Super convenient location for business and personal banking although a smaller branch so the wait times can be a little longer but the personable service the minute you walk in is well worth the wait. Fully functional branch with over the counter tellers for cash deposits, withdrawals, change and enquiries. Customer service desk for assistance with netbanking and printing services.
  • Southport Steam Laundry

    Dry Cleaning & Laundry Southport, QLD
    One of the biggest linen supply companies on the Coast and working within the accommodation industry it is very important linen supplies are top quality. The customer service is friendly and the easy to use online ordering service allows for peace of mind next day deliveries.

    An approachable adjustments service allows for easy swap of unusable linen and easy to reconcile tax invoice system for end of month processing.

    Fast delivery, reasonable commercial prices and friendly service.
  • My Deluxe Cleans

    Cleaning Burleigh, QLD
    The best carpet cleaners I have met on the Coast. Each and every time I have booked a job, the team have turned up on time and when advised. Friendly personable service from the Director to the workers, competitive prices, quality workmanship and reliable service. Highly recommend.
  • Burson Auto Parts

    Vehicle Spare Parts Burleigh Heads, QLD
    Regularly had to call on Bursons for commercial stock orders and parts for our family mechanical shop. Easy over the phone orders and timely delivery with the option of a 30 day trading account or cash on delivery. Friendly service, timely turnaround and quality products.
  • Roshad Appliance Service

    Household Appliances Retailers Burleigh Heads, QLD
    Professional reliable service for any commercial business on the Coast. My workplace regular calls upon the technicians at Roshad due to their quality customer service, prompt turnaround time and workmanship. They understand how to look after locals and offer a great service at a reasonable price. Highly recommend.
  • Apple

    Computers Retailers Sydney, NSW
    Apple, Apple and more Apple products from Macbook Pros, Ipads, Desktop Macs, watches, accessories, fitbit and more.

    The support team is awesome and knowledgeable but be sure to make an appointment if you need technical support as they do get really busy, particularly during special releases, lunchtime and peak seasons.

    I love that the Apple store offers free internet for any kind of browsing and free chargers to get you enough battery power for a long train road home.
  • Easyflowers

    Florists Hindmarsh, SA
    By Google chance I stumbled across Easyflowers which offers a very easy to navigate online ordering service with plenty of pictures to ensure a transparent transaction and you can see on screen exactly what you want to buy. Beautiful long stemmed roses in red, pink or white; special occasion bouquets or coloured just because you need cheering up gerberas. Whatever the occasion the team at Easyflowers will have your recipient smiling ear to ear.

    Same day delivery, friendly phone service, great selection and very reasonable prices plus special members discounts and competitions if you sign up for the email newsletter. Highly recommend.
  • Burleigh Heads Bowls Club

    Bowling Burleigh Heads, QLD
    A really great place for locals to relax and enjoy a drink and a catchup. The location is really easy to get to with metered street parking at the door or free council parking just a short walk up Park/Ocean Street.

    Staff are very friendly and welcoming and the ambience is relaxed, simple and unpretentious. Popular amongst the older bowls locals, pick your timing and you are sure to meet some great company with a story or two to tell.

    Drinks and food are very reasonably priced from a simple menu. Well worth a try if travelling to the area.
  • Pizza Capers

    Specialty Food Mermaid Waters, QLD
    The customer service at each Pizza Capers is faultless accompanied by some tasty pizza options and sides, easy to get to location and weekday specials.

    You can opt for the basics range - Margherita or Hawaiian or the more gourmet range which includes super supreme, seafood and chicken toppings.

    Located within the small Mermaid Waters shopping centre you can usually get a park right outside the store. Highly recommend.
