  • L'occitane
    Cosmetics & Beauty Retailers    Robina, QLD

    The smells are lovely at L'Occitane and it's hard to go past their Fabulous Oil for hair and body and all their beautiful hand creams, body lotions, soaps and shower oils.

  • Mecca Cosmetica
    Cosmetics & Beauty Retailers    Robina, QLD

    If you're looking for any sort of makeup or skin care product, you're bound to find whatever you need at Mecca.
    Staff are helpful and you're sure to leave happy.
    Found a great little lip scrub here for dry lips. Good stuff!

  • Ice Design
    Clothing Retailers    Robina, QLD

    My daughter likes the dresses here, esp. when they're on special for 2 for $30.
    The basics are cheap and there's often good specials on offer with many '2 for $x' deals.
    Lots of flats sandals too for casual wear.

  • The Bowery
    Pubs & Bars    Fortitude Valley, QLD

    Packed bar, but great booths.
    Can still hold a conversation.
    Takes time to get served like most busy bars, but great atmosphere for late drinks in Brissy.

  • Press Club
    Restaurants    Fortitude Valley, QLD

    Great for a late night drink with friends.
    Open Til late, dark interior, comfy couches and great ambience.

  • Chac's Vietnamese Restaurant
    Specialty Food    Inala, Qld

    If you're after an authentic Vietnamese feed then you can't go past Chac's.
    Huge servings and great taste.
    A friend of mine is a regular here for the Pho and brought me along for lunch. I'm glad she did!!

  • Taboon
    Restaurants    Robina, QLD

    If you love Moroccan, then this is the place to head to.
    Their tagine cooked meals are lovely and bowls of food wonderful.
    Have been for lunch a few times, but will definitely come back for a night-time feed for the family. Staff are efficient, but it's a locals secret and can get pretty busy.
    Worth a visit.

  • Drunken Chicken
    Takeaways    Runaway Bay, QLD

    If you want a night off from cooking, definitely check out Drunken Chicken.
    The decor is pretty cool if you want to eat in-store but I usually grab a feed and head home. The wine options that the chook is cooked in are pretty amazing. Definitely worth checking out.
    And there's burgers and chips if you couldn't be bothered with a chook and vegies.

  • Flannerys
    Health Markets    Robina, QLD

    Much pricier on staples than most other supermarkets or organic shop options, but they do have some of the 'harder to find' items that aren't easily available.
    If organic is important to you and you're prepared to pay through the nose for it, then you can probably find what you need here.
    Lots of flour types and ready to order meals if you don't want to cook, so plenty to browse.

  • Mrs Flannery's Natural Food Supermarkets
    Supermarket & Grocery Stores    Miami, QLD

    Excellent shop for all things healthy and little more obscure than you can find in the supermarket. Odd oils, flours, spices, gluten and lactose free options, fresh and pantry items, they've got it all.
    Some of it's a little pricey compared to elsewhere, so do shop around!

  • Suncorp Bank
    Banks    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    Very convenient ATM when wandering James St to get those few extra dollars out for those purchases you hadn't counted on.. Or the odd retailer that still won't take EFTPOS.
    Handy location, very central.

  • No Name Lane
    Takeaways    Broadbeach, QLD

    Cute little coffee shop in a great area in Broadbeach.
    Went for lunch but was disappointed with the menu - it's bread or bread.
    So ordered the filling, without the bread...
    And a mineral water. Will have to come back for just a coffee at some stage.
    And a salad or two on the menu would be great!

  • Orient Hotel
    Pubs & Bars    Sydney, NSW

    Each time I visit The Orient Hotel, it's for a drink on the ground level during the day, so can't really comment on the rest of the facilities.
    It's easy to start a bar tab and the staff are happy to help.
    Great location in the Rocks with view of the Harbour Bridge up the street and the Opera House views a short walk.
    Always cold beers and bubbles available, so that keeps me happy!

  • Zia Pina Pizzeria Restaurant
    Restaurants    Sydney, NSW

    Enjoyed a pizza here and bottle of wine recently with a work colleague when staying in the Rocks. The serving staff were friendly and the pizza was great.
    Gets busy and was nearly full at lunch time so despite the mixed reviews, is obviously a Sydney institution and still popular.
    Fantastic location and a quick walk down to the Harbour for great views and photo ops.

  • Rothbury On Ann Heritage Apartment Hotel
    Hotels    Brisbane, QLD

    This is a heritage hotel, so has an older feel to it, from the minute you step through the door. The lifts are original and gorgeous and the suite I stayed in was huge.
    The one bedroom apartment was fully operational for a much longer stay than one night with a laundry and kitchenette, dining room and lounge area.
    Well priced, would be back when staying in the CBD again.
    Walking distance to everywhere in town and a quick wander from Central.
    Main drawbacks: no swimming pool (but a spa on the roof) and no in-house dining (tho you can self-cater.)

  • Yes Optus Melbourne
    Mobile Phones Retailers    Melbourne, VIC

    Popped in recently to pick up a lead as my phone charger cord stopped working when I was on a trip to Melbourne. Staff outnumbered me by about 10 to 1 so was spoiled for choice of service.
    They were happy to test both the lead and charger and replace just the lead for the iphone. Happy days!

  • Mr & Mrs G Riverbar
    Restaurants    Brisbane, QLD

    I often stop by Riverbar for a drink when working in Brissy.
    The views over the Brisbane River and Story Bridge are great as twilight sets in and the lights come on. Recently enjoyed some breads & dips, fishcakes and meatballs to before heading off to a concert.
    Friendly service, good location.

  • Harvest Moon
    Cafes    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    If you're after super healthy lunch options or you're on a diet, this is the place to go for a nutritious feed. Unfortunately the nonya chicken we all wanted wasn't available (nunya chicken!) so we settled on the red quinoa salad with smoked chicken. That was nice.
    Looks like the restaurant becomes a tapas bar at night so would like to head back sometime to try that option too.
    Staff are friendly. Order and pay at the counter.

  • Brisbane Entertainment Centre
    Venues & Event Spaces    Boondall, QLD

    It's probably not the greatest venue for bands but certainly well laid out, with plenty of parking and ease of entry.
    Some of the acts seen here are truly world class. I've been attending things here since Torville & Dean toured when I was a kid, through to Robbie Williams in 2014.
    Like any large gatherings, it can take a while for all to file out at the same time and hit the road, causing traffic bottle necks, but I guess that's the pain for attending some great nights out! There's lovely grounds if you attend events in the day and a walk around the gardens is always pretty.

  • Pony Dining Eagle St Pier
    Restaurants    Brisbane, QLD

    A lovely bar and restaurant on the Brisbane River with great views over the Storey Bridge.
    Stopped by for a couple of wines recently and some bar food. Staff were friendly and service was prompt. There's bar seating, outdoor and indoor seating and the decor is lovely.
    Will be back for a meal at some stage.
