  • Anzac Memorial - Anzac Memorial Building
    State Government    Sydney, NSW

    A very serene part of Hyde Park to sit for a lunch when in Sydney CBD.
    The memorial and reflection pond are beautifully laid out and a great place to get away from the hustle.

  • Shingle Inn
    Cafes    Robina Town Centre, QLD

    Have held a few client meetings here and just stopped in for coffee with the family. Hubby loved the cheesecake!
    Coffee is always nice.
    Seating is a bit limited and the booths hard to get, but ok for a time out when shopping at Robina.

  • Atrium Bar
    Pubs & Bars    Broadbeach, QLD

    If you're ever out late and wondering what's still open, try the Atrium bar in the lobby level of the Casino.
    Usually a fun crowd, great music and good drinks to be had here.
    Excellent spot for when a work function is over and you just need to kick on!

  • Madisons Cafe
    Cafes    Broadbeach, QLD

    Great trading hours if you're looking for something either really early in the morning, or late at night. There's indoor and outdoor seating and the cafe is usually pretty busy!
    I've used Madisons for family outings, business meetings and just for a quiet coffee.
    The ham and cheese croissants for brekky are filling and the coffee is worth going back for seconds. Great spot in the mall, but can take time to be served in the peak times. A true local.

  • The Source Bulk Foods
    Health Markets    Byron Bay, NSW

    This place if a fairly new addition to the rows of shops in the main drag of Byron but has row upon row of health foods, wholesale products, flours, seeds, nuts and gluten free items and carob and chocolate treats.
    I'd gone in looking for bulk pink Himalayan salt and managed to score this for $8.50 p/kg. We also managed to find some berries covered and dark chocolate and couldn't resist a handful of them either!

  • Trinkets
    Hobby Shops    Byron Bay, NSW

    If all things beading and making your own jewellery is what you're into - then this is the place for you.
    There's also ready made necklaces, bracelets, rings etc, but also tuns of buttons, pins, baubles and beads to choose from. Hubby was after some options to fix a leather wrist strap which they were unable to help with, but did offer a few suggestions and were helpful with other options.

  • Sushi Train
    Takeaways    Miami, QLD

    Whilst living in Miami when building our home, this was our Sushi restaurant of choice, and the kids loved it! It's a smaller and more intimate shop, and can get busy!
    The trains are loaded with great stuff, the usual green tea option is available and staff are friendly - and rewards cards are available for the locals who are regulars too.

  • Careflight Group Queensland
    Specialist Medical Services    Robina, QLD

    Careflight has been one of our family's 'charity of choice' to support for a couple of generations now. We've collected lots of their goods - from bbq utensil cooking kits to their themed teddy bears to just outright giving.
    And when a family member was unfortunately in need of their services, they were fabulous and professional.
    Can't say enough great stuff about them! A fantastic initiative.

  • Amcal Pharmacy
    Chemists    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    I have used this local Amcal for many years as it's convenient, easy and you don't have to navigate the entire shopping centre to get there. It's easy to grab a park and duck in and out, especially when you aren't feeling that well and don't want to waste time.
    Apart from the usual prescription service, there's gifts, cards, perfumes, diet shakes, supplements, vitamins and help from the staff when you need it.

  • Earth Markets
    Fruits & Vegetables    Elanora, QLD

    Earth Markets have been in place for a while at The Pines and do fresh fruit displays in a really inviting way. Their fresh product has always been top quality when I've needed anything. It's easy to navigate the store and everything looks great and is easy to find. Anything that makes it easier to get the fresh stuff into the kids is great in my book!

  • Santos Trading Co
    Health Markets    Byron Bay, NSW

    A good mix of healthy fresh food, groceries, alternate drinks and produce in the main street of Byron Bay. Will often have a browse when wandering in Byron and usually find something worthwhile to come away with on my visits.

  • Specsavers Optometrists
    Opticians    West Burleigh, QLD

    My family have been coming here for years for eye tests and we have always found the staff very professional.
    Only recently have we needed to look at purchasing some frames and the girls were great at helping to pick something to suit.
    We'll be back.

  • Jetsu Kitchen
    Restaurants    Charlotte Bay, NSW

    Friendly service and nice Chinese.
    Bit out of the way, but popular with the locals.
    Enjoyed sharing a meal with the rellies when visiting.
    The fried rice was great and the pork and duck lovely.
    And always love the option of the doggie bag.

  • Tea Gardens Hotel-Motel
    Motels    Tea Gardens, NSW

    Recently stopped here for a lunch when on a road trip.
    Enjoyed the coconut prawns for lunch with a glass of wine. However it was pretty hard to keep the batter on the prawn.
    There's different dining areas, lounge seating, outdoor tables and the bar area.
    Lots of options.
    However, it's an older building that could use a bit of a makeover.

  • Bellapelle body clinic
    Beauty Salons    Mermaid Beach, QLD

    Was lucky enough to receive a $100 gift voucher for bellapelle and chose a microdermabrasion treatment (for $110.)
    Received an hour and a half treatment including a cleanse, mask, deep pore clean, light treatment,exfoliation, cherry mask and massage.
    Very relaxing.

  • Pullman Sydney Hyde Park
    Hotels    Darlinghurst, NSW

    Had a lovely stay here recently. Upgraded to the executive level which includes breakfast and drinks and canapés on level 21.
    Had great views over Hyde Park with walking distance into the City.
    Great size room with couch, working desk, and spa bath in bathroom.

  • Harrigan's Irish Pub
    Pubs & Bars    Jacobs Well, QLD

    Had a lovely working lunch on a weekend here.
    There's long lines for drinks and to order, but if you have nowhere to be, it's a great lazy afternoon with fantastic food. Live music was playing in the background.
    I loved my lamb shoulder and the duck was a hit too. Great feed.

  • Tempt Homewares & Jewellery
    Cards & Gift Shops    Pokolbin, NSW

    A lovely little shop in the Hunter Valley with great jewellery, gift ideas, home-wares and accessories. Worth a browse if at Pokolbin Village and heading through the Hunter for a day trip.

  • Simone Perele Factory Outlet
    Factory Outlets    Brisbane, QLD

    I love SP and often wear their sets, which can get pretty pricey at the department stores. Gotta love an outlet where you can still find your size, get the matching knickers and walk out with 2 sets for a great price.
    Staff are helpful. Very happy camper!

  • Jeans West
    Clothing Retailers    Hamilton, QLD

    Awesome! I found a pair of jeans that fit, without crying!!
    I'm really hopeless with clothes shopping and if a couple of items don't work, am usually not happy! The sales assistant worked out which 3 pairs were likely best for my shape and thankfully, one was a stand out. Happy days!
