  • Cafe Biaggi

    Cafes Burleigh Waters, QLD
    Not a bad little cafe for a light lunch or a cuppa when at the Treetops shopping centre.
    The coffee is pretty good and there's generous servings if you like burgers and chips.
    Staff have always been friendly to all who pop in.
  • SoundLounge

    Pubs & Bars Currumbin, QLD
    Attended a great concert in the Sound Lounge at the RSL and had a fantastic night. Music was good, and drinks cold - what more can you ask for on a night out?
    Great spot in Currumbin supporting various local acts. Worth a visit when a great gig is on.
  • Pure Water Systems

    Professional Services Burleigh Heads, QLD
    We've used Pure Water Systems for our last three homes and currently run the whole house on the Big Boy with even our showers being filtered. It's great to be able to drink water straight out of the tap.
    PWS are proactive and let us know every year to two when servicing is required.
    Definitely recommend!
  • The Tea Centre

    Coffee & Tea Suppliers Canberra, ACT
    This was the first Tea Centre shop I'd ever visited many years ago and fell in love with the Sydney Special blend. Still love the smell of the teas when in store and all the beautiful gifts on offer. The tea sets, tea towels and pots are all lovely. Great spot for tea lovers and pre-packed tea blends on offer gifting.
  • Natural Choice Health Foods

    Health Markets Mudgeeraba, QLD
    If often stop by here to pick up Coyo products since learning of a dairy allergy (there's coconut milk ice-cream and yoghurt - who knew?) plus health supplements.
    Staff are always able to help me track down what I need, even if it's a little obscure.
    Fairly pricey - but convenient and local for me.
  • Mecca Cosmetica

    Cosmetics & Beauty Retailers Canberra, ACT
    If you love shopping for make-up, Mecca has it all. It's a department store of make up stocking over 100 different brands, including Benefit and Philosophy . Always enjoy having a browse and usually come away with a lippy or mascara when dropping in.
  • Soul Pattinson Chemist

    Chemists Gungahlin, ACT
    Large chemist in a small shopping centre . Good to drop your scripts off whilst doing the groceries at Woolworths. Lots of specials on everyday items too. Usual health supplements, vitamins and over the counter meds available too.
  • Valore Cellars

    Bottle Shops Parramatta, NSW
    Dropped in to Valore Cellars to pick up a couple of bottles of Moet for a charity lunch raffle, and staff were friendly and helpful. Gift bags were also available on site, so drinks could be carted directly to the event all ready to go! Happy days!
  • Adore Tea

    Coffee & Tea Suppliers Nicholls, ACT
    Enjoyed a lovely High Tea at Gold Creek for a charity fundraiser recently.
    Staff were happy to cater to all dietary requirements.

    Friendly staff and gift shop on site with over 300 teas to try or buy.
    Great afternoon had by all.
  • Palm Beach 7 Day Amcal Chemist

    Chemists Palm Beach, QLD
    Been coming to this chemist for years, convenient spot on the highway, and open 7 days for when you really need something out of hours!
    Parking can be scarce, but easy to find location.
    Well laid out store with all the essentials plus scripts, gifts etc.
    Helpful staff.
  • Coco Cubano

    Cafes Parramatta, NSW
    Enjoyed kicking back and having a pina colada here recently when visiting Parramatta.
    Another great addition to the Church Street wander.
    Good vibe and lots to look at on the walls etc.
    Wait staff were pretty slow to take my order, but I had nowhere else to be, so all good.
  • Raw Sugar Cafe

    Takeaways Canberra, ACT
    Enjoyed a soy chai latte here to start the day, and stayed for breakfast.
    Staff were happy to accommodate my dairy allergy and the eggs, bacon and tomato was fine. Pretty pricey tho.
  • Woolworths

    Supermarket & Grocery Stores Gungahlin, ACT
    This Woollies is a local for a friend I visit and stay with when in Canberra.
    Just a small store with a chemist and bakery in the Centre, in the heart of town, but perfect for the weekly groceries or a quick top up shop.
    Plenty of parking too.
  • Black Mountain Tower

    Telephone Services Acton, ACT
    Have been up the tower a couple of times for the views and if you've never done it before, it's worth a look. Definitely could use a makeover, but great photo opporunitites of the surrounds. Take a jumper tho cos the winds can just about blow you away!
  • Diana Ferrari Clearance Store

    Clothing Retailers Canberra, ACT
    A gorgeous floral dress in the window of Diana Ferrari recently caught my eye when wandering through the Canberra Centre - unfortunately, it just looked better on the Mannequin than me.
    But do love their range and the sales girl was friendly too.
  • Myer

    Department Stores Canberra, ACT
    I always love a wander through MYER (when without my children) and particularly like the Jane Lamerton range they stock.
    Was recently in Canberra, and on my own so made the most of an opportunity for a visit on my own and as always, was a lovely experience.
    Didn't purchase anything this time around, but enjoyed the browse, all the same.
  • Big W

    Department Stores Canberra, ACT
    Am heading off overseas and popped in for some basics to take with me on the trip.
    Spent a bit of time browsing and in the change room but unfortunately came away empty handed. Well laid out large store tho, with everything easy to find.
  • Flower En Counter

    Florists Broadbeach, QLD
    Lovely bouquets on site if dropping by to pick up something for a gift or to lift your home. Haven't used the order and delivery service but the over the counter purchase was lovely and gratefully received.
  • Koko Black

    Takeaways Canberra, ACT
    Beautiful handmade chocolates here - stopped for some gifts for the family recently and took home their 3 blocks for $24. The hot chocolate and cuppa menu is great too (just not after a huge Italian meal at Jamie's next door!)
    Always a treat to pop in here when visiting the ACT.
  • Bras N Things

    Lingerie Retailers Canberra, ACT
    Was after a particular bra for an upcoming trip and staff were very helpful at finding just what I needed.
    They only had one in stock so ordered me another to be posted to home free of charge. Good stuff!
