  • Santos Organics
    Health Markets    Byron Bay, NSW

    This is great for everyone who takes a serious interest in their health.
    Like all organic stores, nothing is too cheap, but there's heaps of options to suit all who have food preferences, allergies, intolerances or just want the best.
    The juice bar is another good stop in Byron.

  • McDonald's
    Takeaways    Seven Hills, NSW

    This is a busy noisy Maccas but was a convenient stop for a cuppa and banana bread for brekky on a recent road trip.
    Plenty of parking and both indoor and outdoor seating available.
    Big play area for the kids too.

  • Novotel Sydney Central
    Hotels    Haymarket, NSW

    I usually have a lovely experience at a Novotel but this one was a little weird.
    I was lucky enough to be upgraded to Accor Gold status recently and lined up in the priority check in queue.
    As I approached the counter, I was apologised to as the concierge called over and served two other customers from the other line first.
    All good, I wasn't in a hurry, but not sure now of the purpose of the queue anyway??
    My room was on the 16th floor and fairly standard for an older hotel. However there was a wet patch on the carpet outside the bathroom that never dried.
    I was also undressed and ready to jump in the shower when I noticed I had been given no towels. I called housekeeping and waited around for 10 minutes, before showering anyway and drying off with a bath mat!
    The onsite restaurant Field House was nice and parking is really convenient as it let me have multiple entries.
    But it's the following day... and I still haven't seen those towels!

  • The Strand Arcade
    General Retailers    Sydney, NSW

    Love the old world beauty of The Strand Arcade in Sydney.
    The building is beautifully maintained and has lots of great little shops to browse through from jewelry to men's and women's wear, tea and accessories.
    Always worth a visit.

  • Duo Jewellery
    Jewellery & Watch Retailers    Sydney, NSW

    Can't believe I forgot to pack earrings on my last Sydney trip, so just had to buy some new ones.
    Duo was a great find and I added two new pairs to my collection.
    Very happy!
    Lovely friendly staff.

  • Haigh's Chocolates
    Confectionery    Sydney, NSW

    Ok, so I tried to walk past, but just couldn't! The peppermint dark Choc frogs were calling me... and the dark scorched almonds as a sample were pretty good too.
    Lovely store and friendly staff.

  • Dymocks
    Bookstores    Sydney, NSW

    Wow! If you can't find something interesting in here, you're not looking hard enough!
    I only did a tour of the ground floor and it covered books, audio books, stationery, gifts, cards, magazines, gift bags, wrapping and more.
    Almost overwhelming!!

  • Hotel CBD
    Pubs & Bars    Sydney, NSW

    Enjoyed a lovely couple of drinks and a chicken parmy with girlfriends at Hotel CBD for lunch on a Friday. Don't head in too long after 12 or it'll be hard to find a seat.
    Fine dining upstairs if you prefer.

  • McDonald's
    Takeaways    Rutherford, NSW

    Convenient location when I stay over the road at Mercure Maitland, to drop in for a quick brekky on my road trips.
    Only $5.50 for a coffee and toasted sammy, so good value.
    Cheese not melted and barely warm bread but a cheaper way to start the day than a $25 hotel brekky!

  • Wickham Motorcycle Cafe
    Cafes    Wickham, NSW

    Enjoyed a really lovely brekky bruschetta here with a latte. Great ambiance at the cafe.
    Lots of bikes, memorabilia, parts and even a photo booth and souvenir shirts.
    Fresh herbs grow in cut up tyres and a garden bed out front and the coffee is great.
    A very cool find in Newcastle.

  • Fratelli Roma
    Restaurants    Maitland, NSW

    This is a fantastic addition to the emerging foodie scene in Maitland.
    Fresh pasta made daily and beautiful attention to detail.
    My chicken parmy was lovely and so filling... and the Creme brle was fantastic.
    I will be back!
    There's a wine menu (not too many by the glass) or BYO.

  • Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat
    Holiday Resorts    Tallebudgera, QLD

    Recently attended a 3 day retreat at Gwinganna with 50 amazing women and the whole experience was first class.
    Whether you're looking for physical, emotional or spiritual wellbeing, bush walks, yoga, detox, guidance on organic foods, or to indulge with spa treatments, this place has something for everyone!
    Would thoroughly recommend and hope to return soon.

  • International Beach Resort
    Serviced Apartments    Surfers Paradise, QLD

    Brilliant location and walking distance to all Surfers has to offer, even the new tram.
    But these are older, dated apartments. Small room, bathroom and kitchenette but if you're out all day, who cares?
    Slow lifts.
    Reasonable prices.

  • Supreme Kebabs
    Takeaways    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    Great kebabs and the staff are always friendly. Can't go past the turkish delight and baklava here for the family when at Burleigh Town.
    Fresh kebab options and heaps of healthy additions.

  • One50 Public House
    Restaurants    Bundall, QLD

    Wow! Popped in to One50 after the Melbourne Cup and the place was packed! Great atmosphere! Took a while to get a drink, but all good. Had a great 'wind down' after the fun of the Cup.
    Great spot in Bundall, close to everything. Will have to come back for a feed sometime!

  • Pashin
    Jewellery & Watch Retailers    Surfers Paradise, QLD

    If you're sick of boring black for work, then you have to try Pashin. There's gorgeous bright colours and fun fashion. Love the comfy dresses and wraps in exotic colours. There's also gifts, jewellery and some more exotic home wares. Another great addition to James Street.

  • She Envy Boutique
    Clothing Retailers    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    Nice little boutique in James Street. Well laid out so easy to browse the racks. Cute purses, bags and hats and some different dresses too. Am loving all the options on James Street these days!

  • Urban Groove
    Cards & Gift Shops    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    Very cool store in the middle of James Street - really becoming a great cafe lifestyle precinct. There's retro gifts, books, homewares, vintage gear, clocks and really quirky gift ideas and things you won't find anywhere else. Lots of fun for a sticky or if you really have someone who's hard to please or has it all.

  • sushi on james
    Restaurants    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    Nice fresh Sushi here at the beach end of James Street. Great to grab in the takeaway containers and head down to Burleigh Esplanade to enjoy on the beach. Tho you can sit instore in the air-con if you prefer. Nice ambiance inside.

  • Le Deux
    Clothing Retailers    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    This is a great little women's wear boutique in James Street. Interesting fashion options and really different jewellery, Nice to have a wander in when heading down to the beach or enjoying a cuppa in James Street.
