  • Dick Smith
    Home Entertainment Retailers    Forster, NSW

    I was with some relatives when visiting Forster and went particularly to this Stockland for Dick Smith to replace a lost charger. We were immediately approached by the sales staff to offer assistance.
    Unfortunately, the only product they had to suit me was way to expensive (Belkin iphone 5 charger for $50,) but the rellies managed to wander out with a new phone, ($69) so they were happy.

  • Telstra Store Forster
    Mobile Phones Retailers    Forster, NSW

    Popped in here to scrounge for a phone charger, but the store was pretty busy and I was unable to be served. There's limited stock tho so easy to find what I was after - still unfortunately over twice the price I managed to find elsewhere.

  • Kmart
    Department Stores    Forster, NSW

    Was recently dopey enough to leave my charger behind at a hotel and had to head off to find a new one. The local electronics store wanted $50 for an iphone 5 charger, but managed to score the power source and cable for $17 in this KMart insteadh.
    Happy days!

  • Oroton
    Clothing Retailers    Kotara, NSW

    Great little store and even more fun when the 50% sale is on!
    Found some lovely cuff links for half price and have always eyed off their umbrellas, so finally became a proud owner at the recent sale. Very happy!

  • Diana Ferrari Clearance Store
    Clothing Retailers    Kotara, NSW

    This is a lovely store with helpful staff.
    Was lured in by the big sale signs recently and came out much lighter of wallet, but with four new pieces for the wardrobe.
    Love my new tops and had to wear the great red skirt the next day.
    Far too easy to part with money here in one of my favourite dress stores.

  • Napoleon Perdis
    Cosmetics & Beauty Retailers    Kotara, NSW

    Was running low on some foundation powder recently and stopped by to pick up a new compact. Lovely service with a smile. Easy transaction and was on my way again in no time.

  • Westfield
    Shopping Centres    Kotara, NSW

    A great Westfield if you're looking to make a dent in your account!
    I was on the hunt for some Napoleon cosmetics here recently, but just had to stop at DJ's, Oroton and Diana Ferrari as well.
    Parking was easy and the stores are all well laid out and easy to navigate for a first time visitor. First three hours is free too.
    Good sized food court with all the usual offerings too.

  • Crown On Darby Serviced Apartments
    Serviced Apartments    Cooks Hill, NSW

    Enjoyed a comfortable stay for one night recently.
    Had work in Newcastle, found check-in smooth. Was texted very clear instructions on how to access parking at the rear of the building and gain entry.
    Bed comfortable, amenities clean and kitchenette well stocked.
    All you could ask for in a little self contained serviced apartment.

  • Vittorio's Restaurant
    Restaurants    Pokolbin, NSW

    I enjoyed a lovely lunch at Vittorio's when in the HV for work.
    Chose the veal scallopini ($20) and sat close to the fire for a cosy lunch with a glass of local Sem Sav Blanc ($7.)
    Meal was well cooked, over crisp asparagus spears with a creamy mushroom sauce.
    I was first to arrive at 12 but by the time I left the place was nearly full, so very popular.
    Would be back.

  • Zinc on Darby
    Cafes    Cooks Hill, NSW

    Enjoyed a couple of lattes and the chorizo eggs here for brekky.
    The chorizo on Turkish with poached eggs was great, and really filling.
    There's indoor seating and covered outdoor seating out the back.
    I elected for out the back but there were a few seriously bad smells wafting through at different times.
    Otherwise, a nice brekky.

  • 5 Sawyers
    Restaurants    Cooks Hill, NSW

    Enjoyed a lovely late meal and drinks here. Settled on the tacos (4 small for $18) which were great and a gin & tonic.
    Great bar in popular Darby Street.
    Busy even on week nights.

  • Abicus Selections
    Music & DVD's Retailers    Cooks Hill, NSW

    A really funky little boutique in the heart of Darby Street offering a great selection of clothes, shoes and bags, books & music, sunnies and more.
    Worth popping in for a browse if you're having a wander in Darby Street, Newcastle.

  • McDonald's
    Takeaways    Nudgee, QLD

    I'm not the world's greatest junk food fan but after 30 hours travel, navigating customs and trawling through airline food, a Quarter Pounder from the closest Maccas was the best!
    Great service at the drive through and a hot fresh burger. Excellent!

  • Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa
    Hotels    Surfers Paradise, QLD

    The Marriott has been renovated fairly recently and the makeover looks great. Citrique is great for a meal in the lobby, there's Sake bar and other options for in house dining.
    Otherwise, lounge out by the lagoon and order a drink.
    Great choice for weddings and corporate functions.
    A great Gold Coast hotel.
    Minimal charges for parking apply.

  • Sublime Interiors & Living
    Interior Design    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    Sublime carries beautiful homewares and if you're looking for something a bit different for a gift you're sure to find it here.
    Great window displays. Really caught my eye with the lovely soaps and teapots.

  • James Street Deli
    Delis    Burleigh Heads, QLD

    This Deli has been around for ages. Do try if you're planning a party and want some great options for a cheese and meat platter. These guys really cover all the awesome smallgoods options.

  • Pig N Whistle
    Pubs & Bars    Brisbane, QLD

    Great location on the Brissy River and convenient if working in Eagle Street.
    A little pricey, but clean and good options for a quick drink and snack or sit down meal.
    Popular with the local corporate crowd and can get really busy!

  • Adairs
    Department Stores    Robina, QLD

    Like to have a browse through Adairs when new Manchester is required. Staff are always on hand to help find what you need. Good basics to the really luxe options in sheets and quilt covers.
    Great options to accessorise also.

  • Tweed Heads Bowls Club
    Bowling    Tweed Heads, NSW

    Good brasserie style feed here at the THBC. The fish was lovely and pizza great.
    Sandwiches and prawn cocktails also available.
    Reasonable prices and basic wines.
    Lots of seating but parking can be at a premium on site.

  • Velocity Espresso & Bar
    Cafes    Bilinga, QLD

    Always good for a quick latte or a snack when waiting for a flight.
    This is the best cafe in the airport and a latte is usually on my hit list before a flight to avoid the percolated mud often served onboard.
    Quick friendly service and really good coffee.
