  • Woolworths Ltd

    Supermarket & Grocery Stores Palm Beach, QLD
    Have been visiting this shopping complex since it opened in the 1980's and Jack the Slasher was the local supermarket!
    Now after major renovations, the local Woollies has been there for years.
    Easy and convenient store with lots of specialty shops around too - for all you grocery needs.
  • Currumbin R.S.L. Alleys Restaurant

    Restaurants Currumbin, QLD
    Great family restaurant at the RSL.
    Recently enjoyed their amazing coconut and chilli chicken while my daughter (recently vegetarian) loved the stuffed pumpkin flowers.
    The small roast was only $14.95 and hubby found that really filling.
    We shared the brle for dessert.
    Lovely attentive service and a great night out.
  • Saiko Teppanyaki

    Restaurants Robina Town Centre, QLD
    Good dining experience at The Kitchens, Robina.
    Can get really busy so might take a bit of time to be served.
    Dinner and a show if you get the teppanyaki and sit by the grill.
    Large bar on site.
    Specials come with steamed rice, salad and miso soup.
    Lots of options.
  • Shark Motorcycle Leathers & Accessories

    Motorcycle & Scooter Repair Helensvale, QLD
    Stopped by when Shark had their massive warehouse clearance on leathers.
    Hubby was looking for a tan leather jacket. It only black or black available for men.
    Did pick up a new pair of gloves for $55 tho.
    Sales Team very friendly and ready to help.
  • Blackbird Bar and Grill

    Restaurants Brisbane, QLD
    Great place for an event in Brisbane.
    Amazing views over the Brisbane River.
    Was recently hosted by Sunsuper for Riverfire and had awesome views of the Storey Bridge and up the river too.
    Great catering too including risotto, cheeses, tempura prawns, satay sticks, arancini and more.
    Great event space, highly recommended.
  • Viscosity

    Pubs & Bars Stanthorpe, QLD
    This is a very cool and quirky little cocktail bar open on Friday and Saturday nights in Stanthorpe.
    Preparation is all part of the show.
    Hubby enjoyed the espresso martini and I was recommended the champagne cocktail.
    Both were $17. Lots of shots available.
    Bar has been redone really well and an old arcade game is available to play.
    Stools and barrel tables available.
    Totally worth a visit!
  • Burp Restaurant

    Restaurants Mackay, QLD
    We'd heard rave reviews about Burp and were assured it was the best restaurant in Mackay.
    We arrived for a 1pm booking and were a table of 5.
    We decided to share 3 entrees and each have a main course.
    1 entree arrived on its own - pork croquettes (we'd ordered lamb) before another waiter realised they hadn't all arrived and chased up the other 2 starters.
    It was after 2.30 before our mains arrived and the trout was cold when it did turn up.
    At no stage did staff check in, offer us some breads or a drink to tide us over or keep us informed.
    Within 5 minutes tho our trout had been replaced with fish bits rather than a fillet as they'd run out.
    Sadly disappointing experience but fabulous company.
  • University of the Sunshine Coast

    Universities Maroochydore, QLD
    I completed my Master of Financial Planning online via USC but recently visited for the first time as I had been nominated for an Outstanding Alumni Award (which I sadly didin't win.)
    However, it was lovely to visit campus for the first time.
    There's an art gallery on site, coffee shop, co-0p book store and cafe.
    It has a lovely feel and was great to finally visit. Parking is all paid and can be a little tricky, but not too expensive,
  • Clonakilla Wines

    Vineyards & Wineries Murrumbateman, NSW
    Enjoyed a lovely free tasting at the Clonakilla Estate.
    Cheese platters are available for those who'd like some nibbles and outdoor tables supplied along with a lounge area indoor by the fire.
    Staff were lovely as we'd travelled with a toddler and a few empty boxes were supplied for her to have some fun too. Definitely worth the drive from Canberra to sample the wares and take a few wines home too... as we did.
  • Old Parliament House

    Federal Government Parkes, ACT
    Enjoyed a great self guided tour through Old Parliament House.
    Fascinating seeing the earlier 'corridors of power' and earlier offices of the PM along with the House of Reps and Senate. Good displays on various individuals, collections and when I went, a display called Dress Code: Empire based around a coat of Sir Edmund Barton.
    If you have little people, there's a great play area for the kids divided into three rooms which is really popular (great wet day activity if you're based in Canberra.)
    Also enjoyed lunch at Hoi Polloi. Made a lovely activity of a few hours here.
    Highly recommended if you like a little history.
    Aboriginal Tent Embassy still situated opposite.
  • Corin Forest

    Playgrounds Tharwa, NSW
    Had a very ordinary visit. It seems like this place sprang up from a great idea but has gotten too big and popular too quickly and is now a string of demountable buildings and makeshift toilets that really need a lot of work.
    Despite showing up early with pre-booked tickets, it still took us 50 minutes to get to the snow/ice and then it was difficult to actually get the toboggans to slide down the slopes.
    The toddler we took wasn't enjoying herself and after half an hour we decided it was all too hard and left.
    If you have your own gear, it's likely more fun than trying to faff around and get dressed in the hired (and already wet) gear on offer.
    Cafe didn't have anything on offer that we were interested in for lunch and so we went for a drive and found Lanyon Homestead for a meal.
    Pretty disappointing and we were hoping it would be the highlight of our weekend.
  • Long Chim

    Restaurants Sydney, NSW
    Enjoyed a pre-set corporate meal for around 16 people at Long Chim and the food was incredible. $68 per head.
    The entrees were Grilled Pork, Crunchy Prawns and Chive Cakes with a great amount of kick.
    Mains to share were grilled beef salad, pineapple curry of pork, red curry of barramundi and stir fried watercress.
    The black sticky rice and coconot slice to wrap it up was great.
    Service was good throughout the evening. Fantastic feast had by all!
    We were set up down the very back of the restaurant so for those against the back wall, needing to get out was a bit of an issue, but otherwise a brilliant night.
  • The Grace Sydney

    Hotels Sydney, NSW
    Had another one night corporate stay at The Grace which was lovely.
    Very comfortable and breakfast and wi-fi included.
    TV didn't work but otherwise an easy stay.
    Walking distance to all in the CBD.
  • Jamie's Italian

    Restaurants Brisbane, QLD
    Really enjoyed the $25 2 course lunch at Jamie's.
    3 courses also available for $30.
    The truffle tagliatelle entree was lovely, followed by the steak for main.
    Nice atmosphere is lovely and the bar area good for tapas and drinks.
  • Hot Gossip

    Clothing Retailers Burleigh Heads, QLD
    Lovely swimwear, casual dresses, shorts, tops, bikinis, hats and everything you need for a beachy stay in Burleigh Heads.
    Only a small store but still has fitting rooms.
    Great when sales are on!
  • Village

    Home Decor Retailers Burleigh Heads, QLD
    Gorgeous home wares available from Village.
    Lovely soft furnishings, cushions, tables & chairs, beds, lamps, candles and rugs.
    Really beautiful options.
  • Wild Fish & Chips

    Restaurants Broadbeach, QLD
    One of the newest stores on the Patio, Wild Fish and Chips caters to health nuts and beyond!
    Sashimi bowls of tuna or salmon available, along with grilled or battered fish, and fries of potato or sweet potato also available.
    Staff are really friendly!
    Store floor was a bit oily/slippery but a nice and tasty evening meal enjoyed.
  • 2XU

    Clothing Retailers Biggera Waters, QLD
    Just a small store at Harbour Town with more active wear in it.
    Socks to tennis caps (do people still wear them?), tights, puffer jackets, skins and sports apparel.
    Again, not my thing, but a good range if that's what you're after!
  • JB Hi-Fi

    Electronic Equipment & Appliance Manufacturers Biggera Waters, QLD
    Lots of markdowns at JB Hi-Fi from Nespresso machines to huge television sets.
    A newer store at Harbour Town if you're short on appliances, and may just have what you're looking for.
    I wasn't needing anything electrical but sometimes it's good to just check out what's available in new tech.
  • Oakley

    Clothing Retailers Biggera Waters, QLD
    Good size store at Harbour Town. My husband was looking for a new cap to keep the hair out of his face when training and found just what he was after at Oakley.
    There's also T-shirts, shorts and beanies.
    Plenty to browse through when bargain hunting at the outlets.
