Get your creative on: 7 ways to get creative this February and March

Many of the activities that lead to that state of flow, which has untold mental and physical health benefits are creative, and people have been doing them for centuries. Weaving baskets, painting landscapes, fixing cars, writing poems, making furniture. The list is endless. One of the benefits of living in a city like the Gold Coast is…

Gold Coast restaurants: The new kids on the block (part II)

Emerging from the hive of culinary activity that was ‘2014’, we might have wondered what else 2015 could bring! Eateries and bars popped up all over the place at an amazing rate, improving our range of dining choice. No longer seen as purely a tourist destination, the Gold Coast’s appeal to foodies increased, being arguably the biggest winner in the Brisbane Times Good Food Guide Awards, winning fourteen hats, the largest growth area for culinary talent in the state. With 2014’s new culinary star venues such as Kiyomi, Hank and Double Zero having claimed national and international recognition, concept-driven standout restaurants such as Etsu, Bonita Bonita, The Paddock, Gemelli and Cucina…
