What’s on in Brisbane this weekend

A wise source once made the bold proclamation that everybody’s working for the weekend – to be honest, we couldn’t agree more. Our river-wrapping town is always buzzing with cool things to do but things have kicked into overdrive as of late – from Zorba lines and pups in the mall to horror movie campouts and laneway wine parties, we’ve dug around to find out what’s on in Brisbane on the May 18–21 weekend. more

Ahh … Greek out! The foodie’s guide to Paniyiri Greek Festival

You’ve put up with our ravenous raving for long enough – the time is finally here for us all to stuff our faces with the best food stuffs the Paniyiri Greek Festival has to offer. We're sure you're already well acquainted with drool-worthy deliciousness of honey puffs, haloumi and souvlaki, so we thought we'd run you through some must-try morsels at Paniyiri that you may not have eaten before.

Show your true Queensland colours – the Maroon Festival brings us fun, food and footy

Some things are just so Brisbane it hurts – if you know what we mean when we refer to Milton mangoes and the Brown Snake, you’re on that serious sunshine state level (just FYI, we’re talking about XXXX and the Brisbane River in case you didn’t know). Another thing that gets Queenslanders seriously fired up is a little sports match called the State of Origin, so if you’re a fan then you should probably be sitting down to read this – for the first time ever, we are getting an all-in celebration dedicated to everything Queensland and rugby league! The Maroon Festival will be hitting the South Bank Parklands from May 28–31, bringing with it a wave of fun, food and (of course) footy. more

Sashay this way – the Queensland Cabaret Festival returns with a star-studded schedule

Cabaret is one of those things that you can’t really pin down into any specific description. Most of us are familiar with the vague, abstract concept – smoky rooms, dimly lit tables, clicking fingers and simmering sensuality. Turns out there is so much more to the genre than we give it credit for – and there is a dedicated event set to show us what it’s all about. The Queensland Cabaret Festival is returning from June 1–15, sashaying into three key venues to bring us a load of sauce, sizzle and spark with a serious side of heart. more

Treat your skin to plant-based purity with Saya Skincare

Your skin is technically your largest organ, so it makes sense to take darn good care of it. The market is flooded with all manner of products that promise everything from eternal youth to a blemish-free face, but often these bigger brands are packed with gnarly chemicals – not to mention that a lot of cosmetic giants still test on animals (the absolute worst). Saya Skincare is here to save the day, offering a range of certified organic and plant-based products that proves nature really is the ultimate healer. more

James Turrell set to illuminate GOMA with a spectacular light installation

GOMA has been pulling out all the stops in a series of presents to the people, featuring everything from late-night concerts and sweet exhibitions to permanent art. The latest gift comes in the form of a breathtaking light installation from internationally acclaimed artist James Turrell, who is set to illuminate the building’s iconic facade. more
