Brews, beats, strongman battles and eats – strap yourself in for the Beer InCider Experience

Us Australians as a people have gained something of an international reputation in regards to our drinking habits – particularly that we’re really damn good at it. Here’s the thing though – the booze that is being produced in Australia is some of the best in the world, so it’s no wonder we enjoy a tipple or two. Our craft beer and cider culture is actually killing it, largely due to a passionate subculture that has added a serious dose of sophistication to our national profile. One event that champions this movement is the Beer InCider Experience, headed to its new and much larger home at the Brisbane Showgrounds from September 22–23 to bring us more fun, flavour and frivolity than ever before. more

Get a special sneak peek at the iconic spaces of our city during Brisbane Open House

A wise man once said, “If you had one shot – one opportunity – to seize everything you ever wanted … would you capture it or just let it slip?” While Eminem may not have been talking explicitly about Brisbane Open House, his words can definitely be applied to the event. On the weekend of October 7–8, visitors are provided with the super-rare chance to gain access to some of our city’s most interesting, iconic and often totally private spaces. Whether you’re an architecture die-hard, a bit of a design nerd or just have a bit of a curious streak, this is one weekend you won’t want to miss. more

Get the scoop on Brisbane’s edible cookie dough craze

We’ve all heard the warnings – cookie dough should not be eaten raw. Yeah, yeah, we get it – but the stuff taste too darn good to not secretly sample! Well, the day the children inside us have waited for is here – witness the dawning of the age of edible cookie dough. Several intrepid outfits have created recipes for cookie dough without the nasties, meaning that we can finally indulge in our dream dessert without (some of) the guilt. more

Let your baller fantasies run wild when Sanctuary Cove Festival brings its luxury toys to town

There are two things here at The Weekend Edition that we can always get behind – living a little, and dreaming a lot. We may not have the funds to drop on a brand-new Ferrari or a swish yacht, but it doesn’t hurt to entertain the possibility, right? Whether you’ve got cash to splash or are simply an admirer of all things fast and shiny, we have some news that is sure to excite you. On Sunday October 1, the Gold Coast’s premier destination for all things luxe will come alive for the Sanctuary Cove Festival, an extravaganza showcasing some of the most covetable names in the automobile and boating industries. more

Deadly Ponies teams up with My Little Pony for a colourful and charming collab

If you're an 80s baby, then we can almost guarantee that you owned a string of My Little Pony figurines and spent hours upon hours in your bedroom brushing and plaiting their brightly coloured little mains. When we heard that New Zealand's luxury accessories label Deadly Ponies had teamed up with Hasbro's iconic My Little Pony brand, our hearts well and truly fluttered. These timeless designs are bringing some of our best childhood memories back to life. more

The Roadtrip Series: explore the great outdoors with our favourite natural hideaways

Ahh, winter – we hardly knew ye. Not that this corner of the earth ever really gets very chilly, but it seems like we’re headed towards a particularly steamy spring and summer. You have two choices here – you can engage in full hermit mode and turn your apartment into an air-conditioned bunker where you only emerge for snacks (boring), or you can absolutely make the most of our state’s amazing pockets of natural splendour by getting out and amongst it all (that’s more like it). We’ve teamed up with our official site partner Mercedez-Benz Brisbane and its nature-lovin’ ambassador Sofie Formica to bring you a list of our favourite natural landscapes in and around Brisbane – secret water holes included. more
