Join literary icon Kate Morton for a captivating evening of conversation at Museum of Brisbane

If you've ever browsed the fiction section of your local bookstore, you've most likely set your eyes on a copy (and probably taken home) of one of Kate Morton's novels. Avid readers are well acquainted with Kate's literary prowess, with her critically acclaimed titles The Lake House, The Distant Hours and The Clockmaker's Daughter filling a spot on many book shelves around the world. Now, one of Australia’s biggest literary exports is back in our river city for a very special conversation at Museum of Brisbane on Friday April 30, and you could say we're more than just a little bit excited. more

Grow micro-greens with micro effort – say hello to Micropod

It’s a well-known story – you decide to level up your dining experience by growing your own produce and fall into the trap of thinking that maybe this time your plants won’t die from neglect. Fast forward a few weeks and all you have is a withered mess to clean up and you find yourself (yet again) reaching for the plastic-wrapped supermarket substitute. Sound familiar? Never fear, friends, because we may have the solution for you to become a green thumb – it’s called Micropod. more

It’s back, baby! Live your best life at this evening full of wine, cheese and bubbles at Treasury Brisbane

The snap lockdown just before Easter weekend threw us all for a bit of a loop, casting plans into disarray and causing some devastating cancellations for events we were all looking forward to. However, you can't keep a good thing down – and one of the casualties of that fateful weekend has risen like a phoenix from the ashes to provide us with the glorious party that was snatched away at the last minute. Treasury Brisbane has rescheduled its much-anticipated Cheese, Wine and Bubbles soiree to Friday April 30, taking over its magical courtyard with top-tier bubbles, worldly wines, culinary delights and live entertainment (all COVID safe, of course). more

Sweet dreams (are made of this) – South Bank welcomes dessert dispensary Ice Dream

Ice-cream is amazing by itself, but it's hard to deny that just about every scoop of ice-cream can be improved with a tasteful (and tasty) topping. But what if the topping was weaved into the ice-cream itself? We're not talking about crudely crushed and mashed in confections – think ingredients smoothly blended and imbued in each spiral of soft-serve. Ice Dream in South Bank has taken some cues from international dessert trends for its Grey Street pop-up, where all sorts of tasty combinations are whipped up in a flash. more
